you want to get the the send_date column of previous_week's from a table? if so, please do the below

in the below scenario I am assuming two things

1) your table name is X_table
2) your datetime sample or what ever is stored in a column sample_dt

replace them as in your actual stuff.

select send_date from x_table
where abs(datediff(dd,sample_dt,getdate())) = 7

SELECT ...
FROM dbo.tablename
WHERE
    send_date >= DATEADD(DAY, -7, DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()), 0)) AND
    send_date < DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()), 0)


You should avoid using any function, such as DATEDIFF(), on the column itself if at all possible, because if any function is used, SQL won't be able to fully utilize the index on that column.

select * from table where Convert(varchar,send_date,106) = Convert(varchar,dateadd(day, -7, getdate()), 106)

SELECT *

 WHERE send_date >= DATEADD(day, -7, CONVERT(DATE, GETDATE())) 
   AND send_date < CONVERT(DATE, GETDATE())
