Excel FunctionsPeriod FunctionsExcel NETWORKDAYS Function


Used to return the number of working days between two dates, assuming Saturday and Sunday as holidays. For example, you were told that you have to submit your documents before 15-December-2020, and you wanted to know how many working days, do you have to ensure that all documentation will be completed. 

Note: Networkdays work exactly opposite to WORKDAY function, in which date after specific working days is calculated. Further, there is also a difference from NETWORKDAYS.INT function in which ONLY SUNDAY is assumed as the weekend.


The NETWORKDAYS function syntax has the following arguments:

  • Start_date Required.

A date that represents the start date.

  • End_Date Required.

A date that represents the end date.

  • Holidays Optional.

An optional list of one or more dates to exclude from the working day calendar, such as state and federal holidays and floating holidays.

The list can be either a range of cells that contain the dates or an array constant of the serial numbers that represent the dates.
