I have the Day Monday in cell A1. What formula could I use to to increase the day by 1 for b1,c1,d1,e1 ETC. So for example if I typed tuesday in A1 automatically Wednesday would appear in B1

Excel cannot interpret "Monday" without a macro.
Try this.
In cell A1 enter a date known to be a Monday eg. 6/8/2007
in cell B1 enter formula =A1+1
copy cell B1 across.
Format the cells "dddd"

TOOLS/OPTIONS/CUSTOM LISTS
Personally I find it easier to use 'Tools\Options\Custom Lists'. I think you will find the following there already, if not ..type days separated with commas. eg. Monday, Tuesday,...
I also have lists Mon, Tues, .... and January, February, .... etc. (Excel put them there)

Just need to enter one in a cell and drag the bottom right corner across.
Even though the months are listed in full, Excel is smart enough to interpret 'Jan' and will continue from whatever item you start with.

Format the cells in advance as “dddd” then type in Monday and then drag the little black square in the bottom right of the cell and it will auto fill the remaining cells with sequential days.

There is no need for custom lists or "known" dates.

Try: (Not my formula but cant remember where i got it from)

=IF(A1="","",TEXT(MATCH(LEFT(A1,2),{"Mo","Tu","We","Th","Fr","Sa","Su"},0)+DATE(4,1,4),"dddd"))

in cell B1 and copied across C1 etc

If you type Mo or Mon or Monday in A1 b1 will be tuesday etc...

same for all the days

You could use:

=INDEX({"Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday","Sunday"},MATCH(A1,{"Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday"},FALSE))
