Hi All - 

 

I am trying to fumble my way through a project timeline in excel.  See screenshot below.  I'm using a start date, plus a duration to create a schedule template.  How do I get it to recognize weekends/holidays?  The threads I found in search seemed to be about counting days in a specific range.  Thank you in advance for the help.

You can use WORKDAY() to calculate dates and NETWORKDAYS() to calculate duration.  

you can also exclude your holidays too along with weekends.
