Duration in hours without weekend (so exclude these 48 hours)

Hi I have a table with start date/hour and end date/hour. Currently the column Workhours does NOT give the required solution, since this column includes the 48 hours of the weekend. 
Goal: I want to calculate the duration in hours, but exclude the 48 hours of a weekend. When there are multiple weekends between start and end date (lets say 4 weekends) then 4 * 48 hours should be excluded.

The solution should be created in the Query editor when possible, else a calculated column. Using a dim date related table does not have my preference, for other reasons not related to this issue.

See my sample in the dropbox link data.
I also added in column H the correct answers, especially the yellow rows create difficulty.

Hi @FilipFireFlyBI ,

 

According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1) My test data is the same as yours.

(2) We can create a calculated column.

WorkHour = 
VAR _allmin =
    GENERATESERIES(
        'Table'[starttime],
       'Table'[enddate],
        1 / 1440
    )
VAR _workmin =
    FILTER(
        ADDCOLUMNS(
            _allmin,
            "workday", WEEKDAY( [Value], 2 )
        )
        ,
        [workday] < 6
            
    )
RETURN
    COUNTROWS( _workmin ) / 60

(3) Then the result is as follows.
