VLOOKUP to add x "network" days to a date

Hi,

I have a formula in a cell that adds a number of days specified using a VLOOKUP to a date in another cell. Works fine.
Problem is I need it to add x number of "network" days to the date in the other cell.

In the attached example, the formula in column E adds the number of days associated with the status on sheet2 for each line where the status on sheet1 matches.

Hope this makes sense :-)

Thanks in advance,

Hi Professor,

Not sure I explained myself well enough. The date in Column E needs to be 20 network days (because the status is "warm") later than the date in column D. My formula makes it 20 calendar days later but what I need is 20 network days (also excluding holidays).

Thanks for your help,
