Hi! Welcome to community!

For calculating business days…

For adding 2 days…



Another solution:

Can you try the following expression?

dateTimeVar = DateTime.ParseExact(yourStringFromGetText,"dd/MM/yyyy",System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)

resultDateTime = dateTimeVar.AddDays(Enumerable.Range(1,2).Sum(Function(i) if({DayOfWeek.Saturday,DayOfWeek.Sunday}.Contains(dateTimeVar.AddDays(i).DayOfWeek),2,1)))

If you need string, use ToString like resultDateTime.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")

If there is possibility your string contains extra whitespace, please use Trim method as the following.

dateTimeVar = DateTime.ParseExact(yourStringFromGetText.Trim,"dd/MM/yyyy",System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)


Don’t use Get Text for Excel. Use Read Range to read the sheet into a datatable. Then manipulate the data in the datatable to what you want. Then Write Range back to the sheet.
