Is there a way to within a query to use a date calculation to do the following rather than having to do it with php

select * from table
where DATE >=  '2011-09-17' (todays date)
AND DATE <=  '2011-09-24'  (one week from now)

If I'm understanding correctly, you can use mySQL's date functions to calculate the dates.

SELECT *
FROM     table
WHERE  DATE >= curDate()
AND       DATE <=  DATE_ADD(curDate(), INTERVAL 7 DAY)

Try this:

mysql> select * from table where date_column between  '2011-09-17'and  '2011-09-24';

mysql> Select * from tables where date > "2011-09-17' and CREATE_TIME < "2011-09-24";
