Excel formula to output date

Greetings,
I have a two columns of dates
1. column 1 has the date a file goes to the press to print
2. column 2 has the date the file prints

In column two, the date is almost always the same as the date in column 1, except if the date in column 1 is a weekend date (Saturday, Sunday)

Is there a phase (formula) which would be suitable to put in column2, with the above parameters?

Thank you,
JohnD

You can use something like this, enter the formula in cell B1:

=IF(OR(WEEKDAY(A1)=1,WEEKDAY(A1)=7),IF(WEEKDAY(A1)=1,A1+1,A1+2),A1)

If the date in Column1 is a SATURDAY or SUNDAY, the Column2 date would be the following Monday.
If the date in Column1 is a MONDAY through FRIDAY, the Column2 date would be same day.

In the formula, you can adjust the cell 'A1' to start where your data starts. Copy down to all the necessary rows in your sheet.
