## Date Function (DAX)

I am after a DAX function I can enter into a new collumn into my Dataset that will look at a data field in the same dataset and will give me a date value 2 days from that date.

The kicker is i need it to not include weekends as it needs to be business days only.

Thankyou.

You may check the DAX below.

```Column =
VAR d = USERS[HDATE]
RETURN
MINX (
FILTER (
USERS,
DATEDIFF ( d, USERS[HDATE], DAY ) >= 2
&& NOT ( WEEKDAY ( USERS[HDATE] ) IN { 1, 7 } )
),
USERS[HDATE]
)
```

Thanks for this,  there is only one issue i am seeing and that is that if a day is monday for example i have a HDate that is the 10th od December it is giving me a date of the 14th which is four days not 2 days passed the HDATE,  do you know why that would be?

I believe that something like this will work with everything unless your original date is on a weekend. Could add a check for that if necessary and adjust.

```Column =
VAR __days = 2
VAR __futureDays = __days + 2
RETURN
IF(COUNTX(__table,[Date])>__days+1,[Date]+2,MAXX(__table,[Date]))```

Thanks Greg,

I am not as proficient in Power BI as your good self,  i was wondering if you are able to highlight the areas i need to change to fit.

My collumns are HDATE and the Table is called USERS.

Also the date from will always be in the week so that should not be a problem.

Also i forgot to mention HDATE may contain some blanks so this may need to be taken into consideration.
