Our goal is to get the day of the week for the date '2009-12-17' as '5' regardless of the DateFirst setting.


SET DATEFIRST lets you define, when you want your week to start.

DATEPART (dw, <date>Wink gets you the "day of the week" for <date>, based upon the DATEFIRST definition we just did.

NOW:

"Our goal is to get the day of the week for the date '2009-12-17' as '5' regardless of the DateFirst setting."

sounds quite ... strange:

2009-12-17 was a Thursday.

You start your week on Sunday or Monday or Friday: 2009-12-17 was a Thursday!

Now: If you start your week on Monday, Thursday is the 4th day of the week, not the 5th.

Why should you make it the 5th, when it is the 4th?
