This formula adds 7 workdays days to Tuesday, Dec 22. Three holidays are supplied using the named range “holidays” (B9:B11) and weekends are set using the special syntax “0000000” which means all days in a week are workdays. The result is Thu, December 31, 2015. The weekend argument is supplied as 7 characters that represent Monday-Sunday. Use one (1) to indicate weekend, and zero (0) to indicate a working day. Since we want all days of the week to be considered working days, we use “0000000”.
