    Change Weekend Date To The Previous Friday

    Hi All!

    I am trying to provide stats on data for my work - We have entries which sometimes fall on a weekend but these entries need to be reported as a weekday. From my knowledge the WEEKDAY function will report the following weekday from the weekend day. What I need is for a function to report the previous Friday.

    Example:

    If the entry falls on Saturday 27th October it needs to report as Friday 26th October. The same would apply for all Sundays.

    If you could help I would be very grateful as this one is drying me a tiny bit mental :D Thanks in advance!

    Try

    =IF(WEEKDAY(A1)=7,A1-1,IF(WEEKDAY(A1)=1,A1-2,A1))

    hi MarkMcCann, welcome to the forum. maybe something like:
    =IF(WEEKDAY(A1,2)>=6,A1+5-WEEKDAY(A1,2),A1)

    You could use WORKDAY function like this

    =WORKDAY(A1+1,-1)
