Let us assume that we have to determine a specific date, 6 Months In advance, which must also occur on a working day, we have to use a combination of the Excel WORKDAY and EDATE Functions.
The Excel WORKDAY and EDATE Functions do not recognize weekends.
How to use the WORKDAY and EDATE Functions in Excel.
- Arrange the dates to be referred to in a labeled column of our worksheet.
Be sure to provide another column containing holiday dates.
See example illustrated below;
Figure 2. Next Business Day 6 Months In Future Excel.
- The formula in cell B2 of our worksheet example is as follows;
Figure 3. Next Business Day 6 Months In Future Excel.
Operating from within, the EDATE Function, first determines a date 6 months in advance,
It then subtracts 1 to generate a result which goes to the WORKDAY function.
Taking into account holidays and weekends, the WORKDAY function then determines the actual next business day, occurring 1 day in advance.
- Enter a modified version of our formula in cell B2 into cell B3;
Figure 4. Next Business Day 6 Months In Future Excel.
Neither of the Excel WORKDAY and EDATE Functions take weekends into account during their calculations.
