There is no simple formula; you basically have to count days. Here is an example:

Today, Feb. 8, 2011 is a Tuesday. What date is April 1, 2011?

Count: 20 days remaining in February, 31 days in March, 1 day in April, total 52 days. If you divide that by 7, you have a remainder of 3 (that is to say, 49 days, or 7 x 7 days, from now will again be a Tuesday. Now count off the three days: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. So the answer is Friday.

You can also use some computer program. For example, Excel has functions to calculate the day of the week for any day within a certain range.
