I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Maybe something like this...

Function getLastFriday(dt As Date) As Date
Dim wkDay As Integer
wkDay = Weekday(dt, vbFriday)
getLastFriday = dt - (wkDay - 1)
End Function

Open in new window


Then you can call this function like below...

Sub Test()
MsgBox getLastFriday(DateValue("3/14/2018")) 'Last Friday before 3/14/2018
MsgBox getLastFriday(Date)      'Last Friday from today
End Sub

If you mean the last Friday of the month, then this is a solution:
Public Function GetLastFriday(ByVal parmAnyDate As Date) As Date
    'returns the date of the last Friday in the same month as parmAnyDate
    Dim dtLastDOM As Date
    
    'Initialize to last day of the month
    dtLastDOM = DateSerial(Year(parmAnyDate), Month(parmAnyDate) + 1, 0)
    'Decrement until Friday
    Do Until Weekday(dtLastDOM) = vbFriday
        dtLastDOM = dtLastDOM - 1
    Loop
    GetLastFriday = dtLastDOM
End Function

Here's a no-looping version:
Public Function GetLastFridayNoLoop(ByVal parmAnyDate As Date) As Date
    'returns the date of the last Friday in the same month as parmAnyDate
    Dim dtLastDOM As Date
    Dim lngWeekdayDiff As Long
    
    'Initialize to last day of the month
    dtLastDOM = DateSerial(Year(parmAnyDate), Month(parmAnyDate) + 1, 0)
    'calculate days difference to Friday
    lngWeekdayDiff = Weekday(dtLastDOM) - vbFriday
    
    If Sgn(lngWeekdayDiff) = -1 Then    'adjust if negative
        dtLastDOM = dtLastDOM - lngWeekdayDiff - 7
    Else
        dtLastDOM = dtLastDOM - lngWeekdayDiff
    End If
    GetLastFridayNoLoop = dtLastDOM
End Function

If you want to find the last Friday of the month, you may also try this...

Function getLastFriday(dt As Date) As Date
getLastFriday = DateSerial(Year(dt), Month(dt) + 1, 1) - Weekday(DateSerial(Year(dt), Month(dt) + 1, 1) - 6)
End Function

Open in new window


Sub Test()
MsgBox getLastFriday(Date)
End Sub

Thank you.

Subodh, the function works in every day except on Fridays. If today's date is Friday, it does not show last Friday it shows today's.

You're welcome!

Please try this...

Function getLastFriday(dt As Date) As Date
Dim wkDay As Integer
If Weekday(dt) = 6 Then dt = dt - 1
wkDay = Weekday(dt, vbFriday)
getLastFriday = dt - (wkDay - 1)
End Function
