Common Date Time formulas for Sharepoint – Calculated Fields

Get Week of the year
=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time]))+0.5-WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])),2)+1

First day of the week for a given date:
=[Start Date]-WEEKDAY([Start Date])+1

Last day of the week for a given date:
=[End Date]+7-WEEKDAY([End Date])

First day of the month for a given date:
=DATEVALUE(“1/”&MONTH([Start Date])&”/”&YEAR([Start Date]))

Last day of the month for a given year (does not handle Feb 29). Result is in date format:
=DATEVALUE (CHOOSE(MONTH([End Date]),31,28,31,30,31,30,31,31,30,31,30,31) &”/” & MONTH([End Date])&”/”&YEAR([End Date]))
Day Name of the week : e.g Monday, Mon
=TEXT(WEEKDAY([Start Date]), “dddd”)
=TEXT(WEEKDAY([Start Date]), “ddd”)

The name of the month for a given date – numbered for sorting – e.g. 01. January:

=CHOOSE(MONTH([Date Created]),”01. January”, “02. February”, “03. March”, “04. April”, “05. May” , “06. June” , “07. July” , “08. August” , “09. September” , “10. October” , “11. November” , “12. December”)

Get Hours difference between two Date-Time :
=IF(NOT(ISBLANK([End Time])),([End Time]-[Start Time])*24,0)

Date Difference in days – Hours – Min format : e.g 4days 5hours 10min :
DAY(Today)<DAY(Created))),1,0)&” years, “&MONTH(Today)-MONTH(Created)+IF(AND(MONTH(Today)
>=DAY(Created)),12,IF(AND(MONTH(Today)>MONTH(Created),DAY(Today)<DAY(Created)),-1)))&” months,
“&Today-DATE(YEAR(Today),MONTH(Today)-IF(DAY(Today)<DAY(Created),1,0),DAY(Created))&” days”

    Hey guys, I could not get this last formula to work in my project. So I came up with a solution that will get you the difference between a date (with time also) and correctly take care of some problems I saw in other solutions (for instance having less than a day in hours difference). Hope you will find it useful!

    =IF(HOUR([Ending Date])>HOUR([Starting Date]),DATEDIF([Starting Date],[Ending Date],”d”)&” days “&HOUR([Ending Date]-[Starting Date])&” hours “,(DATEDIF([Starting Date],[Ending Date],”d”)-1)&” days “& HOUR([Ending Date]-[Starting Date])&” hours “)&MINUTE([Ending Date]-[Starting Date])&” minutes”

    great post; thanks for those formulas. I’ve made a slight edit to your “First day of the week” one to get it to use Monday as the first day of the week, even if given the following Sat or Sun, which I thought I’d post back incase it’s of use to anyone else (since just adding 2 instead of 1 didn’t work the way I’d hoped for weekends, and I didn’t want to overcomplicate the formula):

    =[Start Date]-WEEKDAY([Start Date],3)

    More info on this function can be found here:

  7. January 11, 2010 at 7:38 PM

    Hi, this year (2010) starts on a friday, therefore you can take away the +1 to get the actual weeknumer, another way will be to store a number for the starting day in this year and make an extension in the calculating.

  9. HyVong said,

    February 23, 2010 at 9:39 PM

    Further to the formula above.
    Using these formulas, you are assuming the week starts from Sunday to Saturday
    First day of the week for a given date:
    =[Start Date]-WEEKDAY([Start Date])+1

    Last day of the week for a given date:
    =[End Date]+7-WEEKDAY([End Date])

    If you want your week to start from Monday to Sunday, include an extra parameter value to your WEEKDAY() function

    First day of the week for a given date:
    =[Start Date]-WEEKDAY([Start Date],2)+1

    Last day of the week for a given date:
    =[End Date]+7-WEEKDAY([End Date],2)

      Thanks for this reply post and thanks for everyone’s help! I was wondering if you could give me the formula to make the week number (you know, the column that says “Week” and has the calculated formula of “=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time]))+0.5-WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])),2)+1”) be so that it shows the start date as a Thursday, not a Monday.

      I’m new with all of this stuff so I think your post is helpful but do not know how to apply it to my own situation. Any help is appreciated.

