How to get around using the  'WeekDayName' function in VB 5.0?

I'm currently using VB 5.0 and need to extract the weekdayname from a Now() using 'Format'. I need just the name of the weekday, e.g. Wednesday, Thursday. And then how to display a older weekday name something like:


'Pseudo code below
TodayIS = Now()
NameOfDay = Format(TodayIS, weekdayname) - 2  ' Would give you Saturday since today 04/05/2004 is Monday

Any Ideas??

Hi rkckjk,

Format(Now(),"dddd")

Should do it.

Likewise:

Format(DateAdd("d",-2,Now()),"dddd")

For two days ago.
