# Count Working Days Excluding Weekend and Holidays

Suppose that the user wants to find how many days you work or the next working date after excluding certain days like weekends and holidays.

Query: We have Start Date and End Date. Our task is to get the total number of working days after excluding Sunday.

Formula to Implement:

=NETWORKDAYS.INTL(C2,C3,11)    ’11 is Weekend Parameter

Function applicable:

The Excel NETWORKDAYS.INTL counts the number of days between two dates, excluding custom Weekend days.

Syntax

=NETWORKDAYS.INTL(start_date, end_date, [weekend], [holidays])

Parameters

start_date – First date or string of a date
end_date – Second date or string of a date
weekend [optional] – Setting custom weekend days
holidays [optional] – A list of additional days to be excluded apart from weekends.

Formula Explanation:

=NETWORKDAYS.INTL(C2,C3,11)

Result: 313

It will count all days between Start (01-01-2019) and End (31-12-2019) dates after excluding the weekend (Sunday).

Remember:  By default, it excludes Saturday and Sunday from given dates.

Due to any reason you want to know the next working day after removing custom days and weekends (Saturday and Sunday) from the given dates difference.

Query

Formula to Implement:

Function applicable:

The Excel WORKDAY function calculates a date based on a specified number of working days before and after a given starting date.

## Syntax

=WORKDAY(start_date, days, [holidays])

## Parameters

start_date – The Start date
days – Number working days before or after start_date
holidays [optional] – A list of additional days to exclude apart from weekends.

Result: 26-12-2018

It will show the date after 2 days from the start date (26-12-2018) excluding holidays and weekends (Saturday and Sunday). For naming we use Name Range tool of Excel.
