How Can My Query Return Only Items With a Date from "Last Week"?

To make it easier, it already assigns a "week ending" date, so every record has a Saturday date. I just want to have the returns limited to the items with the date from "last Saturday"

I will run this query any day from monday to Friday of "This Week", but I always want it to ONLY show the results from last week.

Does that make sense? thanks.

Where [Week Ending] = date() - weekday(Date(), vbSaturday)

Fyed:

My WHERE clause looks like this...

WHERE ((CAR_Requests.Status)="Closed") And Where([Closed Date]=date()-weekday(Date(),vbSaturday))

I got an "Undefined Function in WHERE Clause" Error when trying to execute it. Did I do something wrong?

Thanks

Try:

WHERE CAR_Requests.Status="Closed"
And [Closed Date]=date()-weekday(Date(),7))

If this is in a query, you will probably have to replace vbSaturday with the numeric value of 7
