Use WEEKDAY(serial_number,return_type)

See Excel Help regarding 'return_type' which defines the start of the week.

To get the right day name with the weekday function, you can include it in an index function:

example:

=INDEX({"So","Mo","Tu","We","Th","Fr","Za"},1,WEEKDAY(TODAY()))

jamjhkang,

If I understand your request correctly you want to know if a certain date is the first, second, third, fourth or fifth of a particular weekday of the month.  The following formula will accomplish the task.  However, you will need to activate the Analysis ToolPak thru the Tools, Add-ins menu option.

=IF(WEEKDAY(B1)=WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(B1,-1)),INT((B1-EOMONTH(B1,-1))/7),INT((B1-EOMONTH(B1,-1))/7)+1)

where B1 is the cell that you entered the date you want to analyze.

Hope this helps.

What do you mean by "because today(7.23) is the 4th monday of this month"

Do you like to have:
- Daynumber of the week,
- Daynumber of the month
- Daynumber of the year
- Weeknumber of the month
- Weeknumber of the year.
- Month number of the year

Tell me, looking at the given comments, it's not very clear.

iamjhkang, how are you?

I know the email notifications were working erratically at best before, but they work great now. If you don't respond within 7 days, I'll be awarding points to cri. Other answers may be valid, but he posted first.
