calculate Monday's date

Does anyone know how to give a date (not today's date) and have the program
calculate the previous monday's date from it? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!!!!

The DateTime object as a DayOfWeek property. Just keep subtracting 1 day
from the date and check that property. Once you hit Monday, you are done.

Joe,
As Marina I normally subtract the difference between your desired Date's day
of week & Monday's day of week.

Something like:

Public Function MondayBefore(By Val day As DateTime) As DateTime
Dim days As Integer = day.DayOfWeek - DayOfWeek.Monda y
If days < 0 Then
days += 7
End If
Return day.Date.Subtra ct(TimeSpan.Fro mDays(days))
End Function

Then you can call it passing in any date you want:

Debug.WriteLine (MondayBefore(D ateTime.Now))
Debug.WriteLine (MondayBefore(# 12/25/2005#))
Hope this helps
Jay
