Hello Experts,
I am working on a Crystal Report (version XI) that queries an Oracle database. The report is pulling records from the database that have a date field that falls within a specified date range. I need to pull these records within the specified date range, but only for dates that fall on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Is it possible to query for specific days in the record selection statement?  Thanks.

Use the DatePart function
DatePart("w", yourdatefield) IN [2,3,4]

w = weekday
crystal uses 1-7 to describe the days of the week,  You may have to adjust the 2,3,4 to get the right days depending on how you have the firstDayOfWeek configured within CR
