Regarding DAYOFWEEK function

Greetings,
In DB2, we have dayofweek function that returns a
numeric value for the current day (1 for sunday till 7 for saturday)

Is it possible to alter this function value, i mean 1 for monday till 7
for sunday?

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

That was easy :-). How can we set at the instance level. i mean how is
the exact implementation.

What's so bad about typing _ISO?

dayofweek_iso() is a function.
Try this:
VALUES dayofweek_iso(c urrent date)

Cheers

Thanks for reply Serge, but I think i was not able to put my question
properly. If i do VALUES dayofweek_iso(c urrent date), i get the numeric
value for the current day.
What i want is , some way through which i can set today(say tue) as the
first day of the week and mon as the last day at an instance level?

Is there a way?

TIA

You can't do this at the instance level.

Thanks Ian. Can we do it at database level?

No.

But you could always call the _ISO variation of the function and then decide
in your application which way to go. After all, you will usually convert
the numeric value to some textual name for the day, won't you?

Hello, I have code like dt.DayOfWeek.ToString(CultureInfo.CurrentCulture) where dt is a DateTime object. I get something like "Sunday", "Monday", etc... while I'm expecting it to be in French. I have a bilingual app in English and French. I don't have any problem elsewhere, like when outputting the month for example, but DayOfWeek is not working as I expected.

Have a group of dynamically created text boxes in a calendar like grid. At the head of each column, the textbox is to contain the day of the week.
