Just a comment to highlight that  the *format* of the date is not particularly relevant as that is only how the date is *displayed*. However as your date field does include the time of day that will effect the SQL that you need to select data from the last seven days.

The reason is that Date() returns just a bare date, with no apparent time value, but that is misleading because 8/26/2010 really means MIDNIGHT on 8/26/2010, ie. just after we moved from 8/25/2010.

That is why capricorn1 uses datevalue([createdDate]) in the SQL as datevalue gets rid of the time portion, and so you can be sure that records with any time value will get included as long as the date part is 7 days ago.
