Posted: 21 Nov 03
Use the following formula, replacing the items in Bold with your start/end date and the items in Italics with your holidays........
//Set the values of Start Date and End Date
DateVar StartDate := Date(2003,01,01);
DateVar EndDate := Date(2003,12,31);
//Find out the difference in days and subtract the weekends
NumberVar DaysDiff := DateDiff("d",StartDate,EndDate) -
//Create an array of Holiday dates
Local DateVar Array Holidays := MakeArray(
//Loop through the array checking if each holiday is within the dates
Numbervar Counter := 0;
While UBound(Holidays) <> Counter do
(Counter := Counter + 1;
if Not(dayofweek(Holidays[Counter]) in [1,7]) and
Holidays[Counter] in StartDate to EndDate then DaysDiff := DaysDiff -1;);
