Determining the Day of the Year

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 Year.

If you are writing macros in VBA, you may have a need to determine the current day of the year. For instance, you might want to know that February 21 is the 52 day of the year. VBA includes a handy function that allows you to quickly and easily determine the current day of the year:

iThisDay = DatePart("y", Date)

When executed, iThisDay will be equal to the current day number. Notice that this example uses the Date function. If you want to determine the day number for a different date, simply substitute that date in place of the Date function.
