Hi Guys im Fairly new to excel but pick things up quick,


Im trying to create a data base to track orders. at this point in time im using the wrokingdays function to show the amount of working days between two dates, iv done this by creating a function that when you type the application number in it creates a date of create in the adjacent box, this is then taken and a 15 day block is added to it and then the amount of working days are caluclated from the to dates. This will no longer work and i need to know how to add 15 working days to the first date instead of just 15 days which does not take in to account weekend and bank holidays and so on,

so if some one has the answer within there great knowledge please share lol. as i said new to this and its prob a very very basic answer but all help is very very very much appreciated.

Regards

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Hi, thanks for the responce i tried that, it seems to be giving a date but not the correct one,

i Take the data from eg field E11, which is a date that is generated when the application is enterd.

so when i enter this =E11+WORKDAY(E11,15)

It comes out with this asnwer 04/11/2111 17:38

this isthe date that it is adding the 15 days to 21/11/2005 17:38

so as u can see lol bit off on the date, just over 106 years :P any advice would be great.

Regards
