Hi

Create a measure like pattern below:

`Measure =CALCULATE ( COUNT ( DateDimension[Date] ), FILTER ( DateDimension, DateDimension[IsHoliday] <> 1 & DateDimension[Isweekend] <> 1 ))`

If you have other contion in your item table,like this:

```Measure =
CALCULATE (
COUNT ( ItemTable[Item] ),
FILTER (
DateDimension,
DateDimension[IsHoliday]
<> 1 & DateDimension[Isweekend]
<> 1 & OtherConditions
)
)
```

Tough to say exactly without sample source data to test with. Please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

But, something along the lines of:

```VAR __LastDayofMonth = DAY(EOMONTH([Item_date],0)) //this will give you the last day of the month

VAR __LastDaytoCalculate = __LastDayofMonth - 4 //last day you want a calculation for

```

Not sure exactly what you are going for or trying to calculate so hard to be specific. Are you trying to count days by month, by year? You just want the count?

Hi sjain17,

Excluding the business day is not like excluding last 4 days in a month, I would recommend you to create a column which mask workday and other days(weekends or holiday) based on your company schedule, then you can filter all the workday records and use a RANKX() function to rank all workdays, after that you can use measure like pattern like below to filter out all the workdays which can meet your requirement.

```calculate(..., filter(table,table[RANK] > 4))
```

Can you please let me know DAX to mask weekend and list of holiday from date column. Because without aggregate function I am not able to do that. Also, I am using direct query.

My DateDimension Table is as below. I have another table which has Item_date column, I will create a join between Date column to Item_date.
