Hello, Is the below formula correct to add simply 45 days (not WORKDAYS)?   I think it is but not certain.

=WORKDAY(EDATE(H67,CHOOSE(MATCH(D68,{"annually","quarterly","semi-annually","monthly"},0),12,3,6,1))-1,1,Holidays_US_Jap)+45

thank you

Yes. Excel stores dates as integers and times as decimals, so to add days to a date, simply add a whole number.

thank you.  Is it adding 45 days because this criteria is outside of the formula?  Meaning that if I wanted to add 45 WORKDAYS then I would need to put it inside the formula?

thank you

^Correct; this adds 45 calendar days to the result of the WORKDAY() function.  If you wanted to add 45 workdays to the result, you'd change the days argument from 1 to 45:
=WORKDAY(EDATE(H67,CHOOSE(MATCH(D68,{"annually","quarterly","semi-annually","monthly"},0),12,3,6,1))-1,45,Holidays_US_Jap)

Note the difference:  If the date in H67 is 11/1/2014 and the measure value in D68 is "monthly" then:
A) The formula without any 45-day change  = 12/1/2014
B) The formula with 45 calendar days = 1/15/2015
C) The formula with 45 workdays = 3/20/2015
