NETWORKDAY Function

Returns the number of working days between two dates. Adds 1 day to the result if the start date is a non-working day.
Sample usage
NETWORKDAY([Due Date]4, [Due Date]5)
Syntax
NETWORKDAY(
  • start_date
  • end_date
  • [
    holidays
    ]
)
  • start_date
    The first date to be measured.
  • end_date
    The last date to be measured.
  • holidays
    —[optional]
    The dates to exclude from the count.
Usage notes
  • WORKDAY, NETWORKDAY, and NETWORKDAYS count Saturday and Sunday as non-working days. If you enable dependencies on your sheet, you can customize the non-working days. After you do this, the formulas use your settings in calculations.
  • You can designate additional dates as non-working to exclude them when calculating the number of working days. To do this, enter each holiday/non-working day into a cell. Then reference the range of cells in your NETWORKDAY formula.
