Only count business days in date diff count

I need to run a report to see how long it takes something to be done.

 

I have 

StartDate and EndDate columns and can use a DateDiff(EndDate,StartDate) to get total days it took. 


What I would like to do is be able to NOT count weekend days in the count. So example would be

 

StartDate               EndDate            ActualTotalDays               TotalDaysWOWeekends

1/31/2018              2/2/2018                     2                                           2

2/2/2018                2/7/2018                    5                                            3  (not counting 2-3 & 2-4)

Re: Only count business days in date diff count

Does something go in [Value] area?  Here is my formula  and I get "The arguments in GenerateSeries function cannot be blank

 

TotalDaysWOWeekends =
VAR MyDates =
ADDCOLUMNS (
GENERATESERIES ( V_ACCT[visit_disch_date] + 1, V_ACCT[V_ACCT_HIM_Grouper.ipg_mrcomp_date] ),
"Day", WEEKDAY ( [Value], 2 )
)
RETURN
COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( mydates, [Day] <= 5 ) )

HI @kattlees

 

Try this Column

 

TotalDaysWOWeekends =
VAR MyDates =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        GENERATESERIES ( TableName[StartDate] + 1, TableName[EndDate] ),
        "Day", WEEKDAY ( [Value], 2 )
    )
RETURN
    COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( mydates, [Day] <= 5 ) )
