Use a formula to find the end date of each month may be very easy for every Excel user.

Select a cell next to the date data, and then type this formula =DATE(YEAR(A2),MONTH(A2)+1,0) (A2 is the cell you want to get the end of month date from) into it, and press Enter key on the keyboard, and then drag the auto fill to the range you need to apply this formula. Now each month’s end date is showed in the cells. See screenshots:


Also, you can use this formula =EOMONTH(A2,0) to get the month’s end date. (You need to format the result cells as Date format before entering this formula.)

Tip: In Excel 2003 or lower version, if you want to use the formula =EOMONTH(A2,0), you need to install Analysis Toolpak by clicking Tools > Add-Ins first. See screenshots:
