I need to finish a project I'm working on tonight so any help is appreciated.

I'm looking for a formula that will look at today's date and place the previous Monday's date in the cell. If it's Monday, it should recognize that as well.

Example, today is Monday the 17th. The formula should return 1/17/04.
Example 2, when it's Friday the 21st. The formula should return 1/17/04.

I have no clue how to do this. I was thinking using an IF statement combined with =today() somehow.
 

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.

Try the following...

=TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY(),3)

Hope this helps!
