Determining the Day of the Month

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Determining the Day of the Month.

When creating macros, you may have a need to know the specific day of the month represented by a particular date. For instance, you may want to determine the day of the month on which the macro is being executed. The following code will do the trick:

iDay = Day(Now())

The Day function returns an integer value representing the day of the month of whatever date you provide. In this example, the Now function represents today's date, and so Day returns today's day of the month.
