If it were me, I'd pick a day of the week, and use to_char(<date>,'D') = x (e.g., 1 for Sunday)

Ok, I'm drawing a blank here as my brain seems to hvae taken the afternoon off.  

I have a dataset:  


  • ------------------------ -------------------
HostA            Dev1                   9/1/2009         99,999

HostA            Dev1                   9/2/2009         99,999

HostA            Dev1                   9/3/2009         99,999



HostA            Dev2                   9/1/2009         89,999

HostA            Dev2                   9/2/2009         89,999

HostA            Dev2                   9/3/2009         89,999


What I need to do is come up with a query that takes the above data and ONLY shows dates of weekly intervals. I need to get the following dataset:  

(Weekly Snapshot)

HostA        Dev1        9/1/2009                 99,999

HostA        Dev1        9/8/2009                 101,999

HostA        Dev2        9/1/2009                 89,999

HostA        Dev2        9/8/2009                 91,999


I think I need to use an analytic function of some sort, but I cannot seem to come up with the syntax.  

Anyone have any suggestions/thoughts? (Obviously I could create another date table as a driver table and join the dates to it, but I know there's a simpler way)