    You can also check for an error in a formula before applying it. For example, if I wanted to calculate a difference of two dates and my calculation is as below:


    Now, lets say if the “ResolutionDate” is blank initially, the calculation above would give an error. The calculation can be updated to be:

    =IF(ISERROR(DATEDIF([CreatedDate],[ResolutionDate],”d”)),””,DATEDIF([CreatedDate],[Resolution Date],”d”))

  16. Scott said,

    March 30, 2010 at 7:11 PM

    Yep – that’s a function that doesn’t work unless you first create a dummy column called TODAY and delete it afterwards. That column must be present whenever you make modifications to your column, so leave it in place until you get the formula mastered.

    Would you help me please?

    I want to calculate to difference between two times in a sharepoint list. The first is a column named start date i have created and the second is a column named end date (i have created also) .

    the calculation should be done from these two columns to a new column field name response time i have created also.

    The display of the result should be as follow: number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

    Also It should not count the weekends, knowing that a weekend is Saturday and Sunday. So the count should be only on working days:


    startdate: 24/03/2010 2:15 pm

    enddate: 29/03/2010 1:24 pm

    PS: the start date here is a wednesday and the end date is a monday, so the weekend in between should not be counted.

    the display to be above exemple should be: 2 days, 23 hours, 8 minutes, 21 seconds.

    i am insisting on showing the hours, minutes and seconds also because sometimes the start and end date are separated by only few seconds, or only few minutes, or only few hours or only few days, or the combination of some, or the combination of all of them.

    Thank you…

I can make it work in excel, but i’m not sure how to use TEXT function along with time to get it to work. Any suggestions? Example: I walk 3.720 miles in 52 minutes 15 seconds. I know I’d need to find percent fraction 15/60, but not sure how to go about in sharepoint. In excel pace would be 14 minutes, 11 seconds and .9 tenths.

    Fairly great job on the formulas. I was playing around with the last day of the month. First question why were you using datevalue. this returns a serial number, not a date. Any way I made a modification and now it also returns accurate last day for both non leap and leap years. here you go:

    =DATE(YEAR([End Date]),MONTH([Date1]),CHOOSE(MONTH([End Date]),31,IF(MOD(YEAR([End Date]),4)=0,29,28),31,30,31,30,31,31,30,31,30,31))

    this formula will return a date in date firmat, and it will return the accurate last day.

    • sfmp said,

      November 24, 2010 at 3:42 PM

      When I use this formula it returns the serial number not the actual date?? I’m using the Created column for “End Date” but what are you using for “Date 1”?

      • sfmp said,

        November 24, 2010 at 3:54 PM

        S’alright. I added another calculated column to convert the serial date!

      • larry said,

        November 24, 2010 at 11:55 PM

        it should not be in serial format. the DATE formula is in date format. My Date 1 field is a date field, that allowed user input of date.

    DateDifference in a simpler format that I pulled together after looking at the xPath for conditional formatting. This calculates the days remaining from the DueDate (a date column in a SharePoint list) and the current date.

    Note that the 1033 is the Locale ID for EN-US.

    ddwrt:DateTimeTick(ddwrt:FormatDate(ddwrt:GenDisplayName(string($thisNode/@DueDate)), 1033, 1)) – ddwrt:DateTimeTick(ddwrt:GenDisplayName(string($Today)))

    Calculating Previous Month: I just finished up a project where I did just this by creating two “extra” columns for doing the calculation.

    **Create two columns

    **Create the View
    Then created the view with the following filter:
    FirstDayofMonth –> is less than or equal to –> [TODAY]-30
    LastDayofMonth –> is greater than or equal to –> [TODAY]-30

    hope this works for you as well as it diid for me…

    Convert a month name, and year to last day of the month. The trick is to set the date to the first day on the next month, then subtract a day … you always get the last day of the month, even in leap years. It’s a thing of beauty. 😉

      I can give you a few formulas that you can play with and figure out how to combined them later once you get it working. First I would get first day of month, either current or the month you need like from a due date or start date:
      this will give you the fist day, easyu right? now get the weekday of this date:

      This formula comes close

      it doesn't account if the first day of month is a Wednesday. so do that check first

      Forgot to add, this finds the first Wednesday. so you will add 7 to your final date for second wednesday

    Is there a way to simply add 30 WORKING days to a date? I don’t need count the number of days between two dates, but I do need a date [30 working days hence] to automatically populate a calculated column field based on the manually entered date in another column.

