How about this?


set datefirst 1

declare @basedate as datetime

set @basedate = '20130808'

select
Today = @basedate,
NextMonday = dateadd(dd, 8-datepart(dw, @basedate), @basedate),
MondayAfterNext = dateadd(dd, 15-datepart(dw, @basedate), @basedate)



Happy Coding!!!

Thank you. That works beautifully. Can you tell me what "set datefirst 1" is used for? It doesn't change anything if I remove it.

To make sure first day of the week is Monday so you can assume that, to get the next Monday, just add 8 minus the current day of the week. Monday after next can be calculated by adding 15 minus current day of the week.

Here's the full description from BOL.

Remember that SET DATEFIRST will recompile your code. And also, not everyone has DATEFIRST 1 as default setting.

Try this code that is safe and doesn't rely on any setting and also, if doesn't have the annoying time portion.


SELECT GETDATE() AS Today,
DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '19000101', GETDATE()) / 7 * 7, '19000108') AS NextMonday,
DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '19000101', GETDATE()) / 7 * 7, '19000115') AS MondayAfterNext

Isn't this more or less the same thing with a little less math?


SELECT Today=GETDATE()
,NextMonday=DATEADD(week, 1+DATEDIFF(week, 0, GETDATE()), 0)
,MondayAfterNext=DATEADD(week, 2+DATEDIFF(week, 0, GETDATE()), 0)

My thought question: Have you ever been told that your query runs too fast?

My advice:
INDEXing a poor-performing query is like putting sugar on cat food. Yeah, it probably tastes better but are you sure you want to eat it?
The path of least resistance can be a slippery slope. Take care that fixing your fixes of fixes doesn't snowball and end up costing you more than fixing the root cause would have in the first place.


Need to UNPIVOT? Why not CROSS APPLY VALUES instead?
Since random numbers are too important to be left to chance, let's generate some!
Learn to understand recursive CTEs by example.
Splitting strings based on patterns can be fast!

Using WEEK as calculation is prone to at least two errors. In this case, if you are using a sunday you will get wrong result.
