How can I modify Excel List to get day names returned by TEXT(TODAY()) e.g. in other languages instead of English ?

You would have to put in the LanguageID into the format string:

Here you go:

=TEXT(TODAY(),"[$-407]DDDD")

this should result in

Donnerstag, Freitag, etc ...

And because I am alway unsure about english formulars, here is my original for german users:

=TEXT(HEUTE());"[$-409]TTTT")

this results in the current day in english instead of german language
