    Macro to change a row of dates in line with current month and year

    Hello. Iíve got a row of dates and a row of day names (month) long.
    Iíd like a macro that would:
    1. check the month and year of the current date and then accordinly change the date row
    2. it would check the day name (start of the month) and accordingly change the day name row.

    Iíve attached an example workbook with source and target sheet.

    Thanks

    Hi widodude,

    I think you want a Weekday in a Choose function.
    See the attached.

    That's pretty cool function thanks for that. I'm not sure I'll add another post as it's part of the problem. So i've got some code (two functions I found and modified from MSDN) and some hashed up code I wrote up. It basically cycles through a range of cells and enters incremental dates - however it doesn't stop at the End of the Month Date i think my loop needs some work.

    Hi widodude,
    There are lots of ways to put those dates across the top of your sheet. This one uses the date in B3 and fills them in to the end of the month. I find that VBA doesn't use the same Date formula syntax as Excel so I set formulas in the Excel cells to get what I wanted and then used those numbers in the VBA.

    I'm sure one of the good gurus could make this code in about half the lines. Watersev could do it in about 3 using his codeing style.

    See the attached with the code:
    BTW - I hate dates across the top as column heads. I think you will be much better off putting all the dates in a single column. This way Excel can treat your data as a List/Table and do a lot more things with it. Perhaps if you show a real example of what you are intending, we can fix your data structure so it does a lot more.

    Hi there thanks for that. I modified the code I had originally as such:

    I do like your minimised code use. i'm obviously rubbish at that
