Hello there I am trying to create a recusion that creates an entry for a weekly  start and end Friday to Friday

``````;WITH cteIDate AS (
SELECT  dateadd(day, (@@datefirst - datepart(weekday, dateadd(year, YEAR(Getdate()) - 1900, 0)) + (10 - @@datefirst) * 2) % 7, dateadd(year, YEAR(Getdate()) - 1900, 0)   ) as  StartDate
, dateadd(day, (@@datefirst - datepart(weekday, dateadd(year, YEAR(Getdate()) - 1900, 0)) + (10 - @@datefirst) * 2) % 7, dateadd(year, YEAR(Getdate()) - 1900, 0)   ) + 7  as EndDate
UNION ALL
SELECT dateadd(day , 7, StartDate) AS StartDate, dateadd(day , 7, EndDate) AS EndDate
FROM cteIDate
WHERE Year(dateadd(day , 7, EndDate)) < Year(Getdate()) + 2

)

SELECT * from cteIDate ci
OPTION (MAXRECURSION 52)
)

SELECT * from cteIDate ci
OPTION (MAXRECURSION 52)
``````

Getting this error
``````Msg 530, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
