Serial_number     is a sequential number that represents the date of the day you are trying to find.

Numbers 1 (Sunday) through 7 (Saturday).

Dates are stored as sequential serial numbers so they can be used in calculations. By default, December 31, 1899 is serial number 1, and January 1, 2008 is serial number 39448 because it is 39,448 days after January 1, 1900.


In the following examples, note that 2/14/2008 is a Thursday.
