I need a formula for Calc to determine the US Thanksgiving date for a given year.

I could have answered this sooner but resisted at first because of the unfriendly - frankly selfish - habit of suppressing any name. How is anyone to refer to you? How is anyone to search for your previous messages? It doesn't matter if you use your real name or not: call yourself Albert Einstein or Mickey Mouse or Algernon Cholmondeley-Featherstonehaugh if you wish, but please remember that you are asking for help and grant everyone the courtesy of giving yourself some sort of usable handle. Thank you. </soapbox>

It's not exactly clear what you want here: for this year, for example, would you like the result to be the integer 22 or the date value 22 November 2012? (I'm guessing probably the latter.)

In each case, Xn is the cell with the relevant year. In the second case, the result cell will have to be appropriately formatted in order to display as you will wish.

I trust this helps.
