Excel formula that excludes Sundays

Would like to use a formula that takes the date in cell A4 and add the # of days in H2 which provides a date in cell H4 BUT I want the formula to include Saturdays and exclude Sunday's in it's calculation.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Try this in H4:


I am guessing you meant 'number of days in H1' rather than 'number of days in H2'?

This finds the date H1 workdays from A4, counting only Sundays as a weekend day (the 'weekend argument' is 11).

Hi Alan, I am getting a circular reference error using the formula you provided.
Bill PrewCommented:
The circular reference is being caused by A4 containing the formula "=H4".  Shouldn't that be an actual date, not a reference to H4?

Hi Bill, yes you're right. I need to change that back to values vs the formula that I have in there.
