Hi. I have an input form that asks for a date input. I want to make sure the date entered is a Monday always. What would be the best approach to this. Can I do this in the table as a check or in a form where the date is entered or in a vba function returning back to the form if there is an error? I assume I could use the following function?

DatePart ("w", StartDate)

or use the weekday() function, or Format() and ask for the day spelled out, so you can check for "Mon" or "Monday"
