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?

If you have date then

Start Date of month = eomonth([Date],-1)+1
