I used the following tutorial to create a calendar based report in SSRS. It is working but not exactly to what my requirements are,

My DBMS for scheduling ensures no tasks are added to Saturday's and Sunday's but I am not sure how to reflect that via this report the way it is currently built

Because of the way the query is built, right now tasks that aren't actually scheduled on a Saturday or Sunday are displaying as if they are because I haven't found  a way to filter out those days. I am hoping someone can tell me how to accomplish this.

Thanks for any help!

Ideally you'd have a Date dimension that contains a column to indicate which day of the week the record represents.  In that case you could just use a WHERE clause to filter out the weekend days.

Another option is to use either the DATEPART or DATENAME function.  Note that the result of DATEPART is influenced by the DATEFIRST setting, as following example indicates:

select DATEPART(dw, getdate())
select DATENAME(dw, getdate())

set datefirst 3;

select DATEPART(dw, getdate())
select DATENAME(dw, getdate())

Include below highlighted where clause to filter saturday and sunday. HTH.


SELECT
 DisplayOnCalendar = DENSE_RANK() OVER (ORDER BY d.Year, d.Month),
 d.Month,
 [Day] = DATEPART(DAY,d.[Date]),
 d.Year,
 [WeekDay] = DATEPART(WEEKDAY, d.[Date]),
 [Order] = DENSE_RANK() OVER (PARTITION BY d.Year, d.Month ORDER BY d.Date),
 d.Date,
 ebd.FullName
FROM
 Dates d
 LEFT JOIN EmployeeBirthDay ebd ON ebd.Month = DATEPART(MONTH,d.[Date]) AND ebd.Day = DATEPART(DAY,d.[Date])
WHERE ((DATEPART(dw, d.[Date]) + @@DATEFIRST) % 7) NOT IN (0, 1)

Code below (also) works regardless of any date or language settings:

WHERE
    DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, d.[Date]) % 7 NOT IN (5, 6)
