I'm using ACL, much like access/sql server but not quite as powerful or easy to use.  I was wondering if there was anything out there that I could adapt to work with my program.

in ms sql server, use DATENAME(dw,YOUR_DATE_FIELD) e.g. SELECT DATENAME(dr, getdate())  
  -- this function in your sql statement returns the day of the week (Sunday, Monday, and so on). so you can set a where condition to exclude/include rows.


in msaccess
SELECT Table1.dt
FROM Table1
WHERE (((Format([dt],"dddd"))="sunday")) OR (((Format([dt],"dddd"))="saturday"));
