Hi

I need some help.

I am using SQL 2005, and I have a calendar created, attach is an example of how my calendar looks.

What I would like to go is create a script that would update the table BTItem that has a field name 'DATE'
which would have a numeric value e.g.  1 = Sunday,  2 = Monday....etc...so the script would add 1 to the date field.

But here is the catch, I only want the script to run on working days.
Weekends and holidays I DO NOT want it to update the table BTItem.

What is the SQL code for this ???

I am at a lost.

How about having your script query your calendar table for DayNoWeek where DateGregorian = CONVERT(VARCHAR, GETDATE(), 101).  Then only let it run if DayNoWeek is between 2 and 6.

As for the holidays, you will need to add a column to your calendar table to put them in or create another table that you can join to, to get them.  A seperate table would probably be easier to manage.
