Holidays, use previous work date

Experts,

I have a spreadsheet with many columns.
I am dragging a date to the right from A1 to the last column.
If the date is any of the French holidays then I want to use the preceding work day.

the attached file is holidays in France.

How could I do this?

Try using the networkdays function, and/or including your file.

Do you want to include weekends? If not then assuming you have the holidays in another sheet, say holidays sheet range H2:H10 then try using this formula in B1 copied acros

=WORKDAY(A1,1,Holidays!$H2:$H10)

If you drag that across it will give you every working day (excluding holidays and weekends)

see attached
