Calculate weekdays between two dates (Excel97)
I want to calculate the number of weekdays between two dates in Excel. Is there a built-in way of doing this, or do I have to write my own code?

Re: Calculate weekdays between two dates (Excel97)
If you just want the number of days between the dates, subtract one from the other. For example, if A1 contains 4-Mar-2004 and A2 contains 22-Feb-2004, the formula =A1-A2 will return 11 (after clearing the format - Excel has an annoying habit of formatting the difference between dates as a date too.)
If you want the number of working days between two dates, use the NETWORKDAYS function from the Analysis Toolpak add-in that comes with Excel. In the above example, =NETWORKDAYS(A2,A1) will return 9.
- NETWORKDAYS includes both the start date and end date in the count. If you don't want to count both, subtract one from the result.
- NETWORKDAYS has an optional third argument to specify holidays; see the online help.
