Something like this:

Declare      @Dat datetime
Set @Dat = '2006-07-18'


Declare @DateFirst tinyint

Set @DateFirst = @@DATEFIRST    -- Save old @@DATEFIRST value
SET DATEFIRST 6

Select      DATEADD(day, -DATEPART(weekday, @Dat) + 1, @Dat) FirstDayOfWeek,
      DATEADD(day, 7 - DATEPART(weekday, @Dat), @Dat) LastDayOfWeek
SET DATEFIRST @DateFirst

Select @@DATEFIRST    -- Restore old @@DATEFIRST value

This might be tad simpler:

Declare      @Dat datetime
Set @Dat = '2006-07-18'

Select      DATEADD(day, 7 - @@DATEFIRST -DATEPART(weekday, @Dat), @Dat) FirstDayOfWeek,
      DATEADD(day, 6 - DATEPART(weekday, @Dat), @Dat) LastDayOfWeek

Oops, I forgot to allow for a different @@DATEFIRST in the second expression, it should be:

Select      DATEADD(day, 7 - @@DATEFIRST - DATEPART(weekday, @Dat), @Dat) FirstDayOfWeek,
      DATEADD(day, 13 - @@DATEFIRST - DATEPART(weekday, @Dat), @Dat) LastDayOfWeek

Sorry for the multiple posts.

Hi altuwairqi2,


CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[ufn_GetLastDayOfWeek] ( @pInputDate DATETIME )
RETURNS DATETIME
BEGIN
    SET @pInputDate = CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), @pInputDate, 111)
    RETURN DATEADD(DD, 1 - DATEPART(DW, @pInputDate)+6, @pInputDate)
END
GO


select [dbo].[ufn_GetLastDayOfWeek]('20060716')



Aneesh R!
