    I have a column of calendar dates (A1:A100) that do not include Saturdays or Sundays. I have certain production times for various products that I must base off of these dates and am having trouble counting an amount of days that doesn't include any Saturdays or Sundays in my count. Example below.

    10-02-2006 I need to add 18 production days to this date. Workdays only being Mondays-Fridays, I need the answer of the formula to equal 10-25-2006.

    Can anyone assist?

    Use: =WORKDAY(A1,18)

    The WORKDAY function is part of the Analysis ToolPak. If the formula returns a NAME? error, you'll need to load the ATP (via Tools -- Add-Ins) or install it.

    Now I'm having trouble with the results. How do I insure that the result is not a Saturday or Sunday? A string of "IF" statements? Is there a simpler way?

    It ought to take care of it. If I enter 02/10/2006 (October 2nd) in A1 and use:

    =WORKDAY(A1,6)

    the result is 10/10/2006, i.e. Tuesday of the week after. Which is (ignoring the start day) Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Mon, Tues -- 6 days.
