Add days to a date


Hi, I am trying to create a column that adds a certain number of days to a date.

When I use =[Task start date]@row +7 . It doesn't add 7 days to the date, instead just adds the number 7 to the end of the date.

I have also tried to use the WORKDAY formula as an alternative, =WORKDAY(Task start date]10, 5) . This results in a #INVALID DATA TYPE

The 'Task start date' column and 'Task end date' column are both date columns, and i have tried checking and unchecking the box to restrict to dates only in the column properties and get the same issues.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks :)
