Hi @renecernitz ,

 

Try this in a new custom column:

Date.AddDays(Date.EndOfWeek([Input date]), 4)

 

This gives me the following ouput:

Suggest you specify the `firstDayOfTheWeek` argument as `Day.Monday`. 

 

If I don't do that, your formula returns the next Wednesday.  Possibly due to my regional settings which have Sunday as the first day of the week. 

 

Or, better yet, ask the OP when his week starts, and adjust accordingly.

Hi @ronrsnfld ,

 

Thanks for the suggestion.

If the necessary correction was more difficult than changing one number then I might have done so.
