produce day of week from date

produce day of week from date

(OP)
is their a function that I can use to get the day of week based on a date?

Example:

I input 6/29/2006 and it would say Thursday

NameOfFunction(6/29/2006)

If not how would I go about creating such a function??

RE: produce day of week from date

(OP)
I tried

CODE

weekday(6/29/2006)


but it produced 7 which stands for Saturday

but when I put

CODE

weekday(6/29/2006,vbTuesday)

it gives me 5 which stands for Thursday

what can I put in the second argument that it automatically gives be the correct day without editing the code each year?

PHV thanks that worked we posted at the same time thus I missed your idea

RE: produce day of week from date

The syntax

CODE

weekday(6/29/2006,vbTuesday)
Tells the system that Tuesday is the first day of the week so the numbering then becomes

1 = Tuesday
2 = Wednesday
:
5 = Saturday
6 = Sunday
7 = Monday

The default for the second argument is vbSunday with the numbering

0 = Sunday
1 = Monday
:
6 = Friday
7 = Saturday

Unless you have good reason for changing the day on which a week starts, just omit the second argument.
