Hi Joely,

Take a look at this link,

http://www.ellipse-data.com/delphifaq/delphi_faq_1.html#2.5.8.2

there is a function called week of year on the page.

Try this:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  CurrentDate, Year, Jan1, Week :string;
  Days :integer;
begin
  CurrentDate := DateToStr(Now);
  Year := copy(CurrentDate, Length(CurrentDate)-1,2);
  Jan1 := '1/1/'+Year;
  Days := Trunc(Now-StrToDate(Jan1));
  Str((Days div 7)+1, Week);
  Panel1.Caption := Week;

end;

If you are using the RXlib, then you can find that function in the dateutils unit.

You must get date_ in TDateTime type like
date_:=now;
in next step you must truncate this variable like
date_:=trunc(date_);
and last step, is calculated number of day of week:
day:=(date_ mod 7)-2;

It all...
