Hiya,

I have a range of dates ( DD/MM/YY ), is it possible in the adjacent colum, show the DAY name eg :-

A1 = 27/01/04 - B1 Would = THUR


is this possible?

Cheers
 

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

If you want THU, try = text(A1,"ddd")

For THUR, you'd need something like =UPPER(LEFT(TEXT(A1,"dddd"),4))
