Not thoroughly tested..It will give you a starting point, if you dont want to do row generation.. 
2. Re: Find next n workday unique query
Frank Kulash Apr 18, 2013 1:53 PM (in response to muttleychess)Hi,1 person found this helpful
Here's one way:
How this works is that the subquery all_days generates a result set containing the upcoming work days, and the main query merely picks the right one.VARIABLE n_days NUMBER EXEC :n_days := 5; WITH all_days AS ( SELECT SYSDATE + LEVEL AS a_date , ROWNUM AS rnum FROM dual WHERE TO_CHAR ( SYSDATE + LEVEL , 'DY' , 'NLS_DATE_LANGUAGE=ENGLISH' ) NOT IN ('SAT', 'SUN') CONNECT BY LEVEL <= 2 + (:n_days * 7 / 5) ) SELECT a_date FROM all_days WHERE rnum = :n_days ;
The tricky part is making sure that the subquery gerenates enough days. Since there are 5 work days in every 7 consecutive days, then (normally) the nth work day will come in the next n * 7/5 days. However, if you run this on a weekend, or right before a weekend, then the 2 days of that weekend may interfere wil that calculation, so I added 2 days to guarantee that all_days has enough days.

when 'saturday' then 1 when 'sunday' then 2

You could test it and change it accordingly..

Manik Apr 19, 2013 4:33 AM (in response to jeneesh)I know this is already answered...
May be even this works  modify that digit 5 based on your requirement.. (Tried to make it look simple)
(Did not check all the test cases though)
Cheers,WITH t AS ( SELECT COUNT ( CASE WHEN TO_CHAR (SYSDATE + ROWNUM, 'fmDY') IN ('SAT', 'SUN') THEN 1 END) cnt FROM DUAL CONNECT BY ROWNUM <= 5) SELECT SYSDATE + 5 + cnt + MOD (cnt, 2) FROM t;
