To retrieve the current month's end day, use the TODAY function in the first input of your EOMONTH formula, so that today's date is used as the start date. You also put 0 in the month argument since you don't want to modify the month in any case. Finally, you need to include the DAY function in the second input of your EOMONTH formula so that it calculates days not months.
The function EOMONTH returns the final day of the month from a specified date. In this case, we utilize the EOMONTH function to return to the previous month's final day. Then we add 1 to get the current month's first day. To utilize the EOMONTH function in the preceding example, enter the formula =EOMONTH (A2,-1)+1 in cell B2. Then copy over the formula down the column.
The EOMONTH function returns the final day of the month for a given date, with or without an offset. The EOMONTH function takes two parameters: The EOMONTH method returns the final day of the month for this date if start date is a date expression that evaluates to a date. Otherwise, it returns the last day of the previous month.
EOMONTH (getdate) returns the last day of the current month because today is the last day of the current month. EOMONTH (getdate - 1) also returns the last day of the current month because yesterday was the last day of the current month.
To calculate the last day of the next month, use EOMONTH (getdate + 1). To check whether an date is the last day of a month, use the DATEADD function instead. For example, DATEADD (day, 1, GETDATE ) returns the first day of the next month.
Last days of months are special cases and cannot be calculated using EOMONTH or DATEADD.
There is no Excel function that calculates the beginning day of the month, but the EOMONTH function does. To discover the start day of a month, subtract one day from the preceding month's last day. For example, to find out how many days are on May 1, deduct one day from April 30.
EOMONTH(date, 0) returns the date corresponding to the end of the previous month. EOMONTH(-1, 0) returns the date one year from today, divided by two every time it changes. EOMONTH(1, 0) returns the current date.
So, the first day of the next month is EOMONTH(today, 0) - 1. This formula returns 24/05/2015.
The "MD" option might provide a negative value, a zero, or an incorrect result. Here's a hack for estimating the number of days remaining after the last completed month: This formula subtracts the first day of the last month (5/1/2016) from the original end date (5/6/2016) in cell E17. Then it multiplies that number by 24 and enters it into cell F17.
This method is based on the fact that the number of days between two dates is equal to the number of days in one year minus the number of days in the other year. Since we know what date was used as the starting point for the calculation (cell E17), we can simply look up the number of days in each year in order to obtain the remaing days.
For example, if you start with a date of 5/6/2016 and use this formula, the result will be -1152. This means that there are 11 months left until your goal date of 5/6/2017.
You can also use this method to find out how many days remain before a specific date. For example, if you want to know how many days are left before 5/6/2017 then enter cell E18 the following formula: =F17-E17. This will return -1151 which is the same result as the first example.
The NETWORKDAYS function in our main formula counts the workdays between the start and finish dates, omitting weekends and holidays. The beginning date is the first day of the month, B3, and the ending date is determined by the EOMONTH function. EOMONTH returns the month's end day. Since we're counting only working days, we need to use the WORKDAY function to exclude non-working days.
We can use this method to count the number of working days in any month. First, we need to determine which months have 30 or more days. Then, we can use an array formula to return the number of working days in those months: =NETWORKDAYSB3;EOMONTH(B3,0)
Excel uses the term "weekday" to describe when a workday begins and ends. A weekday can be one of five values: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. These values represent the first day of the week, which for most countries is Sunday and Saturday, respectively. Weekends are defined as Saturdays and Sundays. So, if you want to know whether it is a weekend or not, you simply need to check the value of WEEKDAY(Date) and act accordingly. If you want to know how many weekends there are in a period, you can use the NUMBEROFWEEKENDSAFEHOLDS function.
