Hi Experts,

I need to create a formula in CR8.5 that will calculate the number of working days back from a set date. ie;
if Condition = 3 then subtract 3 working days from enddate
else if Condition = 5 then subtract 5 working days from enddate etc

I am happy using the dateadd function to do the subtract but not sure on how to subtract only working days from the end date.

Any help appreciated

Thanks

Here is a formula to calculate the work days between 2 dates.  Use it then subtract the 3 or 5 days from the result.
