Hi, I wonder if somone could help?

I am trying to use the select expert to select the next coming saturday and sunday only on the report.

I have tried a mixture of things but cant get it to work...


{date} = today + 1 and {date} = today + 2 which does not work.

I cant use an actual date as the report will need to be run every friday to retrieve sat and sun.

Any help would be great please.Smile

Hi
Hope you found an answer by now but if not,
I have used varying combinations of 'day of week' and 'current date' to set recurring reports to run on any day of a week but for the same period of days
 
for example {Date} = CurrentDate - Dayofweek(CurrentDate)
will always give you info for last Saturday
and  {Date} = CurrentDate - Dayofweek(CurrentDate)-1 will always give you data for last Friday 
regardless of what day of the week you pysically run your report
 
so {Date} = CurrentDate - Dayofweek(CurrentDate)+6 should give you this coming Saturday

here works a formula to always return a date that happens to be a Thursday. If its sunday thru wednesday the first part of the if statement runs, if its fri or sat, the else part runs.

shared Datevar Thur;

if Dayofweek(CurrentDate)<=5 then
Thur:= CurrentDate - Dayofweek(CurrentDate)+5 else

Thur:= CurrentDate - Dayofweek(CurrentDate)+12;
//when the date is 1/3/14 then dayofweek is 6. 1/3/14 minus 6+12 same as 1/3/14+6 which is 1/9/14
//when the date is 1/4/14 then dayofweek is 7. 1/4/14 minus 7+12 same as 1/4/14+5 which is 1/9/14
