Workday And Network Day Formula Challenge

I am trying to create a sheet for a project that will identify dates a project will conclude omitting weekends and holidays. I keep getting an error with the formula I have.

In my spreadsheet:
A1 is the start date
B1 is the number of days after the start date.

The formula I am using:
=WORKDAY(A1,NETWORKDAYS(A1,A1+B1),{""4/6/2007","5/28/2007", "7/4/2007","9/3/2007","11/22/2007","12/25/2007","1/1/2008","1/21/2008","3/21/2008","5/26/2008", "7/4/2008","9/1/2008","11/27/2008","12/25/2008"}"}+0)

The error I get is with the parens (A1,A1+B1). - at least the parens are highlighted in purple.

Force Formulae Recalculation & Return Day Name From Workday Function
I'm trying to make a schedule of deposits made for the month of March 2008. (Deposits are made on a daily basis.) With this, I wanted to know when the deposit would clear with the bank using the WORKDAY formula given that I have to count 6 banking days after the date of deposit (Saturdays and Sundays excluded).

I'm using Mac and I recently upgraded to Office 2008 (never tried WORKDAY formula in other versions). I am aware of the syntax used for this formula and it works just fine in other cases. But I noticed that with start_dates falling on a Thursday or Friday of the week, Excel would give me a result date that falls on a Sunday, which is odd given that it's supposed to ignore non-working days or weekends. (I haven't even gotten to inputting holidays yet.)

Workday Function/Formula Ignoring Weekends
I'm at my wits end trying to make a workday formula work, but am having no luck. I've searched the other posts, but did not quite find a match. I'm trying to subtract a number of days from a workday function, but it seems to bypass ignoring the weekends (as is supposed to be done automatically with Workday). Here's the formula I'm trying to use:

=WORKDAY(H5,L5,' Reference Info'!$E$110:$E$117)-(I5/8)

I5/8 is a column with hours - this just calculates a number of days to subtract based on the number of scheduled hours.

The formula will calculate, but it still ignores weekends. I've tried burying the I5/8 within the parenthesis, moving it around in the formula,

Day Accrual Formula
I need to make a formula that will accrue vacation days automatically.

We accrue days on the 15th of the month( If you start on February 15th, you have accrued the days for February).

If the person has been here for 3 years they accrue 15 days a year.

If they've been here for 7 years, they accrue 23 days.

If they've been here for 10 years they accrue 30 days a year.

All days are accrued evenly over the 12 months.

For example If someone started 3 years ago on March 3rd, starting March of 2007, they will be accruing 23/12 days a month, but for January and February, they will accrue 15/12 days a month.

The formula must work off their start date.

Last Working Day Of Month Formula
I am trying to create a formula to work out the last working day of each month, but I can't come up with anything that is less than the 1,024 formula limit. I am using a UK calendar so the only two holidays to effect the last working day of the month will be Easter and the last Monday in May.

This is the formula I am using which takes account of Easter, the checking for the last Monday in May is simple enough in another column, but I would rather keep it in one column, just wondering whether there is a simpler way of doing this.

A1 is a specified date and then I would like to work out the last working day of the month, on a new row, for up to the next 50 years....

This would be considered a rolling 90 days, so older variances drop off after 90 days, they would still be left on screen but would not effect the main total.

Formula Columns Where My Workers Record The Amounts Of Work They Do During The Day
I have three columns where my workers record the amounts of work they do during the day. The columns are labelled as follows:

Column A – “Correspondences’’
Column B – “Linking’’
Column C – “Allocating”

When a task has been completed an “X’’ is put in the relevant column (which is then summed at the bottom). I use these sums to calculate each workers productivity in the following way – number of “x’’ divided by number of days worked. This is a simple formula, however, each “x” now equates to time – which is causing me problems. An “x’’ is Column A equals 1 hour, Column B 1 hour and Column C 2 hours.

I am looking for someone to help me create a formula which will calculate all possibilities in the above situation above. Please bear in mind that a worker can do one of these tasks during the course of a week, two or all three .

Calculating If A Period Is During A Workday
I have two dates in this format:

start: 17.07.2009 11:00:00
end: 17.07.2009 14:00:00

i need to check if the period in between those is during a workday.

our workday starts at 10:00:00 and finishes at 19:00:00

so my expected result is 3 hours. (1400-1100)

other example:

start: 17.07.2009 11:00:00
end: 18.07.2009 11:00:00

result is 1900-1100 + 1100-1000

= 9 hours

because it is during two workdays...

is there a way to calculate this in VBA?

Workday Function Or Similar
This is probably a simple question, but one I can't figure out after several hours. I am creating a spreadsheet focused on certifications.

I need to take the date each initial certification was achieved, and add x years to each cert, which is simple enough.

The sticky part is that the (date + x years) can't logically be a weekend; if it is, I need to subtract one or two days from the result, so that it's the *weekday* immediately prior.

e.g. if my initial certification date is: 1/23/2006 and my certifcation expires in four 4 years:

A47= date(2006,1,23)
h47= 10


Result = Saturday, January 23, 2010

If the result is a Saturday or Sunday, I need to subtract one or two days from the date. In this example, I'd like: Friday, January 22, 2010 as the result.

I've been playing with 'if', et. al., to no avail.

Workday Holiday Trigger Date
I am trying to work out a formula calculating dates.

basically a piece of work / report is due for completion twenty working days from a trigger date. And I need the formula to calculate this due date. Im using the workday function, which calculates a date using the number of working days given after the trigger date.

this would work fine, except that the trigger date needs to be included in the calculation (inclusive). I have tried changing the value for the number of working days to nineteen, which would logically give the right answer (20 days including the trigger day). BUT the bloody thing doesnt work, because the trigger date can be on a weekend or holiday!! so then it calculates 19 days (as it should) but the result is wrong because the trigger day isnt included (as its a holiday/weekend).

Function That Is The Equivalent Of WORKDAY But For Hours Instead
I am in need of some excel advice relating to date calculations. Basically I need a function that is the equivalent of WORKDAY but for hours instead. I have a series of events that take a certain length of time to complete, most of them less than a day but some more than. By way of example see the screenshot below:

In reality the last three operations would have to take place on the 27th of April, with the Welding operation starting on the end of the 25th around 7pm. The plant is running a 24 hour day, and works 5 days a week. How can I calculate the times in hours offset rather than going day by day? I need to account for

* Weekends
* Fixed Holidays
* Operations running as seamlessly as possible

Any advice welcome. I have attempted to use WORKDAY with the number of days to deduct rounded to the nearest day and then subtracting the operation time but this results in errors where operations would cumulatively go over a working day. The objective is by knowing when the end product is needed and knowing how long each operation takes it is possible to discover when to start manufacture. VBA or Formula code is fine as this will be integrated into a VBA project.

I'm looking for a function similar to =WORKDAY but with a slight variation.

I want the formula to return the date that is the closest non-weekend, non-holiday day that is a specific number of CALENDAR days from the start date. So the formula does not return weekend or holiday days, but does include them when counting the days away from the start date.

For example if the start date was Dec 1st, and I specified 14 days after this date, I would want Dec 15th returned (as the 14th is a weekend).
