    Date pattern help: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday

    Is there a way to do a series fill according to this date pattern:
    Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday
    I'm interested in the date format only 10/5/20

    Example
    For the whole month of October
    Saturday 10/3/20
    Tuesday 10/6/20
    Wednesday 10/7/20
    Friday 10/9/20
    ...

    Thanks in advance

    if A1 stored 10/3 then below would be one option

    A2: =WORKDAY.INTL(A1,1,"1001001")
    copied down
    (the 1s in the above binary sequence denote the week days to skip, mon thru sun)

    Thanks so very much XLent. That is excellent.

    I don't think it is possible but I'm asking anyways. Can the formula specify to keep the exact format as what was entered in cell A1. The cell in A1 is in date format 10/5/20, Arial 14 font, and with a border. The formula strips the format, font, and the border.

    Also, when I sort the dates to newest to oldest I get REF!.

    Thanks again.

    formatting is independent so, copy the format from your original cell and paste (format) over the remainder.

    re: sorting - the formula is designed to look at the cell above so if you wish to store in the opposite order you would need to either
    a) modify the "prior" cell (look below rather than above)
    or
    b) work from last day back by subtracting, rather than adding, one day (from date in cell above) -- i.e. 2nd parameter would be -1 rather than 1

    Does the form in a1 change much?

    If it does you could use vba to do this but it seems overkill. Why not click on a1 press format painter, click on a2, write the formula and copy down?

    I prefer not to use VBA. I will use the format painter.
    Thanks again.

    If C1 store the first day of the month,i.e, "01-Oct-2020"

    If A2 is expected to be the closest Saturday:

    A2:
