  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Often you need to add a number of weekdays to a given date (for example, "this form is due 5 weekdays from today"). This function returns for you, given a date and the number of weekdays you want to add, the number of *actual* days to add to your date.

Typically I use it to get another date, so for example to get the date 5 days from today:

Let (
d = Get ( CurrentDate ) ;
GetAsDate ( d + WeekdaysFrom ( d ; 5 ) )
