I tried



but it produced 7 which stands for Saturday

but when I put



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?

The syntax


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.
