How would I write a function that returns the previous week's date range?  For instance, if the run date is Monday 3/18/2002, it'll return "3/10/2002 - 3/16/2002."

Thanks, although I modified it slightly for a datetime field, i.e.

date_beg = Date - Weekday(Date) - 6 & " 00:00:00"
date_end = Date - Weekday(Date) & " 23:59:59"

For some reason, the points went to bill02, even though I accepted your comment as the answer.  Is there a bug of somekind?
