Hello Everyone,

I need help and appreciate everyone's expertise.

I have a date with time, need to add number of days, exclude weekends. Results should show Date with Time.

A2 = Jul 8, 2016 10:30:06
B2 = 2.917 days

I tried this: WORKDAY(A2,b2)
Result: 7/12/2016 0:00:00

Need results to consider the start date/time.

Thanks for your help.

if i'm understanding correctly and you just need the time from A2 added back to the date then maybe...

=WORKDAY(A2,B2)+MOD(A2,1)

Thank-you Weazel.

I tried putting the time back in. 2.917 days is 70 hours

Results = 7/12/2016 10:30:06
But should be 7/12/2016 8:30:06

Thanks Tetra201.

It should be 7/13/2016 8:30:06

Now how do we make Excel show that.

I'm sure theres a better way but maybe....

=MOD(A2,1)+MOD(B2,1)+WORKDAY(A2,B2)

Just to mention: the above formula stumbles over some data pairs, for example:
12/21/2016 23:45:00 and 2.2, or 12/19/2016 08:30:00 and 4.7.

Here is the formula that works:

=WORKDAY(A2,B2+MOD(A2,1))+MOD(A2+B2,1)
