Network DAX

Hello! 

I have a question regarding DAX Networkdays - is there any way how I can use this function and also be able to use output data from this function for further calculations? 

problem: I have two dates and I need to define working days between those, after I have them I want to multiply it by some static numbers. 

 

example : 1.1-5.1.2022, working days: 5, working days * rate * XY 

 

So far I found the networkdays working as a measure and I'm not able to import those data into powerquery to do some further calculations with it. 

thanks a lot for your help !

Hi @VL345 ,

 

Because Power Query is a tool for preprocessing data, calculated columns and measures are not displayed in Power Query, and you can calculate the working days between two dates directly from the custom NetworkDays function called by Power Query.

 

Please refer to the following posts:
