Hello.


In column A (A1:A600) I have dates and time in format dd.mm.yyyy - hh:mm (ex. 04.10.2019 - 20:00 , there is one space between dd.mm.yyyy and '-' and one space between '-' and hh:mm). All those cells in column A are text cells.

I need formula to convert those "dates" into weekday name. Coverted results should be in column B (B1:B600).




example.


AB
104.10.2019 - 20:00Fri
204.10.2019 - 22:30Fri
305.10.2019 - 16:00Sat
406.10.2019 - 12:45Sun
5
07.10.2019 - 18:00​
Mon

See if this works:

=TEXT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","/")," -",""),"ddd")

When I use your formula on 04.10.2019 - 20:00 instead of 'Fri' I got 'Wed'... :confused:

Your local settings are MM/DD/YYYY? You should have said seen as your data is DD/MM/YYYY

Try this:

=TEXT(DATE(MID(A1,7,4),MID(A1,4,2),LEFT(A1,2)),"ddd")
