Hi Doublewitt,

I entered date's in the range A1:A30 starting with 15-9-2014 and ending with 14-10-2014.

The following formula gives me 8 as a result (Monday of current week):
=COUNTIF(A1:A30,"<=22-9-2014")

This formula gives me 15 as a result (Monday of next week):
=COUNTIF(A1:A30,"<=29-9-2014")

Best regards,
Trowa

thanks for the effort but that's not quite what I need - perhaps I need to explain better. Can we create a formula based on the year's current week number in another cell? In other words, count total number of cells containing monday's date within current week 39.

Hi Doublewitt,

So you want to count the number of times 22-9-2014 occurs in a range?:
=COUNTIF(A1:A30,"=22-9-2014")

or you can use an additional column to check if the date matches your criteria with this formula:
=IF(AND(WEEKNUM(A1)=39,WEEKDAY(A1)=2),1,0)
If the date is a Monday in week 39 then the cell shows a 1, you can then add all the 1's to get a total.

Is this what you were looking for?

Best regards,
Trowa
