Function  Description  Syntax  Example  Visual 
DATE  Returns a date from a given year, month, and day 
DATE(year,month,day)

A formula formatted as DATE(2021,10,14) returns 10/14/2021.  
DATEVALUE  Returns a serial number based on a date written in MM/DD/YYYY format 
DATEVALUE("date")

A formula formatted as DATEVALUE("03/06/2021") returns the serial number of the date, 44261. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
DAY  Returns the day of the month for a date 
DAY("date")

A formula formatted as DAY(A3), referencing a cell that contains the date 06/29/2021, will ignore the month and year and will only return the date, 29. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
DAYS  Returns the number of days between two dates 
DAYS(end_date,start_date)

A formula formatted as DAYS(A4,A3), referencing cells that contain the dates 6/29/021 and 6/10/2021 respectively, will display the total number of days between these dates. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
DAYS360  Returns the number of days between two dates based on a 360day year (twelve 30day months) 
DAYS360(end_date, start_date, [use_european_method])

A formula formatted as DAYS360(A3,A4), referencing cells that contain the dates 2/25/2021 and 3/01/2021 respectively, will display the number of days between them as 6 rather than 4; this is because a month is treated as 30 days, regardless of how long a month is. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
EDATE  Returns the serial date that is the indicated number of months before or after a specified date 
EDATE(start_date, months)

A formula formatted as EDATE(A3,3) will return a date that is three months after the date entered in cell A3; in this case, the reference cell date is 6/29/2021, so the formula cell will display 9/29/2021.  
EO MONTH  Returns the end of the month for a given date, offset by a number of months 
EOMONTH(date, months)

A formula formatted as EOMONTH(A3,3) will return a date that is the last day of the month, three months after the date entered in cell A3; in this case, the reference cell date is 6/29/2021, so the formula cell will display 9/30/2021.  
MONTH  Returns the month of the year for a date 
MONTH(date)

A formula formatted as MONTH(A3), referencing a cell that contains the date 6/29/2021, will return the number 6, as June is the 6th month. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
NETWORKDAYS  Returns the number of whole working days between two dates 
NETWORKDAYS(start_date, end_date, [holidays])

A formula formatted as NETWORKDAYS(A3,A4,A5), referencing cells that contain the dates 11/19/2021, 12/03/2021, and 11/25/2021 respectively, will result in the number 10. The formula returns the total number of business days between the dates, with 11/25/2021 excluded as a special holiday, even though it falls on a Thursday. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
NETWORKDAYS.INTL  Returns the number of whole working days between two dates with custom weekends and holidays 
NETWORKDATSINTL(start_date, end_date, [weekend], [holidays])

A formula formatted as NETWORKDAYS.INTL(A3,A4,12,A5). referencing cells that contain the dates 11/19/2021, 12/03/2021, and 11/25/2021 respectively, will result in the number 12. The formula returns the total number of business days between the dates, with the third number in the formula indicating that every day except Monday is considered a business day, with 11/25/2021 excluded as a special holiday. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
WEEKDAY  Returns the day of the week corresponding to a date 
WEEKDAY (serial_number, [return_type])

A formula formatted as WEEKDAY(A3), referencing a cell that contains the date 6/29/2021, will result in the number three. Because this date is a Tuesday, which is the third day of the week if the week starts on Sunday, A1 returns the number three. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
WORKDAY  Returns the serial date before or after a specified number of workdays 
WORKDAY(start_date, days, [holidays])

A formula formatted as WORKDAY(A3,A4,A5), referencing cells that contain the values 6/29/2021, 12, and 7/05/2021 respectively, will result in the date 7/16/2021. Cell A3 contains the start date, Cell A4 indicates that we count 12 business days (MondayFriday), and cell A5 indicates that we should not count 7/05/2021 as one of those business days, as it is being treated as a holiday.  
WORKDAY.INTL  Returns the serial date before or after a specified number of workdays with custom weekend parameters 
WORKDAY.INTL(start_date, days, [weekend], [holidays])

A formula formatted as WORKDAY.INTL(A3,A4,A5,A6), referencing cells that contain the values 6/29/2021, 12, 5, and 7/04/2021 respectively, will result in the date 7/18/2021. Cell A3 indicates the start date as 6/29/2021, and cell A4 indicates that we will be counting 12 business days. In this case, A5 indicates that weekends will be WednesdayThursday, so all other days will be business days, except 7/04/2021 in Cell A6, which is an excluded holiday.  
YEAR  Returns the year for a date 
YEAR(date)

A formula formatted as YEAR(A3), referencing a cell containing the date 6/29/2021, will result in the year 2021, as the date occurs in this year. The value is only returning the year rather than the full date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.  
YEARFRAC  Calculates the fraction of the year represented by the number of whole days between two dates 
YEARFRAC(start_date, end_date, [basis])

A formula formatted as YEARFRAC(A3,A4), referencing cells that contain the dates 6/29/2021 and 12/29/2021 respectively, will result in the value .5. Cell A1 displays the part of a year that elapses from the date in A3 to the date in A4. Since the basis variable has been excluded, the formula assumes 12 thirtyday months in one year, resulting in exactly six months or half a year. The value is returned as a number rather than a date, so the cell containing the function should not use the 'date' format.
