Assuming that the given date is in the Cell A1 If you want to know the serial number for the given date for the year use =A1+1-DATE(TEXT(A1,"yyyy"),1,1) If you want to know the weekday name then simply use =TEXT(A1,"DDD") for 3 letter days e.g. Sun, Mon, etc. OR use =TEXT(A1,"DDDD") full days e.g. Sunday, Monday, etc. Please check the attached image for details.

In those scenarios use =DATEVALUE(A1) in place of just A1 in the formulas above. read less
