Get Dates from Sunday thru Saturday


I'm using the date picker and I need to know how (or if it's even possible), to select a date, and based on the date, have the actual query use the week the date was in and return all the records from that week (Sunday through Saturday)

Like - if I pick 8/24/2010 - it returns a date range of 8/22 through 8/28
I'd also like to display the date range in the report, somehow

Any ideas on how I do this?

problem with inner join

Hi, I'm trying to create an sql query with multiple inner joins, but I can't manage this. I have 3 tables (bookings, accountplan, costs), where the data come from. In accountplan are hold the accounts, in costs the cost codes and their names, in bookings the booked events. Based on a booking event, I need the account name, the name of the cost code and all data from bookings (I need the cred account name too, but I can't figure out yet, how I can get this) I tried this: "SELECT bookings.*, accountplan.accountname, costs.costname FROM bookings INNER JOIN accountplan ON bookings.debaccount=accountplan.account INNER JOIN costs ON bookings.costcode=costs.costcode" It is here a where clause too, but I tested it, it's ok. The above query results no rows. If I remove the costs table and the inner join with it, it works. What am I missing?

Hiding other month dates in ASP .Net Calendar Control

Often we need ASP .Net calendar control in our webpages. Most of the times we require navigation in between dates of the calendar control but there can be a requirement that when we want that users should not be able to select dates from month other than the current month.Some people might be thinking in mind that Microsoft has provided theShowNextPrevMonth property of a calendar control which can be set to false in order to disable the navigation in between months. Ok, this will disable navigation but what about the dates of adjacent months shown in current month?Following is the output of a normal Calendar control when ShowNextPrevMonth is not set to false.Note the red circles in above image. July and September will allow you to navigate through other months and red circles below will allow you to select dates of adjacent months.Ok now we set the ShowNextPrevMonth property to false and see the output. Following is the output in this case.So setting out the ShowNextPrevMonth property has disabled the July and Septemberlinks but dates of adjacent months are still there which can be selected as well. How to disable/hide these? Unfortunately there is no such default property provided using which one can disable or hide these dates but fortunately doing this using code is not a complex task. Use following code a

BCS Showing wrong dates

I have created an external content type which connects to a SQL database view so that it is read only.  It is an employee table that contains fullname hiredate and birthdate columns.  From this content type I have also created the external list and added it to the HR site on SharePoint Server 2010. When I connect to the view in SQL, and execute the table, it shows the proper dates.  When I view the list on SharePoint it shows the dates off by one day for both the hire date and birth date columns. I have deleted and recreated the content type using SharePoint Designer 2010 and no change. Any ideas what is happening?

Left Outer Join fails to return all records

I have a table tblDrop that contains 1067 records for 8/31/2010 and a table tblSoftcount that has 739 records, some with bad serial numbers. I need to match all of the records in tblDrop with those in tblSoftcount. I have a query using Left outer join that has worked for the duration of the application, but has recently stopped returing the full set of records from tblDrop. We have not changed the SQL versions on the server (compatibility level 2005). Here is the query: SELECT   v.SlotNum_ID, s.SlotNum_ID, v.PTNumber, s.PTNumber, v.DropBillAmount AS [Drop], v.ReportDate, v.DateValue     FROM tbl_Drop v LEFT OUTER JOIN tblSoftCount s ON v.SlotNum_ID = s.SlotNum_ID AND v.ReportDate = s.ReportDate WHERE   s.ReportDate = '8/31/2010' AND v.DropBillAmount <> 0 AND s.Slotnum_ID IS NULL;

MDX problem: Return the number of days in a given selection/range

I've had this problem for a couple of days and found some "solutions" online. However, none of them worked. The goal is to calculate Inventory Turnover, but the problem is I can't seem to return the current number of days in the selection. The solution I found was: Count(Descendants([Date].[Date Hierachy], [Date].[Date Hierachy].[Date])) Which returned this: http://www.jandd.be/images/q_return.jpg However, I just want it to return the number of days that are in the selection, so the number of days between (incl) 22/08 and 25/09. This is a screenshot of my datedim, if it helps: http://www.jandd.be/images/q_datedim.jpg I can imagine this could be real simple or some setting that I didn't find on the dimensions, but it would be really appreciated if I could find a solution like this...

Problem with Merge Join and condition splt trasnformations in SSIS 2008

  Hey, While working SSIS in 2008 we have encountering some weird problems with Merge, Merge Join and Condition Spilt transformations, here are the details... Condition Split and Merge Join and Condition Split: Please check the below diagram(not really just tried) for the complete details. Just FYI data is in sorted order   condition Split -> 420000      | 18                                                          | 419982  Merge Join(left)  -- src1(6000)      |10  Condition Split      |9     |1   the merge join transformation is not returning the complete 18 rows to the next transformation that's why we are missing 8 rows. But if we adds a sort transformation (getting warning as data is already sorted) before merge then complete 18 rows were passing to the condition split. Also tried modifing the source query just to return 18 rows then also it was passing the 18 rows to next trasnformation except with full load.       Merge: We have two sorted data sources and first one has 40000 records and second source have 12000 records and after the Merge transformation we have Condition Split transfor

how to return records in squence of inner join table?

Hi, I have test database with following script. I am trying to explain my problem with this sample db script. I am creating a temp. table with the ordered column from other table and then using that table to join the other table. If you notice the output of the below select query, the returned rows from first table are in the sequence of insertion not in the sequence of the temp. table. Is there any other way to retrieve rows in the sequence of temp. (joined) table?
