Default How do I setup a date field property that allows only Saturdays?

For example:

03/13/2010 would be fine, as that is a Saturday. 03/12/2010 would return an
error message as it is a Friday.

How would I create a field property for this, or would I use a different
aspect of Access creation?

Private Sub txtSaturday_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
If Not Weekday(Me.txtSaturday) = vbSaturday Then
MsgBox "Not a Saturday!"
Cancel = True
End If
End Sub

Open the table in design view, select the Date/Time field, and set these
properties:
- Validation Rule: ([SatOnly] Mod 7)=0
- Validation Text: Must be a Saturday

Replace the SatOnly with the name of your field.

Might it not be better to have the textbox just adjust itself to the next (or
previous) Saturday instead? You can use DateAdd() in the textbox's afterupdate
event to reset the date:

Private Sub txtSaturday_AfterUpdate()
If Weekday(Me!txtSaturday) vbSaturday Then
Me!txtSaturday = DateAdd("d", 7 - Weekday(Me!txtSaturday))
MsgBox "Adjusted date to Saturday, " & format(Me!txtSaturday, "dd-mmm-yyyy")
End If
End Sub
