I am looking for a formula that can look at a cell value that contains a date and return the first Monday to occur after that date.

Examples (MM/dd/yyyy format):

10/22/2013 (Tuesday) would return 10/28/2013 (Monday)
10/28/2013 (Monday)  would return 10/28/2013 (Monday)

Let B2 the cell containing the date.

=IF(WEEKDAY(B2)=2, B2, IF(WEEKDAY(B2)=1,B2+1, B2+9-WEEKDAY(B2)))


=IF(WEEKDAY(B2,3)=0, B2, B2+7-WEEKDAY(B2,3))
