Does anyone know how I can obtain the actual day from a date in Excel. I want to create an ongoing list of days from a calendar within Excel.

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.

Format the cell as "dddd" to get the day.

Or if you want to leave the original date and show the day in another cell, if your date is in A1, then use this formula:

=TEXT(A1,"dddd")

Or to just retrieve the integer value of the date...
Code:
=Day(A1)
