weekdayName

To return the full weekday name of a given date value

With this function you can determine the corresponding weekday as a string from a weekday number with 0 = Monday, 1 = Tuesday, โ€ฆ 6 = Sunday.

The function can be quite handy if the weekday is only available as a number, for example, โ€œ1โ€, but you need it to be displayed as a string.

The result will be shown in the pre-selected language.
