Excel VBA: Date range formula

Hello Experts,

Is there a formula in excel that would provide a weekly range for the previous week (Monday to Sunday).  So example if I was to use the formula now, it will show
10-06-14 to 10-12-14


it should look the same as the above format.

Much appreciated it!

To calculate last week:

Dim dtBeg as date, dtEnd as date

dtBeg = DateAdd("ww", -1, Date - Weekday(Date) + 1)
dtEnd = DateAdd("ww", -1, Date - Weekday(Date) + 7)

msgbox dtBeg & " - " & dtEnd

After you've calculated last week's date range, you can then format it to the way you want:

msgbox "beg date: " & format(dtBeg, "MM-dd-yy") & vbcrLf
               "end date: " & format(dtEnd, "MM-dd-yy")

@Maliki Hassani,
You ask for a formula but you have added VBA Basic programming as a topic. Be aware that VBA and formulae are different things. Formulae will normally give automatic updates in the sheet. VBA macros need to be run specifically and could take considerably more time to process,

Great point. I will use a formula rather than a macro.

A formula could be like this

=TEXT(TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY(),2)-6,"mm-dd-yy")&" to "&TEXT(TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY(),2),"mm-dd-yy")
