    Count Days EXCLUDING ONLY Sundays and a named range for Holidays

    Hello!

    I'm struggling to find a way to count the number of days between 2 dates excluding only Sundays and a named range for Holidays.

    =Networkdays(B2,A2,Holidays) does not work (as shown) as it also excludes Saturdays. Essentially, this program is to count delivery days for U.S. mail.

    An example spreadsheet is attached which provides a bit more clarity as to what I'm trying to accomplish.ExcelForum - Count_Days.xlsx

    Using Excel 2010.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much!!!

    Or try:
    =NETWORKDAYS(A2,B2,Holidays)+INT((B2-A2-WEEKDAY(B2-6)+8)/7)

    Re: Count Days EXCLUDING ONLY Sundays and a named range for Holidays

    ExcelForum - Count_Days - Rev1.xlsxI've been playing with both suggestions above and can't get either to work for excluding Sundays. They both work when a holiday is involved, but no matter what I do I can't get them to "account for" Sundays.

    See the revised spreadsheet example attached. Whether using a simple formula (=B2-A2) or one of the suggestions above, both show 3 days when the actual result should be 2 since Jan 05 is a Sunday.

    Am I doing something wrong (wouldn't be the first time)???

    Thanks, again!!!

    Re: Count Days EXCLUDING ONLY Sundays and a named range for Holidays

    Netowrkdays is INCLUSIVE, meaning it counts BOTH the start date AND the end date.
    So your dates in A2 and B2 are from Friday to Monday
    Excluding only Sunday, then it counts Friday Saturday and Monday = 3

    To correct for this, either add 1 to the start date, or subract 1 from the end date
    Depending on if you want to exclude the Start or End date..

    Exclude Start Date from the count
    =NETWORKDAYS.INTL(A2+1,B2,11,Holidays)

    Exclude End Date from the count
    =NETWORKDAYS.INTL(A2,B2-1,11,Holidays)

    Hope that helps.

    You're welcome..

    FYI,

    DON'T do it this way
    =NETWORKDAYS.INTL(A2,B2,11,Holidays)-1
    That could have inaccurate results..

    Always Add to the start date or Subtract from the End date.
