I have a date grouped by week. How do I display the week value. Like 7/12/09 to 7/18/2009?
I tried something like this but it wants a date for the datedadd function.
GroupName ({Command.SENT_DATE}, "weekly") & " to " & DateAdd ("d",6 ,GroupName{Command.SENT_DATE}, "weekly") )

if the group name is a properly formatted date, you could use CDATE(GroupName{Command.SENT_DATE}, "weekly")) inside your DateAdd formula
