I'm looking at trying to add working days to a date in sql.  Since our date never are in a weekend, I would like to add 4 days to a working date, but do not want it to fall within a weekend.

How would I write the query to do this?

Example:
Date = 5/1/2013
Working Day = 4

Output: 5/7/2013

Was going to put together a query but did a google search first and found this:

Several different variations presented there.  Give them a try.

Thanks.  I saw that as well when searching for it, but couldn't get the last one to work.  Just played with everyone of them until I got one to work.
