Hi Swapna,

If today() = 3,Wednesday = add 3 days = Monday      (exclude Saturday,Sunday = 2days).
If today() = 4,Thursday     = add 3 days = Tuesday      (exclude Saturday,Sunday = 2 days).
If today() = 5,Friday          = add 3 days = Wednesday (exclude Saturday,Sunday  = 2days).
If today() = 6,Saturday      = add 3 days = Wednesday (exclude Sunday  = 1days).

Case else logic:
If today() =  monday = just  add 3 days = Thursday    ( no need to exclude Saturday,Sunday = 2days).
If today() =  Tuesday =just   add 3 days = Friday        (no need  to exclude Saturday,Sunday = 2days).

Can you please Let me know if it helps or not!!!

Hi Swapna,

The formula exclude the weekends and add the three days:

If the Today is wednesday then it will add the 3 days that is thursday,Friday then display the date as Monday which ecxlude the Satuday and Sunday.

CASE( MOD( date - DATE( 1900, 1, 7 ), 7 ), 0, "Sunday", 1, "Monday", 2, "Tuesday", 3, "Wednesday", 4, "Thursday", 5, "Friday", "Saturday" )

Can you please Let me know if it works or not!!!
