Beginning of Year

I'm nowhere near the technical level as most of you on this site, so I'm
hoping you can help me out.

Isn't there a formula you can enter in Excel that will return the first
calendar year of a year?

Not sure what you mean - could you re-phrase?

What do you mean by calendar year? If you have a date in A1 and you want the
first date of the same year you can use

=DATE(YEAR(A1),1,1)

format as date

Put a year in A1 and in A2, enter:

=DATE(A1,1,1) then format A2 as dddd to display:

Beginning of Year

Sorry, clarification: I have a date in the format (mm/dd/yyyy), say in cell
H4. I wish to enter a formula, say in cell G5, that would return 01/01/yyyy
of the year in cell H4. Is there such a formula?

Put this in G5:

=DATE(YEAR(H4),1,1)

Format the cell as you wish to see it.

Hope this helps.
