Microsoft Excel – getting Monday and Wednesday dates into a workbook

I was training the other day and demonstrating sequences with dates, working days etc. Someone asked me whether they could quickly put all Monday and Wednesday dates into a worksheet as these were the days maintenance staff were on site.

Enter the first two Monday and Wednesday dates.

First Monday and Wednesday

Select both cells and then use the fill handle to drag down.

Copied down series

From the Auto Fill Options button, select Fill Weekdays.

Fill Weekdays

You will then have all Mondays and Wednesdays!

Monday Wednesday  dates
