Excel formula to get next thursday date from a cell date (or from today)

Occasional Contributor

I am having some trouble figuring out the formula to auto-populate the date of next Thursday from another cell date. Kindly refer to the attached sheet, I need to insert a formula in B2 cell.

@Varun_Aggarwal Try this:

=A2+5-WEEKDAY(A2)

The number 5 is chosen because I assumed that 5 is the day number for a Thursday.  

@Varun_Aggarwal 

I'd adjust the formula as

=A2+7-WEEKDAY(A2+2,1)

Main question here is - if today is Thu shall we show this date or next Thu. If the latest that could be

=A2+7-MOD(A2+2,7)

All set of formulas for such case is here Date for Next Wednesday (Microsoft Excel) (tips.net)

Thanks a lot! I was looking at the below formula and it worked pretty well.

=A2+7-WEEKDAY(A2+2,1)
