Hello,

I have found help on calculating the number of business days between two dates, but I need to see if there is a way to show the next business day.

I want a field that takes the currentdate and adds 1 day, but if that day is a saturday, sunday, or company holiday, show the next day following that.

Example:
currentdate: 6/6/08
@nextworkday: 6/9/08

-or-

currentdate: 11/26/08
@nextworkday: 12/1/08 (due to two company holidays)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Holidays are not provided by anything because they are related to your contry/state/province. You need to create your mechanism for them.
