    Make Workday count 6 days in a week

    Hi,
    In my company, working day is monday to saturday.
    How to count for example :
    Today is 21 September 2010.
    My task will expired 20 workdays after today. So if I use =workday() the result is incorrect because excel count workday from monday to friday only.

    Is there any chance to change the excel =workday() and =networkdays() to count 6 days in a week as a workday.

    Is this correct result?

    =A1+20+IF(WEEKDAY(A1,2)=1,2,3)

    Try this formula in C2 copied down

    =A2-WEEKDAY(A2,3)+INT(7/6*(B2+MIN(5,WEEKDAY(A2,3))))

    Or this:

    =A2+B2+(WEEKDAY(A2;2)<7)+INT(B2/7)

    Edit: I think your example in C3 is wrong date.

    I don't think that works, zbor.

    Simple example: A2 = today = Tuesday 21st Sept 2010, B2 = 1......formula should return the next working day, i.e. Wednesday 22nd Sept....but that formula returns the Thursday......

    Hi daddy,
    Thankyou, your formula work correctly.
    May I ask why the formula is
    =A2-WEEKDAY(A2,3)+INT(7/6*(B2+MIN(5,WEEKDAY(A2,3))))

    The weekday is ,3 to count 0-6 monday-sunday, why not count from ,2 1-7 monday-sunday.
    also could you please explain the INT(7/6*(B2+MIN(5,WEEKDAY(A2,3)
