Subtract business days from a date excluding public holidays

You can add a certain number of business days to an existing date by using the WORKDAY.INTL function.
The public holidays that we want to exclude are in cells "A3:A5".


Cell "A1" displays the current date. Custom format "dddd dd mmmm yyyy".
Cell "A2" displays the current date and time. Custom format "dddd dd mmmm yyyy hh:mm:ss".
Cell "A3" displays 2 business days before the date in cell "A1".
Cell "A4" displays 4 business days before the date in cell "A1".
Cell "A5" displays 6 business days before the date in cell "A1".
Cell "A6" displays the date that is 5 business days before the date in cell "A1" excluding the 3 public holidays.
