SSRS working days formula/function with bank holidays

SSRS working days formula/function with bank holidays

SSRS working days formula/function with bank holidays


I'm struggling to find or write a SQL or .net function or SSRS expression to calculate working days between a CreatedDate and ClosedDate, the function must include bank holiday dates.

I'm working from a database where creating SQL functions are not permitted, however I can embed the SQL in the dataset and can create a lookup table for the bank holiday dates.

I'm hoping someone has one to share or can help me create one?

Any help appreciated.


RE: SSRS working days formula/function with bank holidays

I can't get the exact expression syntax out, but you might try something that follows this sort of logic:

((Difference in days between Date1 and Date2) + 1) - ((Difference in weeks between Date1 and Date2) * 2) - (1 if Date1 is Sunday) - (1 if Date2 is Saturday)

I think that will get you the weekday count at least.

Thanks jjefferson, it's a start but surprised there's no easy way of doing what should be a common function, nor is there much information on the web.
