Need a list of weekdays?
The Auto Fill button allows us to quickly create a lists of days of the week.
However, the list includes Saturday and Sunday. Thankfully Excel offers a very simple solution to create a list that only includes weekdays.
To quickly create a list of Weekdays only:
- First type in your starting date.
- Now click and drag the Auto Fill button to display dates going forward.
- When you release the mouse button Excel will display the Auto Fill Options box.
- Click the drop-down arrow on the box and then select Fill Weekdays.
- Excel will remove any dates that fall in the weekend and only dates for week days will be displayed.
