In this video I will show you how to use the DatePart function to isolate specific parts of a date/time value such as the day of the year, week of the year, month, quarter, and so on. DatePart offers some options that other functions don't have.

Damon from Waterville, Ohio (a Platinum Member) asks: I have a query that shows sales for the year, but right now I have to type in the start date (say 1/1/2021) and the end date (12/31/2021) and it's a bit of a pain EVERY time I run the query. Is there any way I can simplify that to just type in the year only?


Members will learn about the FirstDayOfWeek and FirstWeekOfYear options, how to determine if a date falls within the same calendar week as the current date, and how to determine if a date falls in the same quarter of the current year.

Member Addendum

I completely forgot to mention this in the video: the whole reason why it's handy to use the mathematical approach I showed to calculate the current quarter is because it makes it much easier to find records in the next quarter, or the previous quarter, or even use this for months. That way if you want the next quarter, and you're in the 4th quarter, you don't have to add 1 to the year and make the quarter value 1. Just use the little math trick I showed you and add 1 to that value. See how easy? I cover this in a lot more detail in the DateTime Seminar
