insert last business days date

In my macro I was using the below:

Dim td As Date
td = Format(Now() - 1, "DD/MM/YYYY")

This would insert the date for yesterday in the cell.

The user needs me to change this to the previous business day.

I know the formula would be =WORKDAY(TODAY(),-1)  but I cannot figure how to change this in the VBA code

Please help.

pls try
Dim td As Date
 td = Format(Application.WorkDay(Date, -1), "DD/MM/YYYY")

Open in new window

EDIT use format if you want "td" to be a string (Dim td As String)
