Hi,
I need help writing a stored procedure that takes the date entered and converts it to a week number stored as a variable which is then passed into a sql statement. Example: user enters 4/6/2009 as a date input it returns week 15 as @week, which is then used in a select statement:
select * from dbtest where createddate = @week. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

select datediff(dd,cast(datePart(yyyy,FieldName) as varchar) + '-'+'01'+'-'+'01',FieldName ) / 7 from tablename will give you the no of weeks

Do you want your week to represent 7 days from Sunday to Saturday of any given entered date?

--Sample input date:
declare @InputDate datetime
set @InputDate = '2009-04-06'

--This removes the time component.
set @inputdate = dateadd(d, datediff(d, 0, @inputdate),0)
--This translates @Inputdate into Sunday of that week.
select @inputdate = @InputDate-(((@@datefirst+datepart(dw, @inputdate))%7)-1)

-- Now you say >= Sunday at midnight and < Next Sunday.
select * from dbtest
where createddate >= @week
and createddate  < @week-7

FYI:  I've wrapped the logic inside of a UDF and posted it over on our site at SQL Server Nation.

Yes, I would like the weeks represented from Sunday to Saturday using a date entered by the user to be inputed as a variable used in a stored procedure. Thanks

in post http:#a24078412

The last line:
and createddate  < @week-7

should be:
and createddate  < @week+7

Other than that, try what I've already posted.

Thanks, it worked perfectly but I was hoping to use the @week variable against a field that has the created date already calculated with the week number in a table...so when the user enters the start date of the week(2009-04-05)....it will convert it to a week number(15) which is then used in the select query : Select * from dbtable where columna = @week. Sorry if I didn't explain it better in the initial post.

So what happens if they pass January 1, 2009?  That's a Thursday.  And only January 1-3 will have Week Number 1, December 28-31 will have week 53 from the previous year.

I see your point, I guess using the week number would not work in that example. Thanks again for your help. I'll use the previous example where createddate >= @week
and createddate  < @week+7.
