# Date formula help

1. ## Date formula help

I have a formula that calculates how many hrs I have to go to finish a project. Looking for a formula that tells me the finish day if I average say 9 hrs each work day (M-F) I know it should be simple but can't seem to get it to work in a single simple calculation. Any help?

Goal = 3,000

I have a formula that calculates earned hrs of 1,951 which leaves 1049 hrs to go. 1049 hrs divided by 9 per day = 116.5 days.

If I use NOW() + 116.5 it gives me the actual date of completion, but that, I assume, includes the weekends. How do I push it out to only count weekdays?

Use... WORKDAY / WORKDAY.INTL.
WORKDAY should work for your case. Use latter, if you have non-standard weekends (ex. Sun & Mon as weekend etc).

EX:
=WORKDAY(TODAY(),ROUNDUP(116.5,0))

Roundup is recommended here, as date type formula will not handle partial date and will truncate time portion.
