Probably already been answered, but extended help for this function indicates that day of week and day of year are ignored.

If you just want to know the current day of the week, use the LabVIEW "Get Date/Time String" function and use Long format, then parse out the day of the week. Or, an easier way would be to use the "Get Date/Time in Seconds" wired into the "Format Date/Time String" with "%A wired to the format string.
If you want either for a specific time, you will have to translate the date/time you want to seconds since 1/1/1904 and input it into either function above.
