Calculate to Next Sunday

I need to put a label in my access application that simply shows me the date for the following Sunday.  For example if today is Friday 3rd then it would show that the next date of the next sunday is 5th.  But when we get to Monday 6th I need that label to automatically show the following sunday which would be the 12th and so fourth.  Basically I have a rent charging application and the charges are calculated weekly on a sunday, and I need the label to show the next charge date

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

datepart("w", now(), vbSunday) returns the day of the week, sunday being 1
hence, use
dateadd("d", 8 - datepart("w", now(), vbSunday), now()) to get the next sunday

sorry to be a pain but I am new at Access and have basically inherited this application do I have to set the first line the datepart as a variable in the form before I can use the second line to display the info I need in a text box
You don't need that first part, angelIII was just showing you that using that function to return the day of the week for Sunday that Sunday = 1.

In the On Current or On Open or where ever it makes sense add this code. This assumes your date field is named txtDate.

   Me.txtDate = DateAdd("d", 8 - DatePart("w", Now(), [vbSunday]), Now())

This is a simple function I did one to get Saturday as a weekending date

Public Function getWeekEndingDate() As Date
Dim dayOfWeek As Integer
Dim dteWeekEndingDate As Date

dayOfWeek = Weekday(Date)

'dayOfWeek = 7

Select Case dayOfWeek
       Case 1
            dteWeekEndingDate = DateAdd("d", 6, Date)
       Case 2
            dteWeekEndingDate = DateAdd("d", 5, Date)
       Case 3
            dteWeekEndingDate = DateAdd("d", 4, Date)
       Case 4
            dteWeekEndingDate = DateAdd("d", 3, Date)
       Case 5
            dteWeekEndingDate = DateAdd("d", 2, Date)
       Case 6
            dteWeekEndingDate = DateAdd("d", 1, Date)
       Case 7
            dteWeekEndingDate = Date
       Case Else
            'error message... or
            'dteWeekEndingDate = Date  
End Select

getWeekEndingDate = dteWeekEndingDate

End Function
