I have the following code that gives me the working day number per month but what I need now is to make the weekends and holidays have the same workday number as the preceding work day. For instance, if Friday is workday number 5, then the following Saturday and Sunday should also be number 5. Also, if Monday is a holiday then that should also be number 5 and then Tuesday would be the next work day with a number 6. Is this Possible?  The code below sets the weekends and holidays to 0

      when weekend_or_holiday=1 then 0
      else row_number() over (
            partition by datediff(m,0,thedate), weekend_or_holiday
            order by thedate) end
from tbldates
order by thedate    

 -- Add column

alter table tbldates add workdaynum int

-- update column

;with tmp as (
      when weekend_or_holiday=1 then 0
      else row_number() over (
            partition by datediff(m,0,thedate), weekend_or_holiday
            order by thedate) end
from tbldates
update tmp set workdaynum=setto
