# 60 days after every Jan and July 15, add workday

Experts, I have another question.  The below returns 60 days after each Jan and July 15 based on now().  I need to change the Now() to a cell reference and need to add WORKDAY criteria.  I have fiddled around with it to no avail.

here is what I have now.
=DATE(YEAR(NOW()),CHOOSE(MONTH(NOW()),IF(DAY(NOW())>15,7,1),7,7,7,7,7,IF(DAY(NOW())>15,13,7),13,13,13,13,13),15+60)

thank you

Philip, thanks.  I am needing to move away from the NOW part of it (in the IF) and instead refer to a cell above it.  I am going to be dragging the formula down and referring the the cell above.  Not sure what all the change if after knowing this.

Thank you for the help once again...
