## How to create day of week in Infopath form function.

Hello Robert,

You may try the following steps:

1.     Create a Date Picker control, which, in this instance, I’ll name “Date”; then create a Text Box control, which we can name, “Days”;

2.     Type the following rule to your “Date” box:

(number(substring(., 9, 2)) + number(number(substring(., 1, 4)) – (floor((14 – number(substring(., 6, 2))) / 12))) + floor(number(number(substring(., 1, 4)) – (floor((14 – number(substring(., 6, 2))) / 12))) / 4) – floor(number(number(substring(., 1, 4)) – (floor((14 – number(substring(., 6, 2))) / 12))) / 100) + floor(number(number(substring(., 1, 4)) – (floor((14 – number(substring(., 6, 2))) / 12))) / 400) + floor((31 * number(number(substring(., 6, 2)) + 12 * (floor((14 – number(substring(., 6, 2))) / 12)) – 2)) / 12)) mod 7

3.    Then right click your “Days” box and  paste the code:

4.   Assign the following rule:

if Days  == 0 then set "Sunday" Days

if Days== 1 then set "Monday" to Days…and so on until you reach “7” for “Saturday”

5.   Now you’re all good to go. If you select a particular date in Date Picker control, it will show the days of the week.

Hope this helps your concern.
