MS Access Query help, querying for certain days between 2 dates.

I have a query in Access that queries Oracle tables and pulls data based on a specified date range...start date and end date.  What I would like to be able to do, without using VBA if possible, is to use the query I currently have to pull data for a date range, but specify only certain weekdays that I want, i.e Mon-Thur.

So when a user enters a start date and an end date, the query will return data between those dates for Monday through Thursday only.  Is this possible?  If not I will just write the VBA code to do it instead...thanks.

Could you use the to_char function?

Convert your date field to a day of the week numerical equiv with to_char(DATEFIELD, 'D')...
....where to_char(DATEFIELD, 'D') > 1 and to_char(DATEFIELD, 'D') < 5....

If the table you want to query contains the field fdate for the date, you write the following

SELECT Table.*
FROM Table
WHERE (((Table.fdate)>=[enter date1] And (Table1.fdate)<=[enter date2]) AND ((Weekday([fdate])) Between 1 And 4));
