First of all, dealing with date and time is very sensitive.
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:03
For them to work properly, we must ensure we have the correct data types.
User 09/05/2018 - 03:04
yep that's fine - the format is fine - the formula doesn't bring back the data on weekends
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:05
So you need all the weekends to be inclusive?
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:06
Are you there?
User 09/05/2018 - 03:09
yes
User 09/05/2018 - 03:10
all weeknds just between certain hours
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:10
Kindly allow the time extension so that we can be able to chat.
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:11
In that case we will not use the NETWORKDAYS.INTL function
User 09/05/2018 - 03:11
ok
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:12
NETWORKDAYS.INTL function always excludes weekends which you specify in its parameters.
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:12
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:12
DAYS360 function
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:14
OR
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:15
DATEDIF function
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:15
DATEIF function Calculates the number of days, months, or years between two dates.
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:15
Its syntax is:
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:15
DATEDIF(start_date,end_date,unit)
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:16
Where:
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:16
Is a date that represents the first, or starting, date of the period. Dates may be entered as text strings within quotation marks (for example, "2001/1/30"), as serial numbers (for example, 36921, which represents January 30, 2001, if you're using the 1900 date system), or as the results of other formulas or functions (for example, DATEVALUE("2001/1/30")).
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:17
End_date
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:17
A date that represents the last, or ending, date of the period.
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:17
Unit
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:17
The type of information that you want returned:
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:17
"Y" for number of years
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:17
"D" for number of days
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:17
"M" for number of months
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:18
Otherwise if your system is based on 30-day month, 360-year system, use the DAYS360 function.
Excelchat Expert 09/05/2018 - 03:19
In summary, replace the NETWORKDAYS.INTL function.
