## Start date not being included in working days formula

I have a formula to calculate the number of working days between a projects start and end date. However, the formula is not including the start date of the project. For example - a project starts on May 18 2020 and the formula returns 9 working days, instead of 10. Please see the formula below (I have a date table with working days flagged):

Using DATESBETWEEN still returns the same (i.e., project starting 4/18 returns 9 days)

I do have a month column, so the calculation is expected to return the working days over the course of the month

@Anonymous I just looked at your date table and without the measure, you can see there are 9 working days between May 18th, 2020 and May 31st, 2020 and your measure is working fine, why you expected 10 days? What I'm missing here?

I have a month column in a matrix visual - adding +1 adds an additional day to ever month - not just the starting month
