Business Days Age calculation between two dates excluding weekends

Dear Team,

 

i am trying to create a column Business Days Age in power BI (Difference between two dates excluding weekends). below is the table i am referring to.

Note: "Reporting Date" column is created by Formula. finding difficulty in arriving "Network days"

 

tried creating a query as below, but it didn't work as the "Reporting Date" column not appearing in the formula bar. As it is not in the original Data table(it is created by a formula)

 

= (StartDate as date, EndDate as date) as number =>
let
ListDates = List.Dates(StartDate, Number.From(EndDate-StartDate),#duration(1,0,0,0)),
RemoveWeekends = List.Select(ListDates, each Date.DayOfWeek(_, Day.Monday)< 5),
CountDays = List.Count(RemoveWeekends)
in
CountDays

  • Add a calendar table to your model, let's call it DimDate
  • Add column to the DimDate, use this formula 

WorkingDay_Mark =

VAR WeekDayNum =

  WEEKDAY ( DimDate[Date] )

RETURN

IF ( WeekDayNum = 1 || WeekDayNum = 7 ,0,1)

 

  • the formula will mark 1 for working days and 0 for weekends
  • to your fact table add column and use this formula

Business Days Age =

COUNTROWS (

           FILTER (

                   DimDate,

                   AND (

                            AND (

                                     DimDate[Date].[Date] >= Orders[Value Date].[Date],

                                     DimDate[Date].[Date] <= Orders[Reporting Date].[Date]

                            ),

                            DimDate[WorkingDay_Mark]

                     )

            )

)

Hi @kirankumar3065 

Formulas created in the model you can't see them or use them in Power Query.

Use DAX in the model to get the numbers you want.

Hi Amine,

 

If you can provide the DAX function to calculate the Age excluding weekends it would be helpful.

 

i am new to Power BI and not aware of DAX functions.

Kiran
