I am trying to do the CONCATENATE function and the function of =A3-WEEKDAY(A3)+7 for the first of the week and =A3-WEEKDAY(A3)+1 for the last of day of the week. Thanks for your help

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Hello,
Assuming the date you want (5/27/2015) is in cell A1, week starts on Sunday, and you don't want 05/24, the following formula should work:

="Week of "&TEXT(\$A\$1-WEEKDAY(\$A\$1)+1,"m/d")&" - "&TEXT(\$A\$1-WEEKDAY(\$A\$1)+7,"m/d")
