  • Found this awesome nugget buried in a do-it-all query that I clearly didn't give a crap about:
    (f.description='Weekly' and datediff(d,'1/4/2003',getDate())%7 = 0) --so weekly part works on Saturday dates only


    <inb4 everyone says use datepart you fool> <inb4 everyone else says your dbms is crap anyway, here's how you do it in X other dbms>

  • To be fair, if there wasn't a specific function to get the day of the week, this seems like the best method. And it should work as long as they don't change the days of the week.
