Google Sheets: How to Get Date from Week Number


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

=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.
