you will need a function to do that, place this codes in a regular module


Function MondayDate(CurrentDate) As String

   If VarType(CurrentDate) <> 7 Then
      MondayDate = Null
   Else
      Select Case Weekday(CurrentDate)
         Case 1       ' Sunday
            MondayDate = "Week Of " & Format(CurrentDate - 6, "mmm dd")
         Case 2       ' Monday
            MondayDate = "Week Of " & Format(CurrentDate, "mmm dd")
         Case 3 To 7  ' Tuesday..Saturday
            MondayDate = "Week Of " & Format(CurrentDate - Weekday(CurrentDate) + 2, "mmm dd")
       End Select
   End If
End Function



create a query like this

select [dateField], MondayDate([datefield])
from tableName

Hi,

As Field in a query Field as your Date

MondayDate: "Week of " & Format([Field1]-([Field1] Mod 7)+2,"mmm") & " " & Day([Field1]-([Field1] Mod 7)+2)

Open in new window

like
SELECT Table1.Date, "Week of " & Format([Date]-([Date] Mod 7)+2,"mmm") & " " & Day([Date]-([Date] Mod 7)+2) AS MondayDate
FROM Table1;

Open in new window

capricorn1 - I created the module.

Do I need to create a separate query to supply the report?

Not sure where I place the query below.


select [dateField], WeeklyDate([datefield])
from tableName

<Do I need to create a separate query to supply the report? >

what is the record source of your report ?

if it is a query,  post the SQL statement of the query.

if it is a table, you need to create a query and change the Record Source of the report.

after you created the query, post the SQL statement of the query.

so we can correct it if needed.

Here is my select statement for my new query:

SELECT tblDates.RefDate, WeekDates([datefield])
FROM tblDates;


I receive an error: Undefined function "Weekdates" in expression.

The Weekdates module is in my list of modules.

This would be ideal for a PivotTable, grouped by week.  Unless you are using Access 2013, where PivotTables have been dropped.
