Syntax for Excel 2003 instead of 2007

I have this in a cell using Office 2007 but it doesn't work for users with 2003.  Can someone suggest a change so it will work with 2003?  (Holidays is a named range on the spreadsheet)

=WORKDAY(H4, -1, Holidays)

That function is in Excel 2003. It requires the Analysis ToolPak. To enable the Analysis ToolPak, choose the menu command Tools->Add-Ins, check on Analysis ToolPak, and click OK.

You will find here a formula that you can use instead of WORKDAY:

Once you look at it though I think you will agree it is probably better to just add the Analysis Toolpak.

If you always want the previous workday then you can make that a bit simpler, i.e. using this formula


That assumes that you never have more then 5 successive non-working days (either holidays or weekends)
