I'm using Excel 2010.

If I have TODAY() function on a cell (cell2), it gives me this: 12/26/2012. I want to get Monday's date based on cell2 date. In other words, in want this: 12/24/2012.

How can I do that?

This should do it (although I don't have Excel handy so taking it from memory)

=A1-WEEKDAY(A1, 3)

(where A1 is the cell containing the date)

Where A1 is today's date. This formula will return the Monday date of the week today() is in.



if you want the previous Monday's date.
