NETWORKDAYS.INTL(start_date, end_date, [weekends], [holidays])
- start_date - The date from which the calculation is carried out.
- end_date - The date up to which the calculation is carried out.
- weekends - [OPTIONAL] A string or number representing which days of the week are considered weekends.
- Weekends can be specified using a string comprising of 0’s and 1’s, where a zero means that the day is a work day, and a 1 means that the day is a weekend. The first number in the set represents Monday. So, “0000011” would mean Saturday and Sunday are weekends.
- You can also specify the weekend pattern using a single number.
- 1 = Saturday and Sunday are weekends
- 2 = Sunday and Monday are weekends and so on until
- 7 = Friday and Saturday are weekends.
- 11 = Sunday is the only weekend
- 12 = Monday is the only weekend and so on until
- 17 = Saturday is the only weekend.
- holidays - [OPTIONAL] A cell range containing the list of holidays.
NETWORKDAYS.INTL(DATE(1969,7,16),DATE(1969,7,24)) returns the number of workdays between the mentioned dates, which is 7.
NETWORKDAYS.INTL(C5,C6,2,A1:A10) returns the number of workdays between the mentioned dates, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays specified in A1:A10.
- NETWORKDAYS.INTL does not auto-convert number formats. Therefore, NETWORKDAYS.INTL(10/10/2000) is interpreted as NETWORKDAYS.INTL(0.05) , the quotient of 10 divided by 10 divided by 2000.
- NETWORKDAYS.INTL is similar to NETWORKDAYS, but it allows weekend days to be specified for areas where Saturday and Sunday are not considered the weekend.
- NETWORKDAYS.INTL calculates the number of work days between two dates. To calculate the working day a specific number of days ahead of a date, use WORKDAY.INTL.
