On the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO), most companies that pay a dividend do so every six months. That means that every week, there is usually at least one ASX 200 dividend share that is about to trade ex-dividend for its upcoming shareholder payouts.

An ex-dividend date usually results in a corresponding drop in the company’s share price. So it pays to know when exactly your shares are about to go ex-div. As for this week, these ASX 200 dividend shares are in line to do just that:
