Select results from previous Sunday

My boss wants me to create a view for him that lists sales each week from Sunday.

So, on Sunday morning, the sales will be 0. As the day goes on, it will increase as sales come in.

By Saturday, this count should be quite high

But when he looks Sunday morning again, the count will reset to 0 and increase again throughout the week.

I'm not sure how on earth to go about this

SELECT product, count(id) FROM sales where dateSold >= Sunday

He wants a web page to show him this so we have php to help us, do we have date functions in mysql that we can use?


RE: Select results from previous Sunday

Sorted, I used PHP to get the date instead of mess about with sql that I didn't know as he wanted the page creating quickly.

$previousSunday = date('Y-m-d', strtotime('previous sunday', strtotime($todaysDate)));

If anyone does know a mysql version I'd still be happy to learn it however.
