Programming routines

Microsoft Excel

Calculate today's day-number, starting from the day before Jan 1, so that Jan 1 is day 1.

or, for any date entered in cell A1, calculate the corresponding day-number in that date’s year:

Google Docs Spreadsheet


Calculates the difference between Jan 1 and today (=days past) then add 1 for today's daynumber. (Your date format (1-1-year) may be different)

LibreOffice Calc:



$dayNumber = date("z") + 1; 

You can use an epoch to find other day numbers:

date("z", epoch) + 1

date("z") starts counting from 0 (0 through 365)!


from datetime import datetime
day_of_year = datetime.now().timetuple().tm_yday


use Time::Piece;
my $day_of_year = localtime->yday + 1;

# ... or ...
my $day_of_year = (localtime)[7] +1;

# ... or (if you really want to use POSIX) ...
use POSIX;
my $day_of_year = POSIX::strftime("%j", time);

Replace time with other epochs for other days.



Day number between 1 and 366. Replace now() with other dates eg.:

SELECT DAYOFYEAR('2022-02-20');


select to_char(sysdate, 'DDD') from dual
select to_char(to_date('2022-02-20','YYYY-MM-DD'), 'DDD') from dual


using DateUtils, SysUtils;

Microsoft Access

DatePart("y", Now())

Visual Basic (VB.NET)

Dim dayOfYear As Integer = DateTime.Now.DayOfYear


var today = new Date();
Math.ceil((today - new Date(today.getFullYear(),0,1)) / 86400000);

Or add a 'Day of Year' method to the date object:

Date.prototype.getDOY = function() {
  var onejan = new Date(this.getFullYear(),0,1);
  return Math.ceil((this - onejan) / 86400000);
var today = new Date();
var daynum = today.getDOY();

Objective C

int currentDay;
dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
[dateFormatter setDateFormat:@"D"];
date = [NSDate date];
currentDay = [[dateFormatter stringFromDate:date] intValue];
