    Automating a date calendar to include business days

    Hi peeps,

    Im not all that bad in excel but i haven't had all that much experience with date functions. I'm trying to automate a calendar such as the one attached to possibly just input the cell of the first working day then it automatically updates iteself. Is this a simple thing to do?

    Many thanks
    Neill

    Try this,
    =WORKDAY(E3,1,$K$2:$K$4)

    Used in your example

    K2:K4 are holidays

    Note that use of WORKDAY prior to Excel 2007 requires Activation of the Analysis ToolPak Add-In (Tools -> AddIns)

    If you need to deal with public holidays and/or are performing lots of date based calculations it's very worthwhile activating.
    Note each client that uses the file will need the same [ie activated on each PC] - you can use VBA to auto activate if necessary.
