I need an excel formula to look at the value of certain cells.

1. If the Length of the value in column V is less than or equal to 1500, then the length needs to be divided by 175. In the attached example this would be V2/175=5.7 days (6 days).

2. Take the answer from number 1 (6 days)and add 14 more days to the value in column I. These only need to be Network Days, not counting Saturday or Sundays

3. If the Length of the value in column V is greater than 1500, then the length needs to be divided by 300. In the attached example this would be V3/300=5 days (5 days).

4. Take the answer from number 3 (4 days) and add 14 more days to the value in column I. These only need to be Network Days, not counting Saturday or Sundays

5. If day ends up being a fraction, 4.32 days, round up to 5 days.

Try this formula in F2 copied down

=WORKDAY(I2,CEILING(V2/IF(V2<1500,175,300),1)+14)

Is this what you are looking for?

=WORKDAY(I2,14+ROUNDUP(V2/IF(V2<=1500,175,300),0))

This adds the result of 1 or 3, rounded up, + 14 to the value in column I.

Try:

=WORKDAY(I2,14+ROUNDUP(V2/IF(V2<=1500,175,300),0))

copied down.

Hey, three for the price of one!

I notice, compared with nutsch and NBVC that I should have used <= rather than < :(

Anyway, here's my formula in a workbook....

First, I rewrote the objective description:
1. If the value in column V "Length" is less than or equal to 1500, then the value needs to be divided by 175 and rounded up. In the attached example this would be V2/175=5.7 days (6 days).

2. If the Length of the value in column V is greater than 1500, then the length needs to be divided by 300 and rounded up. In the attached example this would be V3/300=5 days (5 days).

4. Take the answers from above and add 14.  These represent workdays.
 From the date in column I, compute the date resulting by adding the workdays computed above.

B2 Low feet per day 175   ... that is, cell A2 has "Low feet per day" and cell B2 has value 175
B3 High feet per day 300  ... etc
B4 Length threshold 1500

Formula:
=+WORKDAY(I2,14+ROUNDUP(IF(V2<=$B$4,V2/$B$2,V2/$B$3),0))

WOW! Three Ex Exch Legends for the price of 1! Thanks guys...works great! I appreciate the help.

I will award points, but is there a way to and an iferror in there so that if there arent any values in column V, it returns a blank instead of a value error?

Hello Ted, just try another IF

=IF(V2="","",WORKDAY(I2,CEILING(V2/IF(V2<=1500,175,300),1)+14))

With mine and nutsch's formulas, you don't get #N/A... but you can use this to return blank.

=IF(V2="","",WORKDAY(I2,14+ROUNDUP(V2/IF(V2<=1500,175,300),0)))

Well...at the time, I thought he admitted his ommission:

"I notice, compared with nutsch and NBVC that I should have used <= rather than < :( "

In hindsight, I absolutely agree with the others that received points. Barry, you know its not personal, I am sorry! Ha!!!

Do I contact the mods?

Also, I will open another question. And forgive me for my limitations. The formula that you guys helped me answer added days from I2. I need it to subtract from I2. I wasnt getting correct answers simply inserting a "-" sign.
