Hello,

I'm new to ASP. I'm trying to make a function to add working days to a date.

In other words, I have, say, StartDate="22-10-2008" and NrDays=5. I would like to add 5 working days (23,24,25,28 and 29) and return EndDate="29-10-2008".

Can I make a function to do that?

Thanks in advance,

Hi there

The following function will do what your after.

Example usage..
'AddBusinessDays(DateTime.Now, 5)
'returns 29/10/2008 13:32:27

Regards
Steve
        Public Shared Function AddBusinessDays(ByVal AddToDate As DateTime, ByVal BusinessDaysToAdd As Integer) As DateTime
            If BusinessDaysToAdd = 0 Then Return AddToDate
            If BusinessDaysToAdd > 0 Then
                Dim TotalDaysCount As Integer = 0
                Dim BusinessDaysCount As Integer = 0
 
                Dim ReturnDate As DateTime
                While BusinessDaysCount < BusinessDaysToAdd
                    TotalDaysCount += 1
                    ReturnDate = AddToDate.AddDays(TotalDaysCount)
                    If Not (ReturnDate.DayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Saturday Or ReturnDate.DayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Sunday) Then
                        BusinessDaysCount += 1
                    End If
                End While
 
                Return ReturnDate
            Else
                Throw New ArgumentException("Negative amount")
            End If
        End Function
