in ms sql i'm trying this:

set datefirst 1
select top 100 percent datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE]) as weeknum,
         max([ENTRYDATE]) as [Week Commencing],
         sum(ISNULL(cast((PRODUCTDOLLARS/100) as decimal(25,2)),0))
         , count(ISNULL([FULLORDERNO],0))
from ORDERHEADER
where
     FULLORDERNO like 'W%' and STATUS <> 'PD' and ENTRYOPER = 'WEBMACS' and
     Datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE]) <> Datepart(ww,getdate())
group by DatePart(yy,[ENTRYDATE]),Datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE])
order by [Week Commencing]

the code runs but the totals and counts are not correct....  can you see something in there that could account for incorrect totals?

apologies, I see that you have set datefirst.  I have a few questions though, why "TOP 100 percent" since it's everything? also, count(ISNULL([FULLORDERNO],0)) is equal to count(*) since COUNT adds 1 for each NON-NULLvalue.  furthermore, it cannot be null, because FULLORDERNO like 'W%'  ensures it.  
last question is, shouldn't this be
min([ENTRYDATE]) as [Week Commencing] instead of MAX so that it's the Monday that's showing?
given Set DateFirst 1 = Monday

the query looks right otherwise, so no clue

can you explain how you "see" that the counts and totals are not correct?
I have to agree with imitchie that the query looks correct, at least in syntax...

ok, i've modified the query to set the datefirst to sunday.....
set datefirst 7
select  datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE]) as weeknum,
         min([ENTRYDATE]) as [Week Commencing],
         sum(ISNULL(cast((PRODUCTDOLLARS/100) as decimal(25,2)),0))
         , count(*)
from ORDERHEADER
where
     FULLORDERNO like 'W%' and STATUS <> 'PD' and ENTRYOPER = 'WEBMACS' and
     Datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE]) <> Datepart(ww,getdate())
group by DatePart(yy,[ENTRYDATE]),Datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE])
order by [Week Commencing]


the last couple of lines of results are:
weeknum      Week Commencing      Column 3      Column 4
46      20071111                           132915.9      1188
47      20071118                            91339.6      800

 that last line should be covering 11-18 thru 11-24, right?  and is it not building a line for 11-25 thru today's date because the week isnt complete yet?

Datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE]) <> Datepart(ww,getdate())
ensures that unless it's the prior week or earlier, it won't be part of the result. so yes, because the week isn't complete yet.
if you do want to include a running total of the current week, try
Datepart(ww,[ENTRYDATE]) <= Datepart(ww,getdate())
