## How to calculate business days

I have one date universal date table that is from 1900-01-01 to 9999-12-31. And have one businee day flag.

Business day flag is 1 when we don't have holiday and 0 when we have holidays.

I have one  table which has [acno date] & [received date] and which is not in relationship with date table.

So I want to calculated number of business days between [acno date] & [received date].

For e.g

[acno date] =2019-01-01  & [received date]=2019-01-31

so total calender days=31 and business days=31-8=23

where for 8 =days(weekends) business flag is 0.  so we worked for 23 days only.

Is there any way we can calculate business days for each [acno date] & [received date]

@Anonymous please try this measure and check if it works for you

``````Measure =
VAR _acno = MAX('Table'[acno date])
VAR _holidays = CALCULATE(COUNT('Calendar'[Date]),FILTER('Calendar','Calendar'[Date]>=_acno && 'Calendar'[Date]<=_received&&'Calendar'[Flag]=0))
RETURN diff-_holidays``````

it will give you same output. Acno_date and received_Date are columns having multiple values.

e.g

2019-01-01|2019-01-15| 11

2019-07-01|2019-01-15| 6

2019-01-01|2019-01-31| 23

...

...

...

... so on

@Anonymous Why do you think It will produce same output. Please refer below picture. I have created a flag in calendar table which returns zero for holidays and 1 for working days

Then I have another table in which I have acno and received date. Please let me know if this is not the expected result.

@Anonymous Please create a calculated column as per below

``````WorkingDays =
VAR _holidays = CALCULATE(COUNT('Calendar'[Date]),FILTER('Calendar','Calendar'[Date]>='Table'[Acno] && 'Calendar'[Date]<='Table'[Received]&&'Calendar'[Flag]=0))
RETURN _days-_holidays``````

Please let me know if you have any question. if it helps feel free to hit kudos button.
