    Two of the columns in a form that I have created in Microsoft Access include:

    Date Due
    Days Required (this is a calculated field based on other information in the form)

    Provided the above fields are known, I want a "Start Date" field to figure out when I should start the project. In excel, the function would be =WORKDAY(Date Due, Days Required), however I do not know how to work this for Access.

    Any suggestions?

    I notice that the Excel Wordays function has the facility to include Holidays, if you do not need this in Access then it is simply -
    [Date Due] - [Days Required]
    if you need more help on this please either post or email me a zipped copy of the database.
    This calculation can be done in a Query or on a form, but the form may require visual basic to make it work properly.

    I don't want it to count holidays or weekends. I only want it to count the 5-day work days. I am unfamiliar with visual basic, so would you like me to email the database to you then?

    I will send you private mail you my email address.
    I can't remember if Access has a working day function so it might take some calculation to get only working days.
