Hi, @LCL 

 

You can try the following methods. Create a new date table.

Table:

Date = CALENDAR(DATE(2022,1,1),DATE(2022,12,31))

Column:

Weekday = WEEKDAY([Date],2)
Month = FORMAT([Date],"mmmm")
days =
CALCULATE (
    COUNT ( 'Date'[Date] ),
    FILTER ( 'Date', [Weekday] <= 5 && [Month] = EARLIER ( 'Date'[Month] ) )
)
working days = [Month]&[days]

If your form is similar to this. You can join two tables with Month.

Is this the result you were hoping for?
