Hi Experts,

Can anyone tweak this code, below, to work with a negative date input to subtract business days from a given date?


ALTER function [dbo].[DateAddWorkDay]
(@days int,@FromDate Date)
returns Date
declare @result date
set @result = (
select b
       (DATEDIFF(dd, a, b))
      -(DATEDIFF(wk, a, b) * 2)
      -(CASE WHEN DATENAME(dw, a) = 'Sunday' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)
      -(CASE WHEN DATENAME(dw, b) = 'Saturday' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)
      as workday
    @FromDate as a,
    dateadd(DAY,num +@days,@FromDate) as b
    from (select row_number() over (order by (select NULL)) as num
          from Information_Schema.columns
         ) t
    where num <= 100 
    ) dt
    left join Holiday o on o.Holiday between a and b and DATENAME(dw, o.Holiday) not in('Saturday','Sunday') 
    where DATENAME(dw, b) not in('Saturday','Sunday')
          and b not in (select Holiday from Holiday where Holiday between a and b) 

    group by a,b
) du
where workday =@days 

return @result
