Calculating Man Hour Utilization for each employee by Labor Type.

I have built my report that tracked entries from different "Home Stations" around the world. Those reports feed my PBI. 

The reports log, Date of task, Labor type ( Direct, Indirect, and Training) along with the time spent on that task. " Duration". 

The reports are by Site and not by employee, "Supporting FSR".  Some employees are no longer on contract, but I still need to report on their past activities 

Here are my tables :

  • Appended queries of all 34 reports broken down, Each Query look exactly the same. See example table below.
  • DateHome StationSupporting FSRLabor TypeContact TypeCategoryDuration (Hr)

(Due to ITAR, CUI, and other regulations I cannot post a Snip of that table.)

I need to use these tables to calculate the number of hours assigned M-F, 8 hours per day, between the start and end dates of each person, excluding Federal holidays that I have listed in another table.


Desired Result would look something like this.
