Experts, I need to modify the below for a date that lands on Jan 15 and July 15 of each year.  The below is for 60 days after and I need to make the modification to my new criteria.  I thought I could simply delete the +60 but that does not solve it.  

I also need to use the PREVIOUS workday and not the next workday.  
thank you.

=WORKDAY(DATE(YEAR(H207),CHOOSE(MONTH(H207),IF(DAY(H207)>15,7,1),7,7,7,7,7,IF(DAY(H207)>15,13,7),13,13,13,13,13),15+60)-1,1,Holidays_US_Jap)

Is this correct? You want Jan 15 and July 15, but the previous workday?

If so:

=WORKDAY(DATE(YEAR(H207),CHOOSE(MONTH(H207),IF(DAY(H207)>15,7,1),7,7,7,7,7,IF(DAY(H207)>15,13,7),13,13,13,13,13),15),-1,Holidays_US_Jap)

Hi Philip,

Maybe it makes a difference if I am dragging the formula down?  
I dont seem to get what I am after as the same date appears in each cell.  

Please see attached.

thank you

the display should be either Jan 15 or July 15 of that year taking into account the holiday tab and workday (not weekends).  You can see from the excel attached it is not.

Insert in A2 and copy down this formula, to get the last workday before the next Jan 15 or July 15.
=WORKDAY(DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+6,15),-1,Holidays_US_Jap)

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hello Ejgil, I was just posting something almost identical! I think the 15 should be a 16, though, so that you will actually get the 15th when it isn't a holiday or weekend

regards, barry

I used 15 because the question said
need to use the PREVIOUS workday
,
for a date that lands on Jan 15 and July 15 of each year
Perhaps I misunderstood :)
