Create a table with a 5 day range without weekend days

Hi,

 

So i am trying to calculate the following but im stuck.
I want to create a table that always shows 5 dates.
The dates should change depending on the current day and it should always be the previous 2 working days, the current day, and the next 2 working days.

Everytime i try to create something it either is missing dates or shows a friday next week instead of last.
sometimes i get it right for 1 day but the next it is messed up or it suddenly shows 8 days instead of 5.

For example:

if Today = Monday:
- Last Thursday
- Last Friday
- Monday(Today)
- Next Tuesday
- Next Wednesday

if Today = Tuesday
- Last Friday
- Last Monday
- Tuesday(Today)
- Next Wednesday
- Next Thursday

if Today = Wednesday
- Last Monday
- Last Tuesday
- Wednesday (Today)
- Next Thursday
- Next Friday

Thank you for the help in advance 🙂 

Edit1 : Code added

5 days = 
VAR CurrentDate = TODAY()
VAR CustomCalendar =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        FILTER (
            CALENDAR ( CurrentDate - 2, CurrentDate + 2 ),
            WEEKDAY ( [Date], 2 ) >= 1 && WEEKDAY ( [Date], 2 ) <= 5
        ),
        "DayOfWeek", WEEKDAY ( [Date], 2),
        "FormattedDate", FORMAT([Date], "ddd dd-MM")
    )
RETURN
    CustomCalendar


This gives the following result

While my expected result is
12-10-2023
13-10-2023
16-10-2023
17-10-2023
18-10-2023

And this should change per day

Hello, @Intellar,

do it in power query like this.

 

New query -> Blank Query -> go to Advanced Editor and paste this:

 

let
    today = Date.From(DateTime.FixedLocalNow()),
    start = today - #duration(8,0,0,0),
    end = today + #duration(8,0,0,0),
    listDates = List.Dates(start, Number.From(end-start)+1, #duration(1,0,0,0) ),
    removeWeekends = List.Select(listDates, each  not List.Contains({"Sunday", "Saturday"}, Date.DayOfWeekName( Date.From(_), "en"))),
    positionOfToday = if List.PositionOf(removeWeekends, today) = -1 then  List.PositionOf(removeWeekends, List.Max(List.Select(removeWeekends, each Date.From(_) < today ))) else  List.PositionOf(removeWeekends, today),
    correctPositions = {positionOfToday-2..positionOfToday+2},
    finalList = List.Transform(correctPositions, each removeWeekends{_} ),
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(finalList, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Converted to Table",{{"Column1", type date}}),
    #"Renamed Columns" = Table.RenameColumns(#"Changed Type",{{"Column1", "Date"}})

in
    #"Renamed Columns"

I edited the query, there was bug in case of weekends, thanks @Ahmedx  for pointing out.

look what happens if today is today = #date(2023, 10, 22) or today = #date(2023, 10, 21)

@Ahmedx Very good point, I didn't check for weekened, thanks, I edited the solution.

@vojtechsima this seems to be the solution thanks for the help!

Thanks for the feedback, appreciate the kudos.

Thank you for your input but my post was incomplete and that might made it harder to understand.
I added my current code and results could you please check again if you have a moment?
