    Hello again,

    I have a question...is there a built-in function in Excel or a macro that can automatically determine the date of the most recent saturday?

    For instance, say I run a particular report this coming Monday - April 1st(not always on monday, could be any day of the week). There is a header in the spreadsheet that says "Data as of MM/DD/YYYY" where the date is the most recent saturday relative to that day (april 1st)..where the date would display as "03/30/2002". Is there a way to dynaically determine this date.. regardless of what day the report is run, relative to the previous saturday?

    Thanks in advance,

    Rob

    Try one of the following; edit references and text as necessary.

    ="Data as of : "&TEXT(TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY(),3)-2,"ddd dd mmm yyyy")

    ="Data as of : "&TEXT(A50-WEEKDAY(A50,3)-2,"ddd dd mmm yyyy")
