works fine for me...is the [Start Time] formatted as date?

I've tried the following:

24 March 2012      Sat, 24 March
24/03/2012 00:00      Sat, 24 March
24/03/2012      Sat, 24 March

25 March 2012      Sun, 25 March
25/03/2012 00:00      Sun, 25 March
25/03/2012      Sun, 25 March

26 March 2012      Mon, 26 March
26/03/2012 00:00      Mon, 26 March
26/03/2012      Mon, 26 March

Hi,
Use excel functions, e.g. if you have the datetime column use the following code to return date as string
column name= 'Date of Birth'
calculated column formula = YEAR(DateOfBirth)&"-"&DAY(DateOfBirth)&"-"&MONTH(DateOfBirth)

you need to do this:


=TEXT(IF(TEXT([End Time]-[Start Time],"h:mm")="23:59",[Start Time]+1,[Start Time]),"ddd, dd MMMM")
