Are you using networkwordays() by chance?  Switch to:

=NETWORKDAYS.INTL(start_date, end_date, [weekend], [holidays])

In your case, [weekend] = 7, so - If start date is A1, end date is B2:

=NETWORKDAYS.INTL(A1,B1,7)
0

There is also WORKDAY.INTL, which is equivalent to WORKDAY but lets you specify the days of the weekend. Like NETWORKDAYS.INTL as mentioned by ThinkSpaceSolutions, your Friday & Saturday weekend would be specified by [weekend] = 7

To get a date 12 working days in the future, you would use:
=WORKDAY.INTL(TODAY(),12,7,HolidayList)          
where HolidayList is a named range listing public holidays in your country

NETWORKDAYS.INTL and WORKDAY.INTL require Excel 2010 or later.

In earlier versions of Excel you can modify the regular NETWORKDAYS function to treat Friday and Saturday as weekend days by "offsetting" the dates, e.g. like this:

=NETWORKDAYS(A2+1,B2+1)

[+2 would give you Thurs/Fri weekend, +3 Wed/Thurs etc.]

With holidays in H2:H10 you can also exclude holidays with this version

=NETWORKDAYS(A2+1,B2+1,INDEX(H$2:H$10+1,0))

For WORKDAY try this

=WORKDAY(A2+1,C2)-1

where A2 is start date and C2 the number of days to add

Again you can exclude holidays with this version

=WORKDAY(A2+1,C2,INDEX(H$2:H$10+1,0))-1
