Can excel determine the day of the week? For example, if cell a1 = 3/27/2009, Is there a formula i could put in b1 that would = Friday.

### Excel Facts

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
Here's one way:

=TEXT(A1,"dddd")

HTH,

=WEEKDAY(A1,1). Custom format the cell as "dddd", no quotes
lenze

If you want it to appear in Cell A1 along with date , put in date and format as
Custom/[\$-C09]dddd, mm/d/ yy

Pedro

Similar to lenze's idea.
In B1 put =A1
and format B1 as Custom Format "dddd"
