If you convert a date to dateItems, it becomes a comma-delimited list
of 7 items. The last one is a number indicating the day of the week.
Then you can use the system weekDayNames to find the day name that
matches that number.

put "12/5/2025" into tDate
convert tDate to dateItems
put the last item of tDate into tDayNum
put line tDayNum of the system weekdayNames into tDayName
