    I am sure this has been asked before, but the search function is not working and I am just about blind from searching through the previous pages..... sorry.

    I would like to know how to convert the date to the correct day of the week. For example, in column A I have 4/1/02. I would like for column B to show "Monday". Is there a formula (or a button/filter/something) to do this?

    Thanks in advance for the assistance.

    If you use the formula
    =DAY(A1)
    and then custom format the cell as "dddd"
    Should do the trick.

    Actually that doesn't work does it!

    Try copying your cells from column A to Column B and then reformatting them as "dddd" instead.

    Use =TEXT(A1,"dddd") in B1

    Or...

    just enter =A1 in B1 and format as dddd
