Finding a future date that excludes holidays and weekends.
Posted on 2014-03-12
I have a database that calculates sick time for employees. Basically I use the day they first go out and I am given the number of days they have available to them. For example, an employee may have 130 days accrued. I cannot count weekends or holidays and I have to come up with a date for when their sick time expires. I have a table with holidays in it. Currently, I am looping through every day to see whether it is a weekend or holiday. If it is, I cannot count it as part of the 130 days available. This is extremely slow as every day is analyzed. I'm sure there must be an easier way to accomplish this using a date function to determine weekdays only. I just don't know how to check for weekends and holidays together.
