I have a request to build a one page time reporting form that allows a user to select any Sunday of the year. Once they have selected a Sunday, they should be shown a table with 7 columns representing the days of their selected week; each column should have an input to allow the user to enter the number of hours they worked that day. Upon save the user records are stored in the database.
I already have a a user table, but I need to create a table for the time reporting. I should have one table for the days of the week....i.e. Sunday thru Saturday with a foreign key relationship to the user, but I'm a little thrown by the any Sunday of the year selection? How should that be handled? How should I capture that in the database (another table)? Also, how would I allow the user to only select a Sunday out of the year? I can have a calendar popup, but I'm not quite sure how to only allow the Sundays of the year be selected.
Any suggestions or better ideas on the table construction would be helpful?
