DATEDIFF excluding weekends

Ive had a look at existing threads but none seem to be as simple as my scenario.

 

This is my formula in a measure

Turnaround (Days) = DATEDIFF('Jobs'[date_entered],'Jobs'[exported_date],DAY)

 

I want to basically exclude Sat and Sun from the calculation.

Hi @richardmayo,

You can follow the below steps to get the number of days between date_entered and exported_date:

1. Create one calendar table with normal date if your data model still not have any date table    create calendar table.JPG

2. Add one calculated column on table Jobs with the below formula:        

Turnaround (Days) = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('Calendar'),filter('Calendar',WEEKDAY('Calendar'[Date],2)<6),DATESBETWEEN('Calendar'[Date],'Jobs'[date_entered],'Jobs'[exported_date]))

Please replace CMS_Detail[Reported_Date] and CMS_Detail[Completed_Date] as your start date and end date.

 

Dates_between =
VAR TEMP_CALENDAR =
    FILTER (
        ADDCOLUMNS (
            CALENDAR (
                CMS_Detail[Reported_Date],
                COALESCE ( CMS_Detail[Completed_Date], TODAY () )
            ),
            "DAY_NAME", WEEKDAY ( [Date], 1 )
        ),
        [DAY_NAME] < 6
    )
RETURN
    COUNTROWS ( TEMP_CALENDAR )

Ping me, in any case, Junaise PT

Great, how can you take it forward to also exclude public holidays

Thank you! Perfect and simple solution!

 

 

Yes this is perfect (and does not require a new table as I already had a date table)

 

Also, I just added a -1 at the end of the formula so that it does not count the start date in the calculation of "turnaround".

Hi @richardmayo 

 

Create a separate and disconnected (no relationship) calendar table that has an indicator whether a date is a weekday or not. Example:

 

 

Dates =
ADDCOLUMNS (
    CALENDAR ( DATE ( 2019, 1, 1 ), DATE ( 2019, 12, 31 ) ),
    "Day Name", FORMAT ( [Date], "ddd" ),
    "Weekday", IF ( WEEKDAY ( [Date], 2 ) >= 6, 0, 1 )
)

 

 

Then create this column:

 

 

Datediff =
VAR __Datediff =
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Dates'[Weekday] ),
        DATESBETWEEN ( 'Dates'[Date], 'Jobs'[date_entered], 'Jobs'[exported_date] )
    ) - 1
RETURN
    IF ( __Datediff < 0, 0, __Datediff )
