    Question VBA If cell does not contain

    Hi all,

    I'm after a line of code which determines whether a cell does not contains the word "Saturday" or "Sunday".

    The code I'd written below doesn't work:

    An example of the format of the cells this macro will run through is as follows: Monday 27th, June 2022. These cells are in column E, hence the 5 in my code

    Thanks!

    Are these dates that have been formatted to look this way or are they text strings?

    Depending on the answer to the above question, you'd need something like:

    Hi Rory, Yes it's formatted as just a string.
    Unfortunately that doesn't work either. Rows with Saturday and Sunday are still being picked up.

    I've attached an Excel with my code, using your solution which doesn't seem to work.
