you  can use a function to do that, place this codes in a regular module

Function GetSundayDate(CurrentDate) As Date
   If VarType(CurrentDate) <> 7 Then

        GetSundayDate = Null
   Else

    Select Case Weekday(CurrentDate)
        Case 1
            GetSundayDate = CurrentDate
        Case Else
            GetSundayDate = DateAdd("d", -Weekday(CurrentDate) + 1, CurrentDate)
    End Select
   End If
   
End Function

Hello brandonjel,

No need for a UDF; native functions can get it readily.

SELECT SomeDate, DateValue(Format(SomeDate, "d mmm yyyy")) - Weekday(SomeDate) + 1 AS SundayDate
FROM SomeTable

Regards,

Patrick
