I'm not quite sure what you are asking for here. Are you trying to add 30 days to a given date such that you get a date x days later but skips Saturdays/Sundays?

Cool

Based on the original post, I'm thinking you want something like this:



declare @TestDate date = '20120101',
@DaysToAdd int = 8;

select
@TestDate,
@DaysToAdd,
dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate),
datepart(wk,dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate)),
dateadd(dd, datepart(wk,dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate)) - 1, dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate));

You are going to have to tell me more than that it doesn't work. If I give it 2012-01-01 and 30 days, it returns 2012-02-04, just like you posted.


Maybe it doesn't satisify your actual requirements, but you really aren't giving us much to work with. We need the DDL (CREATE TABLE) statement for your table, some sample data as a seried of INSERT INTO statements, and the expected results based on the sample data. With that information you will get a better answer.

This appears to work if you stay in the same year:



declare @TestDate date = '20120201',
@DaysToAdd int = 30;

select
@TestDate,
@DaysToAdd,
dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate),
datepart(wk,dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate)),
datepart(wk,@TestDate),
dateadd(dd, datepart(wk,dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate)) - datepart(wk,@TestDate), dateadd(dd, @DaysToAdd, @TestDate));

As I think about this more, your apparent requirement is that everytime you cross Sunday you need to add an additional day, correct?

Example, if the startdate is 2012-11-30 (a Friday) and you add 3 days you would normally get 2012-12-03 (a Monday). What you want, however, is to get 2012-12-04 (a Tuesday). Is this correct?

Edit: And you probably want this to work over a year boundary as well, correct?
