Thank you for the formula. I had a question about it. It does work for 2016, but when entering 1/12017, it identifies the first Monday of the month to be 1/9/17, when it's actually 1/2/17. Am I misunderstanding the formula's intent? Meaning, should I enter a different date to pull the 1/2/17 date? Thanks again for the help.

Did not work for me on every Monday that was in a month with the first day being a Sunday,

Given A1 is the first of the month "1/1/2020" or "1/2/2020" etc, This did work for me:


=A1+MOD(8-WEEKDAY(A1,2),7)

The formula doesn't work for Mondays if the last day of the previous month is a Saturday (weekday no 7). The following day is therefore a Sunday (weekday no 1) and you only need add 1 day to get to a Monday. However, the formula adds 10-1=9 days and gives you the 9th January as the first Monday. There needs to be a second IF function:
=IF(WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(A2,-1)+1)=1,EOMONTH(A2,-1)+2,IF(WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(A2,-1)+1)=2,EOMONTH(A2,-1)+1,EOMONTH(A2,-1)+(8+MOD(2,7))-WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(A2,-1)+1)))
