Specs: Windows 7
I have an Excel 2010 worksheet that has all my inventory. I want to create a plan to count my inventory. I need a formula to show what days each item will be counted. I have 1104 items to count and I am counting 27 per day. If I start my counts on 12/30/13 I want the spreadsheet to calculate the date to count each item and eliminate weekends and holidays. These items will be counted 6 times per year, but I am only looking for the 1st count date for each item. Is this even possible?

An example of how your data is set up would be helpful.

Read this How-To which explains the use of pre tags
and post a small sample of what your sheet looks like.

I need a formula to show what days each item will be counted

Does the inventory need to be counted in a specific order?
or just the first 27 day 1, the next 27 day 2, etc. etc.?

The more info you can supply the better.

Mike is correct is asking for details about your data layout, but just for fun I tried something and it might work for you.

Assuming your data looks like this, use the formula shown in B3 and drag it down. If your "Items" start in a different Row, you will have to change the ROW()-2 part of the formula to whatever works for you.

The date in Column B should change every 27 items and skip Saturday and Sunday dates.

          A                   B
1    Item #/Name             Date
2      1/Name 1             12/30/13
3      2/Name 2             =IF(MOD(ROW()-2,27)=0,WORKDAY(B2,1),B2)
4      3/Name 3             =IF(MOD(ROW()-2,27)=0,WORKDAY(B3,1),B3)
