You can use the following basic syntax to get the date from a week number in Excel:

=DATE(B2,1,1)+(A2-1)*7-(WEEKDAY(DATE(B2,1,1)))+1

This particular formula makes the following assumptions:

- Cell
**A2**contains the week number - Cell
**B2**contains the year - The first day of the week is considered to be Sunday

This formula will return the date of the Sunday for a particular week.

If you’d instead like to return the Monday, replace the **1** at the end of the formula with **2**.

If you’d instead like to return the Tuesday, replace the **1** at the end of the formula with **3**.

And so on.

The following example shows how to use this formula in practice.

**Example: Get Date from Week Number in Excel**

Suppose we would like to get the date of the Sunday for week 14 in the year 2023.

We can type the following formula into cell **C2** in Excel to calculate this date:

=DATE(B2,1,1)+(A2-1)*7-(WEEKDAY(DATE(B2,1,1)))+1

The following screenshot shows how to use this formula in practice:

The start day of week 14 in 2023 is** 4/2/2023**.

**Note**: If the formula returns a number instead, make sure to change the cell format to **Date**.

If you would instead like to assume that the week starts on a Monday, you can use the following formula to get the date from the week number:

=DATE(B2,1,1)+(A2-1)*7-(WEEKDAY(DATE(B2,1,1)))+2

The following screenshot shows how to use this formula in practice:

The start day of week 14 in 2023 (assuming that weeks start on a Monday) is** 4/3/2023**.
