In VBA how can I get the day name when specifying a date.
So how can I extract the day name from now()
e.g. Monday etc.

Thanks

You can use the Weekday function to get the day of the week from a date, and then use the WeekdayName function to get the name.

Just to be clear for the OP , this is what Shaun Kline suggested:
WeekdayName(Weekday(Now()))

That won't work in an international environment, except if extended:

    strWeekday = WeekdayName(Weekday(Date), , vbSunday)

So Format is much simpler and easier:

    strWeekday = Format(Date, "dddd")
