DTPicker -  How to determine the day of the week?

Hi Experts

I’m generating a weekly report every Monday (usually, except when a holiday lands on the Monday). The From/To dates would range from the Monday to Sunday of the previous week.

In our old system, the user would have to enter the From/To dates each time the report was generated. I would like to have these dates pre-populated in my Access form using Microsoft’s Date Time Picker (DTPicker).

The logic would be if today is Monday (August 30) then
From Date =  2004-08-23  
To Date = 2004-08-29

The same would apply if the report was generated on Tuesday (August 31) which would be the case if Monday was a holiday. The results would be the same.
From Date =  2004-08-23  
To Date = 2004-08-29

I know that I can subtract days from the DTPicker value
Example:
If DTPicker.Value = today’s date  (Monday, August 30)
then
DTPicker1. Value = DTPicker1.value – 7
If today was Tuesday I would subtract 8 from the value, etc. to get the FROM date

The problem I’m having is that I can’t identify if today is a Monday, Tuesday, etc…

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi JakeB52,

You can use the Weekday function.  Like this:

Select Case Weekday(Now)
  Case vbSunday
  Case vbMonday
  .
  .
  .
End Select
