Hi chaps

Can someone help me with some SQL please? I need to select records with a "enter_date" field which is between the start of last week and the end of last week.

That is, not within the last 7 days, but within the last week period.

Any one know how to format that select section to do that?

select * from yourtable
where enter_date >=  dateadd(wk, datediff(wk, 0, getdate()) - 1, 0)  --first day of last week
and enter_date <t dateadd(wk, datediff(wk, 0, getdate()), 0) --first day of this week

WHERE
Datepart(Week,enter_date)=Datepart(week,current_timestamp)-1

Adding the above where statement will get all data with enter_date in the last full week.
