all Saturdays,  just the "last Saturday", or something else?

& any chance of you telling us the table name and the field names?

All Saturdays. I need to look at sales totals for that time period over the last couple of years. If I can get a query that selects just that period it is easy for me to write a report that will give me the numbers I need. Besides I might just learn something.

The table is [Product History]  Fields of relevance are [Product Code], [Description One], [Sales Value], [Transaction Date] and [Transaction Time].
