    Hi @Jo Pearson

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this. (change the column name if needed)

    IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 1, "Sunday", 
    IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 2, "Monday", 
    IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 3, "Tuesday", 
    IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 4, "Wednesday", 
    IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 5, "Thursday", 
    IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 6, "Friday", 
    IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 7, "Saturday"))))))), "")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Hi @Jo Pearson,

    as André already posted an example of the usage where your dates can be found in a column named "date" and the WEEKDAY formula lives in another column to show the day of the week, maybe you could post a screenshot so we can see?



    PS: André also incorporated an IFERROR function in his example to cater for empty cells in the "date" column :-)
