I'm using the weeknum function to calculate the weeknumber based on a cell that contains a modified date of my records. The problem I have is that I am using a pivot table to chart this data and it plots the weeknum as a number on the x axis. I would like to somehow transform this number into the date that it represents, then use it in a pivot table. Any idea how to do something like this?

Another problem I have is that we are nearing the end of the year and I don't know what to do once the new year hits and the weeknum becomes 1 again at the beginning of the year. Graphing data by week is a high priority here which is why I had to identify and use the weeknum.

thank you

You can't make the graph go from week 52 (or 53) to 1?

Yes, but I'm just confused about how my chart will know to graph that new week number 1 from the previous week number one. So Jan 1, 2005 vs. Jan 1, 2006
