Do you mean the data in the "Bill" table has a TIMESTAMP and you want only those records returned with the TIMESTAMP of Monday and Thursday? Or do you only want to run the query itself on Monday and Thursday?

Have a look at the MySQL DAYOFWEEK [dev.mysql.com] function on the Date and Time Functions manual page. That should get you started. If you have difficulty constructing the rest of the query or run into other problems just post back here again.

$sql = "SELECT * FROM Bill WHERE DAYOFWEEK(yourDateColumn) IN (2,5)";

Sunday is 1, Monday is 2, etc. according to the manual page.
