Based on Today's date, what will the date be for the upcoming Friday? As Friday comes and goes, the date of the upcoming Friday should be diplayed based on the current date.

Here is one of many ways:

=CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(TODAY()),TODAY()+5,TODAY()+4,TODAY()+3,TODAY()+2,TODAY()+1,TODAY(),TODAY()+7,TODAY()+6)

Note that if today is a Friday, this returns Today's date. If you want the next Friday, add 8 to the Argument ,TODAY(),(3rd from last)

I think this also works (seems to test out)

=TODAY()+IF(WEEKDAY(TODAY())<6,6,13)-WEEKDAY(TODAY())

(If today is Friday it kicks out next Friday's date)

Lots of different ways to tackle this -
If today's date is in cell A1:

=IF(WEEKDAY(A1,1)>=6,A1+((7-WEEKDAY(A1,1)))+7,A1+((7-WEEKDAY(A1,1))))

will return the date for the next upcoming friday.

=IF(WEEKDAY(A1,1)>=6,A1+((6-WEEKDAY(A1,1)))+6,A1+((6-WEEKDAY(A1,1))))
