    Exclamation Rounding dates to specific working days of the week

    Hi - I need to round order dates to dates in the future based on a fixed delivery schedule, for example:

    Order 1 Created 13/07/2016 - round to the next Tues
    Order 2 Created 13/07/2016 - round to the next Weds
    Order 3 Created 14/07/2016 - round to the next Mon etc etc

    Can anyone advise a solution for this?

    Many thanks

    etc etc? How are you actually determining which is the next date to 'round' up to?

    Both have the same date yet one gets rounded to Tues while the other gets rounded to Wed.

    What is the logic behind this?

    I predict this is going to be a nightmare!

    Re: Rounding dates to specific working days of the week

    Hey - thanks for the quick response! The delivery dates (so the round up to dates) are all pre-determined at customer level so this will be a fixed field per order.
    We could therefore have different orders (which will be for different customers) that will need to round to different dates.

    So:

    Customer 1 takes delivery Tuesday, order created Monday, round up date to the next Tuesday
    Customer 2 takes delivery Weds, order created Sunday, round up date to the next Weds
    Customer 3 takes delivery Tuesday, order created Thursday, round up date to the next Tuesday

    Hence the etc in the original post, there could be a number of different combinations. I have the weekday numbers for both the order creation date and the customer delivery day but need to calculate the round up date.

    Thanks for all your help!!

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.
