#### Convert week number to date with formulas

Supposing I have a random year and week number which are 2015 and 15 in a worksheet as following screenshot shown, and now I want to find out the specific dates from Monday to Sunday by this given week number.

To calculate the date range by the specific week number, you can use the following formulas:

1. Select a blank cell you will return the start date (in our case we select the Cell B5), enter the formula: =MAX(DATE(B1,1,1),DATE(B1,1,1)-WEEKDAY(DATE(B1,1,1),2)+(B2-1)*7+1), and press the Enter key. See screenshot below:

2. Select another blank cell you will return the end date (in our case we select the Cell B6), enter =MIN(DATE(B1+1,1,0),DATE(B1,1,1)-WEEKDAY(DATE(B1,1,1),2)+B2*7), and press the Enter key. See screenshot below:
