I have a SharePoint list with "Request raised date" and "No. of days" by which the request should be completed.

Now, I want another Date column which adds 'No. of days' to the "Request raised" date resulting in a estimated date of request completion that excludes weekends Saturdays and Sundays.

You can use the formula like below for your calculated date column (estimated date of request completion):

=[Request raised date] + [No. of days] + IF(WEEKDAY([Request raised date],3) < 5, 1 + FLOOR(([No. of days] - 6 + WEEKDAY([Request raised date], 3)) / 5, 1) * 2, 7 - WEEKDAY([Request raised date], 2) + FLOOR(([No. of days] - 1) / 5, 1) * 2)

Reference: Exclude weekends


  1. Sometimes comma(,) does not work in formula (it is based on language or regional settings on your site). So in that case use semicolon(;) instead of comma(,).
  2. Use correct display name of your SharePoint columns in above formula.
  3. Wrap column names inside [] if your column name has space in it. For example: [My Column Name].
