The Excel Workday.Intl function returns a date that is a supplied number of working days (excluding weekends and holidays) ahead of a given start date. The function allows the user to specify which days are counted as weekends.
The function is new in Excel 2010 and so is not available in earlier versions of Excel. However, it is similar to the Workday function, which is available in earlier versions of Excel.
The format of the Workday.Intl function is:
|start_date||-||The initial date, from which to count the number of workdays|
|days||-||The number of workdays to add onto start_date|
|[weekend]||-||An optional argument, which specifies which weekdays should be counted as weekends. This can be either a number or a string. These are explained below:|
|[holidays]||-||An optional argument, which specifies an array of dates (in addition to weekends) that are not to be counted as working days|
Note that the start_date and [holidays] arguments should be input as either:

Warning: Although you can input date arguments as date serial numbers, this is not recommended as date serial numbering does vary across different computer systems.
