The closest I came to a solution was a scenario where all the dates for the year were in one column.

I put the dates for the year (Monday 12/31/2012 thru Sunday 1/5/2014 in A5:A375.
Then, in A1 I put whatever date I'm looking for.
Off to the side (D1) I entered: =VLOOKUP($A$1,$A$5:$A$375,1,0)-(A5-1)+4
     VLOOKUP(A1,$A$5:$A$375,1,1) finds the date you're looking for.
-(A5-1) subtracts the day before the first date on the list FROM the date found.
     +4 adds in the four rows above the range.
The result is the row number of the date you're looking for.

I hope this helps.

Now this might take a bit of explaining

I have a spreadsheet that records data for each day of the year
Vertically row by row I have the days of the year
I like my week to start on a Monday
So I have my year/days set to start on the first Monday of the year
So the actual first day of the year position/row is dynamic either on the
Monday or above
This all works ok

However I then (for manipulating data by month) need to know the row/cell in
which the first day of the year (or month) appears
How do I look up/find within a column the cell in which the first day of the
month is - I assume that if I know how to do it for say January then I can
do it for any month.
I'm totally clueless as to how to do this

/Hopping that my explanation isn't to bamboozling/
Any ideas - please
