SSRS Have the day of the week on your report

Hello Experts Exchange
I want to be able to have the week day on my report, I found a bit of code on the web which is this.

=WeekDayName ( WeekDay( Today() ) )

When I run the report it says Saturday, but it is a Friday.  

How do I get the report to show the correct day?

Did you check with the System Date Time settings?

The code you are using will work.

From what I remember about that function is that it uses the system first-day-of-week setting, if you don't specify the value.  I haven't seen that function return and invalid value, but my first inclination is that you might want to try to pass that value explicitly.

In VBA it is the below.
=WeekdayName(Weekday(Now()), False, vbSunday)
