Greetings Experts,

Here is the scenario.  I will need to calculate a date that is 30 days (1 month) from a date entered in a cell.  The trick is that if the date falls on a non-working day it must roll to the next working day.

Thanks in advance.

If you want exactly 1 calendar month later then with date in A1 use this formula in B1

=WORKDAY(EDATE(A1,1)-1,1)

That will not fall on a Sat or Sun, if you want to avoid holidays too then with holidays listed in H2:H10 try this version

=WORKDAY(EDATE(A1,1)-1,1,H$2:H$10)

That adds a month then jumps to the next workday (if necessary)

or you can use just 30 days like this

=WORKDAY(A1+30-1,1)

regards, barry
