I know the below uses the preceding but I am not certain how to chagne it to the following workday if the date lands on a weekend or holiday.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Generically your original formula gets the calculated date, adds 1 and then gets the previous WORKDAY.....but you now need to get the calculated date, subtract 1 and get the next WORKDAY, so for that the +1 becomes -1 and the 1 becomes -1, i.e.

Hello, I am out of town at the moment.  Is one better than the other?  

Thank you

The results will be different in some cases - I'm assuming that if you add 6 months to the date in H196 and then add 60 days, then if that day is, for example, a Thursday (which isn't a holiday) then you want the formula to return that date. That's what my formula does - but if the date you land on is a holiday or weekend day the formula will give you the following workday.

Phillips's version will always give you the following workday, so if the original date you land on is a Thursday my version will return that date, Phillip's will give you the Friday.
