This formula adds 7 days to the date in B7, excluding Tuesdays and Thursdays.
How this formula works
The WORKDAY.INTL function is based on the WORKDAY function, which is designed to add work days to a date. WORKDAY automatically excludes Saturday and Sunday, and optionally can exclude a list of custom holidays. The WORKDAY.INTL does the same thing, but makes it possible to exclude any days of the week, in addition to holidays.
To exclude specific days of the week you can either use a pre-configured code (see this page for a full list of presets) or provide your own "pattern code". The pattern code must be 7 digits long and have either a zero for each day of the week, starting on Monday and ending on Sunday. Values equal to 1 are excluded, and days with zero values are treated normally.
So, assuming you want to add 7 days to a date in cell A1, you can write formulas like this:
If you need to add or subtract business days (workdays) to a date so that you can calculate a date in the future or past that skips weekends (and holidays), you can use the WORKDAY function. Holidays are optional. In the example, the formula in D6...

The Excel WORKDAY.INTL function takes a date and returns the nearest working in the future or past, based on an offset value you provide. Unlike the WORKDAY function, WORKDAY.INTL allows...
