Pandas: Calculate one business day from a specified date

Pandas Time Series: Exercise-27 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to calculate one, two, three business day(s) from a specified date. Also find the next business month end from a specific date.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
from pandas.tseries.offsets import *
import datetime
from datetime import datetime, date
dt = datetime(2020, 1, 4)
print("Specified date:")
print(dt)
print("\nOne business day from the said date:")
obday = dt + BusinessDay()
print(obday)
print("\nTwo business days from the said date:")
tbday = dt + 2 * BusinessDay()
print(tbday)
print("\nThree business days from the said date:")
thbday = dt + 3 * BusinessDay()
print(thbday)
print("\nNext business month end from the said date:")
nbday = dt + BMonthEnd()
print(nbday)

Sample Output:

Specified date:
2020-01-04 00:00:00

One business day from the said date:
2020-01-06 00:00:00
