How do get the date of last saturday?

how do get the date of last saturday ?


this is a possible solution:

extract(‘WD’,now())=1,addDateTime(-1,‘DD’,now()), /sunday/
extract(‘WD’,now())=2,addDateTime(-2,‘DD’,now()), /monday/
extract(‘WD’,now())=3,addDateTime(-3,‘DD’,now()), /tuesday/
extract(‘WD’,now())=4,addDateTime(-4,‘DD’,now()), /wednesday/
extract(‘WD’,now())=5,addDateTime(-5,‘DD’,now()), /thursday/
extract(‘WD’,now())=6,addDateTime(-6,‘DD’,now()), /friday/
extract(‘WD’,now())=7,addDateTime(-7,‘DD’,now()),NULL /saturday/

I use extract to check which weekday is today and go specific days in the past to the last saturday.

If today is saturday and you want to get todays date, then you have to remove the last check or change addDateTime(-7,‘DD’,now()) to now().
