Extract day of the week from a date field in ArcGIS

So your are ArcGIS 10 (ArcView licence only) and have a large dataset with a Date field. You want to select all those dates that fall on a specific day or days of the week. How would use do this only using the tools in ArcGIS? Try this:

1. Add an integer field to the table

2. Use the field calculator and vbscript syntax YourDOWField = DatePart (“w”, [YourDateField]).

3. The field will then contain values 1-7 which translates to Sunday – Saturday. You can then select on this.

Keck & Wood is excited to announce our instructor led class schedule for the first quarter of 2011. This will include class on ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Server, Python, and Developing Web Applications using ArcGIS server with Flex, Silverlight and JavaScript.

To help stretch training and travel dollars a bit further, we are offering classes via our Virtual and Instructor Guided Internet Classrooms. We will still offer our traditional instructor led classes as well. Keck & Wood hopes providing classes through different media will give our customers more options to meet their needs and budgets.

As always, these classes can be used as education points toward getting or maintaining the GISP Certification. Other Organizations and States do accept these classes as continuing education and professional development points.
