## Convert Weekly Employee Hours to Approximate Daily Hours

Hi all,

I have a dataset of temporary employee hours summarized by employee and date of invoice from the temp agency. The invoice date is generally the Sunday following the week in which the work was done though in one case it was the following Thursday.

I am anlayzing productivity by Month and would like to have the hours divided across the approx. work days. How would I convert this table assuming the labor was done M-F of the previous week?

 Invoice Date Employee ID Hours Worked 08/18/2019 1234 26.00 08/18/2019 1235 39.50 09/15/2019 1236 24.00 08/18/2019 1237 2.00 09/08/2019 1240 7.50

Is it possible to change it into something like this using power query or dax? Ideally I would like to exclude Holidays, I do have a calendar table.

 Approx. Work Date Employee ID Approx. Hours Worked 08/12/2019 1234 5.20 08/13/2019 1234 5.20 08/14/2019 1234 5.20 08/15/2019 1234 5.20 08/16/2019 1234 5.20 08/12/2019 1235 7.90 08/13/2019 1235 7.90 08/14/2019 1235 7.90 08/15/2019 1235 7.90 08/16/2019 1235 7.90

How would you approach this challenge?
