Something like the following snippet?

Chris
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng As Range
Dim cel As Range
 
    Set rng = Intersect(Target, Me.Range("a:A"))
    If rng Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    
    For Each cel In rng
        If cel <> "" Then cel.Offset(0, 1) = DateAdd("d", -(Weekday(Date, vbTuesday)), Date)
    Next
    
End Sub

To Create a macro:
------------------

Alt + F11 to open the macro editor
  For workbook event handlers:
     In the project tree select as appropriate:
      EXCEL      : thisworkbook
     In the workpane select as appropriate:
      EXCEL      : WorkBook
     In the workpane select the required 'event', (i.e. 'Change').
     Insert the required macro(s) into the selected subroutine.
Close the Visual Basic Editor.

Check Security as appropriate:
------------------------------

In the application select Tools | Macro | Security
Select Medium
Select OK

Is there a way to add this into this file. Basically when a date is entered into column A of 'New Seet' it should then automatically fill out column B with the week commencing that will then fill out column C with the week number. I'm just having trouble inserting the code in the right place....

I have posted a change to your change event handler as follows in teh snippet below:

rCell.Offset(0, 1) = DateAdd("d", -(Weekday(rCell, vbTuesday)), rCell)

Chris
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
On Error GoTo e:
If Intersect(Target, Columns("A")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Dim rCell As Range
Set rCell = Intersect(Target, Columns("A"))
If rCell.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
rCell.Offset(0, 1) = DateAdd("d", -(Weekday(rCell, vbTuesday)), rCell)
Sheets("Template").Select
Sheets("Template").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
ActiveSheet.Name = rCell
ActiveSheet.Range("i3").Value = rCell
On Error GoTo e:
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Exit Sub
e:
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
