Calculate start date back from del. date

Recommended Posts


I would like to know if anyone has a simple calculation to work out a start date back from a delivery date required, based upon the number of working days a project would take e.g.

If delivery date must be 31st Aug 2007 and it would take 12 working days to produce the project, then result = it must be started by 16th Aug 2007.

Any help would be much appreciated.

shipByDate ( startDate ; numberOfDays ; satuday)

//name: shipByDate

//purpose: returns the day you need to ship by in order for your package to arrive by the date provided


//startDate: (the initial date)

//numberOfDays: (how many WORKING days after the start date)

//saturday: if saturday = "y" then saturday IS a working day, otherwise not.

Let(v=If(saturday="y"; "2,3,4,5,6,7";"2,3,4,5,6")


If(Filter ( DayOfWeek(startDate-1) ; v ); 

If(numberOfDays -1=0;startDate-1;
