SAP has a range of (released) calendar functions to be found in function group 'SCAL'.
With function module 'date_convert_to_factorydate' it is possible to enter a date and check if this is a workday according to the factory calendar.
Furthermore, if the date is not a working day, it returns the first working day before or after the entered date.
The code was written in 4.0B but should work for all versions until now.