    Scenario: A user enters a date in the “Report Date” column, and the “Reply Date” calculated column would automatically create a date which is the entered “Report Date” + 30 Working Days.

    The below formulas in the “Reply Date” calculated column add 30 calendar days, but they do not add 30 working days.

    =DATE(YEAR([Report Date]),MONTH([Report Date]),DAY([Report Date])+30)

    =[Report Date]+30

    I have observed multiple possible formulas in online forums, but the solutions offered for this type of problem seem to stop at a 7 to 14 day period (1-2 weeks) which is fairly easy to account for, but given that the number of days in a month vary, and they have a different number of weekends, it has been more difficult to find an attempt a 30 workday solution.

    Doubtless there is likely something obvious I have overlooked, but I haven’t yet identified what that is.

    I would be grateful for any assistance from the fine people who frequent this site.

    Looking for a twist on this formula to include a work shift. Our folks work a typical shift of 12 hours. I am using a calendar (SharePoint) list form to have them enter only Start to End dates for workflow approvals, so only want one entry per block requested. For instance, they Start 3/1/2016 at 6 a.m. and End at 3/3/2016 at 6 p.m., they are requesting 36 vacation hours based on their shift schedule. I need to tweak the formula to use the 12-hr shift for the actual calculation. So far the =IF(NOT(ISBLANK([End Time])),([End Time]-[Start Time])*24,0) formula works well until they request >1 day. Playing with more to the IF statement, but no success so far. Any help is appreciated. Thx

    This website offers a formula for calculating the last day of the month – see above – with a caveat that the formula does not handle Feb 29.

    “Last day of the month for a given year (does not handle Feb 29). Result is in date format:”

    This formula handles Feb 29, and will return TBD when a date field is blank. The example uses the Created date field, but I usually use it with a Completed date field, or a Cancelled date field.


    I have similar formulas to calculate the Fiscal Year and Quarter for a date – i.e., 17 Aug 2016 would return FY-Q = 16-4, and a formula which returns the Fiscal Year for a specific date – i.e., 22 Oct 2016 would return FY = 17.

    Hello All,

    I would be grateful to you if you could help me to create a Formula for Below Criteria

    Working Days = Monday to Friday (Excluding Saturdays & Sundays)

    Working Hours= 10:30 AM to 7 PM

    SLA to Complete the Received Task in 4.15 Hours (4 Hours and 15 Minutes) and the working Hours should not get exceeded to 7 Pm.
    Else the left over time out of 4.15 (SLA) will get shifted to next Working Day.

    For Example; I have received a task on 1st September at 5:00 PM , However, My shift ends at 7:00 PM and my SLA to complete the Task is 4.15 WORKING HOURS. Hence I have just got 2 hours of today (7:00 PM – 5:00 PM= 2 Hours) and rest will get shifted to Next Working Day. Hence my DUE Time to complete the Task is 2nd September 12:45 PM.

    I would really appreciate your efforts and thanks a lot in advance.

      When you were talking in 30 minute increments it is always easier to use a workflow than a calculated field. You break it down into increments minutes and you count how many 10:30 a.m. is into the day and then how many you’re in time is from the end of the day in minutes. That will provide you a range that will make the workflow have the ability to move the time available and captured to the next day.

    Wondering if anyone can help. Any advise appreciated!

    I’ve created a ‘Workers timesheet’ template in info path 2010 and uploaded to SharePoint 2013 library- it is designed to look like a table that asks users to enter in their work hours for each day in the labelled columns. Its Pretty straight forward. They use the browser in the SharePoint library to enter in their data then submit. One form for each Staff member in the library respectively. Easy.
    But, I need to set a field on the timesheet template to be a specific dynamic date, as it reads on the SP form “fortnight ending”. Explanation: Id like the fortnight ending field to fill in the fortnight date automatic so staff don’t have to look up what fortnight they are in. eg fortnight ending 20/9/16, then when the fortnight passes, the field changes to the next fortnight ending date eg, 4/10/16, then after that 18/10/16 etc…so it will change dynamically to exactly 14 days after the former date once that fortnight has passed.

    Any help is hugely welcome…happy to explain more
