Usage Notes
  • WORKDAY, NETWORKDAY, and NETWORKDAYS count Saturday and Sunday as non-working days. If dependencies are enabled on your sheet you can customize the non-working days, and the formulas will use your settings in calculations.

This example references the following sheet information:

  Clothing Item Order Date Ship Date % Complete
1 T-Shirt 02/12/19 02/15/19 100%
2 Pants 02/15/19 03/20/19 50%
3 Jacket 02/20/19 02/27/19 75%

Given the table above, here are some examples of using NETWORKDAYS in a sheet:
