    Rounding a given date up to a specific day of the week

    Hi all,

    I have just joined this forum looking for help with a formula in Excel 2010:

    I have a list of dates that I need to round up to the Friday that follows that particular date.

    i.e. If the given date is Friday 23rd November - Thursday 29th November inclusive, the cell should then show Friday 30th November in each case.

    Example 1 - In cell A2 I have Fri 23rd Nov, so in B2 I would then require Fri 30th Nov (I'm using UK short date format, i.e. 30/11/2012)
    Example 2 - In cell A3 I have Thu 29th Nov, so in B3 I would then require Fri 30th Nov (30/11/2012)
    Example 3 - In cell A4 I have Fri 30th Nov, so in B4 I would then require Fri 7th December (07/12/2012)

    I would like a formula that would take care of this for a list of dates that I am using, thus rounding the date up to the beginning of a Friday-Thursday working week (bizarre, I know, but that is the requirement)

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you

    This formula will also give you the same result

    =A1+8-WEEKDAY(A1+2)
