Returns a Variant (Integer) containing a whole number representing the day of the week.
Weekday(date, [ firstdayofweek ])
The Weekday function syntax has these named arguments:
|date||Required. Variant, numeric expression, string expression, or any combination, that can represent a date. If date contains Null, Null is returned.|
|firstdayofweek||Optional. A constant that specifies the first day of the week. If not specified, vbSunday is assumed.|
The firstdayofweek argument has these settings:
|vbUseSystem||0||Use the NLS API setting.|
The Weekday function can return any of these values:
If the Calendar property setting is Gregorian, the returned integer represents the Gregorian day of the week for the date argument.
If the calendar is Hijri, the returned integer represents the Hijri day of the week for the date argument. For Hijri dates, the argument number is any numeric expression that can represent a date and/or time from 1/1/100 (Gregorian Aug 2, 718) through 4/3/9666 (Gregorian Dec 31, 9999).
This example uses the Weekday function to obtain the day of the week from a specified date.
Dim MyDate, MyWeekDay MyDate = #February 12, 1969# ' Assign a date. MyWeekDay = Weekday(MyDate) ' MyWeekDay contains 4 because ' MyDate represents a Wednesday.
