Excel/Excel Workday Question


Please help me.  I am trying to create a formula to help me auto populate time sheets.  I have a date in cell B9.  

I need the first business day of the month to populate in cell B14, the second business day of the month to populate in cell B15, the third business day of the month to populate in cell B16 and so forth through cell B36.  

I only want the timesheet to reflect dates for that particular month.  (Example:  February timesheet should only reflect February dates).

The formula I am currently using in B14 is:

Unfortunately if the month starts on a Saturday or Sunday it populates in B14.  What can I do to fix this issue?

I think this discussion

may provide you with what you need - though I may be mistaken.  As long as B14 needs to have the first working day, it SHOULD be right.

I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!


My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
