You can use this function:
Public Function ISO_WorkdayDiff( _
  ByVal datDateFrom As Date, _
  ByVal datDateTo As Date, _
  Optional ByVal booExcludeHolidays As Boolean) _
  As Long

' Purpose: Calculate number of working days between dates datDateFrom and datDateTo.
' Assumes: 5 or 6 working days per week. Weekend is (Saturday and) Sunday.
' May be freely used and distributed.

' 1999-04-23. Gustav Brock, Cactus Data ApS, Copenhagen
' 2000-10-03. Constants added.
'             Option for 5 or 6 working days per week added.
' 2008-06-12. Option to exclude holidays from the count of workdays.
' 2011-06-08. Rewrite using Skip functions.

  Const cbytWorkdaysOfWeek  As Byte = 5

You can exclude that check:

  Do
    datTest = datNext
    ''''   datNext = DateSkipHoliday(datTest, booReverse)
    datNext = DateSkipWeekend(datNext, booReverse)
  Loop Until DateDiff("d", datTest, datNext) = 0
