Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video WEEKDAY: Determining the day of the week, part of Working with Dates and Times in Excel 2010.
It's not always an obvious thing to do, but being able to determine day of the…week for a given date could be some good valuable information.…For example, you've recorded some sales here on different dates in the…first part of 2010.…You're a little bit curious as to how the operation works.…You've had some ups and downs with your sales force.…You're trying to figure out which day of the week these particular sales occurred on.…So on Cell B2 here, we're simply going to enter the formula =WEEKDAY.…Now you can by formatting have the day of the week actually appear in Column A,…but sometimes you really want to isolate this information in a separate…column in adjacent cells.…
So the WEEKDAY of this particular sales date is 6.…Six? The numbering scheme is 1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday etcetera, therefore 6 is Friday.…You can certainly live with this, and I will double-click to copy down the…column kind of quickly. But I think for many of us we would like to see the day…of the week actually spelled out or at least abbreviated.…
