Are you trying to add 30 days to a given date such that you get a date x days later but skips Saturdays/Sundays?

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.

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?
