Hello,

I have macro in which I have a start date and an end date. For every loop, I need to paste the start date to the end date but not include the weekends. In section 3 of my code, I have it to where it will start with the start date and loop through until it gets to the number of weekdays but it still paste days sequentially instead of excluding weekends. So for example, my start date could be 10/12/2020 and my end date could be 10/22/2020, it know that there is only 9 weekdays but it still pastes the weekend dates and stops after 9 instead of excluding the weekend dates when pasting in column BA. Additionally, the dates paste down in three ways, increases 1 row at a time (ie 10/12, 10/13, 10/14), increases 1 day at time but duplicates ( ie 10/12, 10/12, 10/13, 10/13) or it increases 1 row at a time and then duplicates one last time (ie 10/12, 10/13, 10/14, 10, 14)

any help is appreciated.

When posting code, please use code tags to preserve the formatting of the code. See my signature block below for more details. I have added the tags in your post this time.

I have not studied your long code but you should not need to loop to put in a series of weekday dates as Excel has a built-in ability to do that.
Here is a code snippet that puts the weekdays you gave as an example into column BA, starting at row 2. See if you can adapt that for your code.

BTW, I suggest that you update your Account details (click your user name at the top right of the forum) so helpers always know what Excel version(s) & platform(s) you are using as the best solution often varies by version. (Don’t forget to scroll down & ‘Save’)

VBA Code:
Sub Weekday_Sequence()
  Dim StartDate As Date, EndDate As Date
  
  StartDate = DateValue("12 Oct 2020")
  EndDate = DateValue("22 Oct 2020")
  With Range("BA2")
    .Value = StartDate
    .DataSeries xlColumns, xlChronological, xlWeekday, 1, EndDate
  End With
End Sub

It includes Friday for me. Here is my test sheet after running the exact code from post #2. All I have done then is manually formatted column BA to "dddd, d mmmm yyyy"

Exactly what results do you get with that code?

Date seq vba
The problem I have is the dates can vary so if it ends on a Friday then it won't include the Friday. I tried adding to the "EndDate +1" and it still won't include the Friday.

So if my date changes from 10/12/2020 (which is a Monday) and ends 10/23/2020 (Friday) then it won't include the Friday.

Thanks for your help in advance

Looking at this thread where you seem to have tried to implement the code I suggested here, it appears that the problem is quite likely that your DataSeries is not just a Date but a Date and a Time.
See if my suggestion there resolves this problem too.

You're welcome. It would be best if you also posted something in that thread so that the other helper in that thread and/or other readers know if it is resolved.
