    I need to use formulas to caluculate a given number of workdays before a given date.

    For example:
    A project is due on August 31

    I need to figure
    2 workdays before that date
    7 workdays before that date
    13 workdays before that date
    26 workdays before that date

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    =datecellreference-2
    =datecellreference-7
    =datecellreference-13
    =datecellreference-26
    Where datecellreference is the cell that holds the date you are calculating from

    For workdays, use the WORKDAY function, e.g.:

    =WORKDAY(A1,-2)

    To access WORKDAY you must have the Analysis ToolPak installed (check via Tools - Add-Ins).
