How would I code a DateAdd function to get the previous business day?  The below gets the previous day, but I want the previous business day, M-F.

DateAdd("d","4/17/2000",-1) = "4/16/2000" (Sunday)

Well first off, I believe DateAdd is (interval, number, date)

Then your solution is this:

<%

Date = "4/16/2000"

Select Case WeekDay(DateAdd("d",-1,Date))
   Case 1 'Sunday
      Date = DateAdd("d",-3,Date)
   Case 7 'Saturday
      Date = DateAdd("d",-2,Date)
   Case Else
      Date = DateAdd("d",-1,Date)
End Select

%>

Good Luck
