View as plain text  

just calculate the two dates, and use WHERE order_date BETWEEN (calculated start date) AND
(calculated end date)

This avoids using functions on the actual column when possible, since that will prevent
using indexes to find your query results.

Subject: Weeks

Hi All,

trying to write some SQL that will give me records for the CURRENT WEEK.

Example, starting on a Sunday and going through Saturday.
This week it would be Dec 27 - Jan 2.

I am doing this so I can write a query that will show orders that are placed during the
current week.

Here is what I have, but this is showing from today for the next seven days.

SELECT * FROM orders WHERE WEEK(NOW(), 7) = WEEK(orders.order_date, 7)
 AND DATEDIFF(NOW(),orders.order_date) < 7;

Would anyone have any advice?
