Using formula - Pick first day of the week

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

For example, today is 11/15, and first of the day (Monday) of this week is 11/13. How can I pick up 11/13? 

Thanks for your advice!

    Hello ysuzuki!

    To write a formula that takes a date and then displays date of the Monday of that week, you can take advantage of the WEEKDAY() function which returns a number representing the day of the week, 1-7, where Sunday equals 1. 

    If you have a sheet where the date is in a column called Date and the formula is in a column called Monday, use the following formula:

    =Date1 - (WEEKDAY(Date1) - 2)
