# Date Query

Good Afternoon,
I created a deadline list (an access report)for our
department based on a query. The information, based on the
week it is due, is sorted by week. So, i created a field
in my base query:

Week: IIf([dtDateDue] Between (Now()-1) And (Now()+5),1,IIf
([dtDateDue] Between (Now()+6) And (Now()+12),2,IIf
([dtDateDue] Between (Now()+13) And (Now()+19),3,IIf
([dtDateDue] Between (Now()+20) And (Now()+26),4,IIf
([dtDateDue] Between (Now()+27) And (Now()+33),5,IIf
([dtDateDue] Between (Now()+34) And (Now()+40),6,IIf
([dtDateDue] Between (Now()+41) And (Now()+47),7,IIf
([dtDateDue] Between (Now()+48) And (Now()+54),8,0))))))))

this catalogues two months naming the weeks--week 1, week
2, etc. This is a fabulous way for us to look at our
deadlines. i have color coded the report to change every
other week. The problem is is that this is a great formula
if it is monday, but no other time of the week. At times,
we have to update the deadline list throughout the week
and it changes the week. Is there a way to create this
formula to always query for the current week monday
through friday (deadlines never happen on weekends)?
Any ideas would be awesome.
Thanks,
Angie

Use the Weekday function to determine what day of the week it is.
Weekday(Date) will return 2 for Monday, 3 for Tuesday, 4 for Wednesday and
so on. Factor that into your calculation (sorry: too lazy to do the math
myself right now!)

You might take a look at the DatePart function or use the format function to
extract the week number.

DatePart("ww",Date()) returns 37 on my computer

Format(Date(),"ww",1,3) returns 36
since I specified that Sunday was the first day of the week (1) and I wanted to
start counting with the first full week of the year (3).

Be warned that the week number can get a little strange around the first of the
year/end of the year. In that for the last few days of December you might have
a week 53 in 2004 and a week 1 in 2005 for the first few days of January even
though you might consider all those days to be in the same week. Read the help closely.
