Hello,

I have a record with dates that included the weekends in there.

I would like to find and replace the weekend days to next business day.

 1-Jun-2014 1-Feb-2015 1-Jun-2014 1-Nov-2014 1-Mar-2015 1-Nov-2015 1-Nov-2015 1-Nov-2015 1-Nov-2015 1-Oct-2016 1-Oct-2016 1-Oct-2016 1-Oct-2016 1-May-2016 1-Oct-2017 18-Nov-2018 31-Mar-2019 31-Mar-2019 31-Mar-2019 31-Mar-2019 30-Jun-2019 15-Jan-2017 15-Jan-2017 15-May-2016 15-Dec-2018 15-Sep-2018 15-Dec-2018 15-Jun-2019 15-Jun-2019 1-Mar-2014 1-Feb-2015 1-May-2016 1-Oct-2016 1-Jul-2017 1-Apr-2018 1-Apr-2018 1-Sep-2018 1-Apr-2018 1-Jul-2018 1-Sep-2018 1-Sep-2018 1-Sep-2018 1-Jun-2019 1-Jun-2019 1-Jun-2019

### Excel Facts

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

For a date in cell A1, try this formula:
Code:
``=IF(WEEKDAY(A1,11)<6,A1,WORKDAY(A1-1,1))``
If the day in cell A1 is a weekday, it will return that day. Otherwise, it will return the following Monday.

Thank you!

The formula works great. However my date format is like this:
 20160407 20161017 20151217 20161201 20170418 20180122 20170418 20171208

That looks significantly different from your original post.

It does not matter what your date format is, as long as the entries are actually dates, and not text or numbers.
Can you confirm? An easy way to check is to right-click on any cell, select "Format Cells...", go to the Number tab and see which number format is being applied.

If you see those values that you posted and your format is "General" or "Text", you do not have valid date entries.
If they are not entered as actual dates, you will need to convert them to dates. One way is to use Text to Columns.
