Get the First Monday of a Given Year


To calculate the first Monday of the year or given any date, you can create a new complex formula based on the DATE function, the YEAR function and the WEEKDAY function.

Assuming that you have a date list in the range of cells B1:B4 in your current worksheet, and if you want to get the first Monday for the year date in each cell, and you can write down one formula as below:

=DATE(YEAR(B1),1,8)-WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(B1),1,6))

get first monday of the year1

Type this formula into the formula box of a blank cell such as: C1, then press Enter key in your keyboard, and drag the AutoFill Handler over other cells to apply this formula.

You can also use another formula based on the DATE function, the CHOOSE function and the WEEKDAY function to create the same result. Like this:

=DATE(B1,1,1)+CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(DATE(B1,1,1),2),0,6,5,4,3,2,1)
