Using the DAY Function In Excel To Determine the Day of the Month

In Excel, you can use the DAY function to determine the day of the month based on a given date. The syntax of the DAY function is as follows:


=DAY(serial_number)

Where "serial_number" is the date that you want to find the day of the month for. Here's an example:

Let's say you have a date in cell A1, and you want to find the day of the month for that date. You can use the following formula in cell B1:


=DAY(A1)

Excel will then return the day of the month for the date in cell A1. For example, if cell A1 contains the date "4/28/2023", the formula in cell B1 will return "28".

Note that the DAY function returns an integer between 1 and 31, depending on the day of the month. If you want to include the month and year as well, you can use the TEXT function to format the date as desired. For example:


=TEXT(A1,"mmm dd, yyyy")

This formula will return the date in the format "Apr 28, 2023".
