Setting a date, excluding weekends

Setting a date, excluding weekends

Setting a date, excluding weekends

Hi there:
I have a  database that reports on production batches, with a specified batch date. Some batches cannot be made on the date specified so I want to reschedule forwards by 1 day those that are not complete.
However I need to exclude weekends and bank holidays. I am using a separate, joined, table to store dates and this table holds day of week . Saturday sunday and bank holiday are set at 6,7, and 9.
So technically I should be able to use a TCursor to locate the date in the dates database that matches today in the batch database, and move to the next date (where DOW <6) and reset the batch date  with the next active date.  I am struggling with the 'where' bit...Could anybody point me to the right code ?
