Hello,

I would like to return the 3rd Sunday of the month.  
I do not have a helper cell and therefore would need to have Date() in the formula and not ref a cell.

thank you

Hi,

pls try
=DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),1)+1-WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),1))+(3-(1>=WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),1))))*7

or maybe
=EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)+1+1-WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)+1)+(3-(1>=WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)+1)))*7

Even shorter:

=CEILING(EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)+1,7)+15

EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)+1   returns first day of the month

CEILING(Date,7)  rounds a date up to the following Saturday.  Adding 1 would give first Sunday therefore adding 15 gives third Sunday.

You can you the, DATE, MONTH WEEKDAY functionalities in Excel

Put the starting date in cell A1 and enter the fomular below into cell B1

=DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1),1+7*3)-WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1),8-1))

If you have 01/10/16 in cell A1, then in Cell B1 you will have 16/10/16

You can copy the formula for all other months.

@Emmanuel Adebayo

although, the OP has already found a solution and accepted Rgonzo's answer.

i am wondering how the solution you posted is different than the one i provided. :)

noting that OP mentioned not using helper cell.

@ProfessorJimJam, I opened the question when no one has responded and I was sidetracked by another assignment, so by the time I responded many experts has contributed but I did not check the page not until I clicked on submit, never mind, he has awarded the score already.
