DateAdd Function adding only business days

DateAdd Function adding only business days

DateAdd Function adding only business days

I thought that the following would only add 10 to the week days (business days M-F) but it is adding 10 days including weekends. Is there another way, easy way? I've seen a lot of coding examples but I thought there would be an interval setting that could be used?
Here's my example:

RE: DateAdd Function adding only business days

With 10 days you'll always have a weekend in there, possibly 2. I'd write a switch function based on the day of the week that you're starting with.
Switch(format("ddd",[tbl_Item_Detail_Calcs]![Item_Setup_Clock_Start]) = "Sat", DateAdd("w",14,[tbl_Item_Detail_Calcs]![Item_Setup_Clock_Start]),
format("ddd",[tbl_Item_Detail_Calcs]![Item_Setup_Clock_Start]) = "Sun", DateAdd("w",13,[tbl_Item_Detail_Calcs]![Item_Setup_Clock_Start]), format("ddd",[tbl_Item_Detail_Calcs]![Item_Setup_Clock_Start]) = "Mon", DateAdd("w",12,[tbl_Item_Detail_Calcs]![Item_Setup_Clock_Start]), etc.)
I hope that helps.

You could use a Function from here to calculate business days M-F.

Have fun.

Thanks Andrzejek! At first I wasn't sure what "TheDate" represented but it works like a charm!
And Laurie, I had never used the Switch function so thanks for teaching me that!
