I'm having a tough time getting this to work.

I have several cells in a row that I'd like to have a certain format IF the WEEKDAY of the cell in column A = 1 (SUNDAY).

How can I create a true/false formula that will work with Conditional Formatting?
 

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

If A houses true dates, then I think you can use:

=WEEKDAY($A1)=1

I must have tried every other possible variation on that theme! I can't believe I missed it. How simple.

Thanks very much!
