Only Retrieve Data from 1 Week Ago from a Table

Only Retrieve Data from 1 Week Ago from a Table

(OP)
I have table where data is uploaded to it every day but I only want to retrieve the data from 1 week ago. I'd be running this report twice a week. Example:

Today is Friday, 04/10/2015 so I only want data from that table that was uploaded on Friday, 04/03/2015.
If I run this query on Tuesday, 04/14/2015 then I only want data from that table that was uploaded on Tuesday, 04/07/2015.

Help is very appreciated.

Thank you

Hi

Use date_sub() :

CODE --> MySQL

select
*

from the_table

where the_field = date_sub(curdate(), interval 1 week) 

Feherke.
