Generate schedule date sequence excluding weekends

I've gone through other posts regarding date diffs & calculated # weekdays & assigning next valid work days (many thanks!), but I don't see something quite like what I need.

I am trying to create a way to generate a schedule of begin and end dates for sequential tasks on a job, each of which have some assigned # of days, beginning with a given date and excluding weekend dates.  So for job "x" starting on Friday, 11/01 I need:

63141611/20/201911/22/2019     

 

I can get the begin and end dates I need within first scheduled week (accommodating 1 weekend) with given calculated start/stop DateAdds, but then I hit a roadblock in trying to accommodate multiple weekends which may be incorporated into the overall job schedule.

Any tips?

Thanks!

Hi @v-monli-msft ,

I ended up taking a different approach to the problem.  Rather than try to work out some convoluted calculation, I made a SQL table of calendar dates excluding weekends and used that to pull in start/stop dates.

 

Thanks for the response though!
