MYSQL/PHP using date differences to seperate data into tables..

P: 1
Relatively new to PHP and MySQL...

I've got a field named live_date as a date type field within my DB. I need to split the display table into M-F weeks, projected out from todays date based on the data records live_date..


today is 12-4-06

I need to display a table for data with a live_date between 12/4 and 12/9, another table for data between 12/10 and 12/16, etc..

I'm having trouble figuring out how to use the now() or currdate() function with intervals to do it.. or am I following the wrong track... should I be using date_format() through MySQL or date() through PHP...

the web pages displaying the info are PHP, and we're using PHPMyAdmin 2.8 and MySQL 5..
