Hey guys,

I am using the dateadd funtion to add weekdays to my date, but it appears to be including the weekends as well. Can you help?? I am attempting to add 25 weekdays (Mon-Fri) to the reservation_date field. When I use the funtion below, it returns the date plus 25 days...

Dateadd("W", 25, [reservation_date])

ex:
reservation_date = 3/8/19
Dateadd("W", 25, [reservation_date]) returns 4/2/19 instead of 4/12/19.

Thanks!!
