# Formula - OR and dates

#### Shinano

##### Board Regular
I have the following formula:

=IF((OR(B2="Sunday",B2="Saturday")),0,1)

However, I can not make it work properly.

The cell B2 is a date formatted: mmmm to have it render the day of the week. B2 is based on A2, which is just a regular date formatted: mmmm d, yyyy.

How do I make the above formula recognize that which day of the week is rendered in B2 correctly?

Thanks a lot.

### Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},\$Z\$1:\$Z\$99,\$Y\$1:\$Y\$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.
Hello,

Look at WEEKDAY

i.e.

=IF(WEEKDAY(B2,2)>5,0,1)

You could use:

=IF(OR(TEXT(A2,"dddd")={"Sunday","Saturday"}),0,1)

Richard

Or

=(WEEKDAY(B2,2)<6)+0

Hope this helps!
