I have a database which has product codes and release dates.

I want to be able to select all items that have a release date that falls within the current week.

I want a seperate select which selects all items that have a release date that falls within the following week.

Is there a way to set up the mysql select for the dates to fall in a certain week?  Or will I have to use a date range instead?

Example of use:  SELECT * FROM products_table where  GET_WEEK(product_release_date) = CURRENT_WEEK.

Here is solution that I figured out:

Current Week:
SELECT WEEK(CURRENT_DATE(),2);

Next Week:
SELECT (WEEK(CURRENT_DATE(),2) + '1');


Current Week:
SELECT * FROM `products` WHERE WEEK(release_date,2) = WEEK(CURRENT_DATE(),2);


Next Week:
SELECT * FROM `products` WHERE WEEK(release_date,2) = (WEEK(CURRENT_DATE(),2) + '1');


The "2" in SELECT WEEK(CURRENT_DATE(),2); determines if the week starts with Sunday or Monday and if the year has 0-53 or 1-53 weeks.  In my cases, I chose 1-53 weeks, and week starts with a Sunday.
