Adding business days to a date

Posted by Stacey S on December 12, 2001 11:48 AM
I am sure there is a simple answer to this, however I have not been able to figure it out. All I need to do is add 6 days to an existing date from another cell. I am sure someone out there uses this to figure out delivery dates or due dates..

Lets say the date is in A1 and you want the new date in A2

in A2 put =A1+6

thats all there is to it.
Just make sure that A2 is formatted as a date and you are all set.

Stacey --

You can use


where A1 houses the date to which you want to add 6 business days.

Note. You need to activate Analysis Toolpak via Tools|Add-Ins in case you get a #NAME? error in applying this formula.
