Networkdays.INTL

As my international followers have reminded me, not every place sets aside two whole days for the weekend, nor does everyone use the same days of the week.
  • For Afghanistan, Egypt, and Pakistan their weekend starts Thursday at sunset, running from Friday through Saturday.
  • In Malaysia, based upon which part of the country your in, it’s either Saturday thru Sunday, or Friday thru Saturday.
  • Brunei Darussalam‘s non-contiguous weekend is on Friday and Sunday.
  • Costa Rica, North Korea and Uganda get only one day, Sunday, as a weekend.

As a follow-up to last week’s post here’s the international solution to calculating workdays.

NETWORKDAYS.INTL

Returns the number of whole workdays between two dates using parameters to indicate which and how many days are weekend days. Weekend days and any days that are specified as holidays are not considered as workdays.

Syntax

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

  • Start_date and End_date (required). The dates for which the difference is to be computed.
  • Weekend (optional). A number value indicates the days of the week that are weekend days and are not included in the number of working. Below are the values and their corresponding weekdays.
Number Value Weekend days
1 or omitted Saturday, Sunday
2 Sunday, Monday
3 Monday, Tuesday
4 Tuesday, Wednesday
5 Wednesday, Thursday
6 Thursday, Friday
7 Friday, Saturday
11 Sunday only
12 Monday only
13 Tuesday only
14 Wednesday only
15 Thursday only
16 Friday only
17

Saturday only

Holidays (optional). Indicates the dates that are considered non working days and not counted in the number of working days.

Cheers!
