How to Find the First Monday of any Month 

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I'll show you how to find the first Monday of any given month. You can then, of course, very easily use the same technique to find the first of any given weekday in that month (Monday - Sunday).

Alissa from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (a Silver Member) asks: I need to be able to find the first Monday of any given month to determine what the first work day is. How can I do this in Access?


Silver Members and up get access to an Extended Cut of this video. Members will learn how to calculate the Nth weekday of any given month, such as the second Monday or the fourth Saturday.

Teeka from Shelby, North Carolina (a Platinum Member) asks: Is there any way you can find the Nth weekday of any given month, for example the 1st Monday in June 2021, or the 4th Wednesday in August 1999?

Silver Members and up get access to an Extended Cut of this video. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!

FirstDayOfMonth = DateSerial(Year(DateEntered), Month(DateEntered), 1)
NextMonday = FirstDayOfMonth + 8 - Weekday(FirstDayOfMonth , vbMonday or 2)

This is what I use.  you just change the vbMonday to find what ever day you need. Then for the 2 Monday just add 7 then 14  and so on. Read More...

Just thought about it but for the weeks you could just use the dateAdd function instead just my 2 cents :)
