find current calendar week
select DATEPART(WEEK,GETDATE())

Here is full solution:

DECLARE @datecol datetime = GETDATE();
DECLARE @WeekNum INT
, @YearNum char(4);

SELECT @WeekNum = DATEPART(WK, @datecol)
, @YearNum = CAST(DATEPART(YY, @datecol) AS CHAR(4));

-- once you have the @WeekNum and @YearNum set, the following calculates the date range.
SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 6, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 6) AS StartOfWeek;
SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 5, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 5) AS EndOfWeek;

--
SET @YearNum= CAST(DATEPART(YY, @NextDate) AS CHAR(4));
SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 6, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 6) AS StartOfWeek;
SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 5, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 5) AS EndOfWeek;

Hi Ravi,

Your code returns the current week number for the year. (10)

what I'm after is something that returns : 3/2/2014 - 3/8/2014

And 3/2/2013  -  3/8/2013

Commented:
3/2/2014 - 3/8/2014 is the date range of current year of the 10 th week.

and date of 10th week of last year was 3/2/2013  -  3/8/2013

If I have a table with multiple invoices with dates,  how would the syntax look for sum of invoices for just week 10?

Commented:
DECLARE @FirstDate as datetime = DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 6, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 6) --AS StartOfWeek;
DECLARE @SecondDate as datetime = DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 5, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 5) --AS EndOfWeek;

Select sum(Amount) from Invoices Where InvDate > = @FirstDate and InvDate <=@SecondDate
Commented:
Same for last year
Declare @ThirdDate as datetime =DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 6, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 6) --AS StartOfWeek;
Declare @ForthDate as Datetime =DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 5, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 5) --AS EndOfWeek;

Select sum(Amount) from Invoices Where InvDate > = @ThirdDate and InvDate <=@ForthDate

Commented:
where does it differentiate Current and Last year?

I get this error when I run the code:
Cannot assign a default value to a local variable.

Commented:
Thanks ravikantninave,

I got it.  I had to set those values on the next line. This might be a Sql 2005 issue.
Thanks again.

What I Used:

/*
DECLARE @datecol datetime
set @datecol = GETDATE();
DECLARE @WeekNum INT
set @WeekNum = DATEPART(week,GETDATE());
DECLARE    @YearNum char(4);
set @YearNum =DATEPART(year,GETDATE());

Declare @NextDate datetime
DECLARE    @YearNum2 char(4);
SET @YearNum2= CAST(DATEPART(YY, @NextDate) AS CHAR(4));

-- once you have the @WeekNum and @YearNum set, the following calculates the date range.
SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 6, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 6) AS StartOfWeek;
SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 5, '1/1/' + @YearNum) + (@WeekNum-1), 5) AS EndOfWeek;

SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 6, '1/1/' + @YearNum2) + (@WeekNum-1), 6) AS StartOfWeek;
SELECT DATEADD(wk, DATEDIFF(wk, 5, '1/1/' + @YearNum2) + (@WeekNum-1), 5) AS EndOfWeek;

How would I get the sum for the quarter?

Commented:
I would like to capture the same data quarterly compare to last years quarter.

Commented:
first three months of the year? or what? Find quarter :

SELECT DATEADD(mm, (quarter - 1) * 3, year_date) StartDate,
quarter QuarterNo
FROM
(
SELECT '2013-01-01' year_date
) s CROSS JOIN
(
SELECT 1 quarter UNION ALL
SELECT 2 UNION ALL
SELECT 3 UNION ALL
SELECT 4
) q
