I haven´t found much searching on the net.

The case: One cell is filled out in date-format by the TODAY() function. How can I update another cell with the actual day as string? I´ve seen older examples by using CHOOSE func, or the the WEEKDAY() func formatted. Nothing seems to work for me.

  • What do you mean by "nothing seems to work for me"? Do you get an error message? – Rubén Jan 29 '18 at 15:23
  • What have you tried that doesn't work? If you don't mention that, you're likely to get answers that suggest exactly that. – ale Jan 29 '18 at 15:52

    Like the provided answer down here, as read on another site, that formel gives me an parser error. – CARTOS Jan 29 '18 at 18:16

    Are you using a language other than English? If so, then you need to use semi-colons instead of commas in your functions. That may be the source of your error. – ale Jan 30 '18 at 14:33
  • English is default. Its fixed. – CARTOS Feb 3 '18 at 8:04

=TEXT(A1;"dddd")

where A1 is the cell with the date.

This solution works for me:

=CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(A1),"Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday")

where A1 is the cell with the date.
