    Try:

    =TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY(),3)
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    thank you !

    will this reference the last monday on any day of the week, the only reason i ask as it look like you are subtracting 3 days from today.

    Try replacing TODAY() in the formula with A1, i.e. this formula in B1

    =A1-WEEKDAY(A1,3)

    and then you can test various dates in A1

    It will always give you the previous Monday, although on a Monday it will show that day's date - if you want the previous Monday in that circumstance try changing to

    =TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY()-2)
    Audere est facere
