Hello,

I am asking a follow up of :
https://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_27977825.html

In that question, I have an answer to exclude holidays.
I now need to use the 3rd thursday of each month but if that 3rd thursday is a holiday from the excel tab named "Holiday" then use the preceding workday.

thank you

I think I basically need to combine these two formulae somehow:
this accounts for the holidays:
=WORKDAY(D1,1,Holidays!$H2:$H10)

this finds the third thursday of the month:
=CEILING(EOMONTH(A1,0)+1-DAY(EOMONTH(A1,0)+1)+1-5,7)+19
