how do i create a formula to give a workday date?

I am trying to set up a worksheet the gives me a date during the work week 
that is 5 work days, 10 workdays, etc from the date that is entered.

I also want the cells to result in TBD until the first date is input.

Here is an example of the formula I created that gives me TBD but not a 
workday date.

Note the workday formula will take a third argument that is a range that 
contains and holiday dates you want to exclude


A1:a10 can contain holiday dates

When competing hypotheses are otherwise equal, adopt the hypothesis that 
introduces the fewest assumptions while still sufficiently answering the

The question is whether you want the first workday after h28+14, or do you want
to add 14 workdays to h28.

If the former:


If the latter:

Incorrect formula
Would appreciate help with my formula. I only want the 1 to be added to L28 and L29 if they have a value greater than 0. this formula produces 2 even if all the cells have nothing in them, but I need there to be nothing in the cell if no values are in any cells. If the value of every cell in the formula was 1 then my answer should be 14 but if cell L28 is 0 then the answer should be 12, and if neither L28 or L29 has a value then the answer should be 10, but because of the =1 in my formula I get an answer that is 12.(or 2 greater than I want if values are in other cells) Help appre...

Second Request: change date for electronic payment
I am a new Money user....was with Quicken for 10+ years. I want to change the date of electronic payments in my register to be the same day that the payment is scheduled to be made. It looks as though the only thing that can be changed is the category. In Quicken you are able to change the date for electronic payments in the register without changing the actual day the bill is being paid. When this is done in Quicken you simply get a message telling you that the change will only occur in the register. I do not like the way Money assumes that it's a good idea to set the date about...

Month End Date Ticks
Hello, In Excel 2003 I could use daily data starting on, say, 31 Dec 2005 and ending some years later for a line chart. If in the x-axis settings I selected both Major and Minor units to 3 Months with Base units as Days I would get ticks at each calender quarter end. In this example; 31 Dec 2005, 31 Mar 2006, 30 Jun 2006, and so on. However, in Excel 2007 the axis switches over to start of month ticks; 31 Dec 2005, 31 Mar 2006, 1 Jul 2006, and so on.

when form created
I have a form which was created by someone else (not a form template) which is like a questionnaire with empty boxes to be completed.

I suspect this is set up as a table with auto resizing enabled. Displaying table gridlines (Table | Show Gridlines) will help you see what you're dealing with. Then select the table, go to the Table tab of Table Properties, click Options, and clear the check box for "A...
