I'm trying to get the dates, 5 and 7 days from now.
Example: Today = 3/19/2013, 5 days = 3/24/2013, 7 days = 3/26/2013

I do not want to count weekends, ie only count business days Mon-Fri.
Example: Today = 3/19/2013, 5 days = 3/26/2013, 7 days = 3/28/2013

Working in classic asp
<% 
Dim strToday, strFive, strSeven
strToday = Date()
strFive = Date() + 5
strSeven = Date() + 7
%>

Today: <%=strToday %><br />
5 Days: <%=strFive %><br />
7 Days: <%=strSeven %>

use the DateAdd function:

<% 
Dim strToday, strFive, strSeven
strToday = now
strFive = DateAdd( "d", 5, strToday )
strSeven = DateAdd( "d", 7, strToday )
%>

Today: <%=strToday %><br />
5 Days: <%=strFive %><br />
7 Days: <%=strSeven %>

Big Monty,
This still counts weekends. I only want it to count business days.

read too fast, my apologies :)

try this:

<%
dim strToday, businessDays5, businessDays7
strToday = now()

select case WeekDay( strToday )
    case 2, 3, 4     '-- Monday - Wednesday
           businessDays5 = 7
           businessDays7 = 9
    case 5, 6    '-- Thursday - Friday
           businessDays5 = 7
           businessDays7 = 11
end select

strFive = DateAdd( "d", businessDays5, strToday )
strSeven = DateAdd( "d", businessDays7, strToday )
%>

Today: <%=strToday %><br />
5 Days: <%=strFive %><br />
7 Days: <%=strSeven %>

untested, but I think it'll work

No problem, I do it all the time.  This works, but only if the date (strToday) doesn't land on a weekend.

ie. if strToday = 3/22/2013 (weekend) then strFive and strSeven = 3/22/2013 as well.

you'll need to add case conditions for both saturday and sunday, so change my case statement to:

select case WeekDay( strToday )
    case 1     '-- Sunday
           businessDays5 = 5
           businessDays7 = 9
    case 2, 3, 4     '-- Monday - Wednesday
           businessDays5 = 7
           businessDays7 = 9
    case 5, 6    '-- Thursday - Friday
           businessDays5 = 7
           businessDays7 = 11
    case 7     '-- Saturday
           businessDays5 = 6
           businessDays7 = 10
end select
