My WHERE Clause Using DatePart is Not Working the Way I Need it to

I am using the following WHERE clause to attemp to pull only data from LAST WEEK from a table

WHERE DatePart("ww", [15th_St_Panel_Plant_FPY.ProductionDate]) = (DatePart("ww", Date())-1) AND DatePart("yyyy", [15th_St_Panel_Plant_FPY.ProductionDate]) = (DatePart("yyyy", Date()));


However, when I compare the query return to manually calculated data from Last Week, the numbers do not match.

The ProductionDate is in the format mm/dd/yyyy. The first day of the week is intended to be Sunday.

Is there something in my Syntax, or am I just wrong in trying to do it this way?

try:

WHERE [ProductionDate] >= DateAdd("d", -weekday(Date())-6, Date())
AND [ProductionDate] < DateAdd("d", -Weekday(Date()) + 1, date())

You may need to tweak the values of -6 and +1 to get the precise definition of "last week" that you are looking for.

Glad to help.
