User will input an specific date where the cell is formated to show mm/dd/yy. I am racking my little brain trying to figure a formula to add 6 business days to the given date.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

Hi Chia
Welcome to the board

The function WORKDAY does exactly that. Check the help.

Remark: You may have to enable the Analysis ToolPak (Tools>Add-ins)

Hope this helps

Sorry for being an idiot. But i know little about formulas on here. Just enough to get myself in trouble.

Cell e44 is the cell which user will be placing a date ex. 9-14-06.

I need this cell to actually display a date that is 6 business days in the future. (9-22-06). i tried to type in the formula as follows but all i am getting is this "##################" and the pound signs are about 50 characters long.
=E44+(WORKDAY+6)

I am using another cell for the formulas for now untill i can get this figured out.

thanks again

and format the result as date

Thanks dude. That hit the nail on the head.

I have been Bashing my head against a wall for a good 12 hours on this formula.

Thanks a Million
