Nice one, Michael. Thank you...

I changed the '-6' to '-5' so as to show the Monday of the week. I know this is not strictly correct, but it's what my client wanted!!!

When I copy and try to save it says "the specified parameter can't be found (year)- when I try to add it, it won't let me because it has the same name as a function. I'm a little new these custom functions, help:)

Use a different name for the year parameter. See the discussion at https://www.briandunning.com/cf/1602.
