calculate date excluding weekends and holidays

I need to figure the next available working date using the following formula: date+2. From the result, I need to exclude weekends and holidays and move on to the next available workday. I do have a calendar table built that has fields referencing whether or not it is a weekend or holday. I just don't know how to go about moving forward if the date+2 lands on either a weekend or a holiday.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1 answer: sort voted first

without knowing the exact schema of your tables....

select min(date)
from calendar_table
 date >= @date+2
and isholiday <> 1
and isweekend <> 1

and in English, get the earliest date equal to or greater than date+2 where the weekend and holiday flags aren't set
