Hi All, my brain is feeling a little scrambled this afternoon and I just cannot think how to use an Excel formula to find the 15th of every month. I have a Spreadsheet which contains the year in the following format dd/mm/yyyy in cell H2. What I am trying to do is create a virtual calendar with tasks on certain days, but the 15th of the month (providing it is not a weekend) when payments go into the bank however at the moment it eludes me as to how to do this. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Please ignore the Excluding Weekends in the Title (I cannot get the right).

What do you mean by find the 15th?
Do you just want a formula to return the date of the 15th of whatever data is in H2?
