  • $\begingroup$ please post the code you're using. you're telling that you have the numbers and want to create a column with the days of the week? Ex.: '24/oct/2016' = 'monday' ? $\endgroup$ – dot.Py Oct 24 '16 at 23:27
  • $\begingroup$ The, exactly like what you have mentioned. 24 Oct 2016= Monday. Then I could just choose Thursday's data. And analyse it. I have been coding since a month in python. $\endgroup$ – sujith Oct 25 '16 at 3:34

Without your code it isn't clear, however here are 3 options for grabbing the day from a date in a string:

from datetime import datetime
import calendar
d='10/24/2016' #Oct 24th, 2016
m_date=datetime.strptime(d,"%m/%d/%Y")
print "Your date:",m_date
print "Option 1: ",calendar.day_name[m_date.weekday()]
print "Option 2: ",datetime.today().weekday()
print "Option 3: ",datetime.today().strftime("%A")
