James W :

This function returns the First, Last or any specified Day of the week as a date value.
In a blank column in the query insert:

FirstDayofWeek:([DateField] - Weekday([DateField]))+ 1

for the first day of the week or:

LastDayofWeek:([DateField] - Weekday([DateField])) + 7

for the last day of the week.

For any other day, just change the integer with the intger value that reprsents the weekday you are looking for.

Expert:  giftindex replied 2 years ago.

Are you trying to do this is a report?

How and when are you trying to change the first day of the week?

What are you trying to change it to?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
When i creat a pivot table for example weekly sales, for last week it is showing me week 45, while it should be week 44.
Expert:  giftindex replied 2 years ago.

Jan 1st was on a Saturday this year. We had a 1 day week.

How do you want to handle that ?

What is the first day of the week for you?

I mean, I would expect Jan 1 to be week one, then jan 2 thru 8 to be week 2?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
first day of the week should be Monday and first week is from 03/01/11 to 09/01/11
Expert:  giftindex replied 2 years ago.

Is it defaulting for a different day of the week being the first day?

Can you tell?

Is this a new report, or is changing this going to change all previously reprted data?

Did it work correctly before and all of a sudden something has changed?

Sorry for so many questions, but I just want to make sure I can help the best way.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Never tried it before i only started making this kind of pivotables reports arround 2 months ago and it is still giving me the same problems
