Working Days between two periods

Hello  -  This formula works for counting positive days between two periods  (weekdays only).     Meaning...this assumes the Delivery Date comes after the Order Date.  

 

I am actually using this formula for tracking on-time shipments....so some early shipments actually ship before the due date.    In this case, this formula just shows a blank result.    I need it to somehow also count the number of weekdays even if the actual ship date comes before the due date.      For example:      Due Date:   Feb 17    Actual Ship Date:   Feb 12      Even if it shows the result with a negative....like   - 3 Days   this is fine.   

 

Any ideas?

 

Sales DeliveryWorking Days =
CALCULATE(
    COUNTROWS ( DateTable),
    DATESBETWEEN ( DateTable[Date],  'Flu Shipped'[Due Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped] -0 ),
    DateTable[DateIsWorkingDay] = TRUE,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' )
)

Yes, like I mentioned - you have to add your workday-filter.

It should work like you did before.

As I had to build the sample data from scratch, I've allowed myself to skip that additional column.

Re: Working Days between two periods

Thank you Imke!!     Here is the final formula for anyone else that may need this.    Again, this counts the number of workdays between one period and the next   (in this...between Due Dates  and  Ship Dates).     And also accounts for if the ship date comes earlier than the due date.  

 

WDC =
If( 'Flu Shipped'[Due Date] < 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped],
CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS( DateTable ),
DATESBETWEEN ( DateTable[Date],  'Flu Shipped'[Due Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped]),DateTable[DateIsWorkingDay]= True,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' )
),

CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS( DateTable ),
DATESBETWEEN ( DateTable[Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped], 'Flu Shipped'[Due Date]), DateTable[DateIsWorkingDay]=True,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' )
) * -1)

Re: Working Days between two periods

Hi @texmexdragon 

how about this?

 

WD = if ( 

'Flu Shipped'[Due Date] < 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped],
CALCULATE(
    COUNTROWS ( DateTable),
    DATESBETWEEN ( DateTable[Date],  'Flu Shipped'[Due Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped] -0 ),
    DateTable[DateIsWorkingDay] = TRUE,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' ),

CALCULATE(
    COUNTROWS ( DateTable),
    DATESBETWEEN ( DateTable[Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped] -0,  'Flu Shipped'[Due Date],  ) * -1,
    DateTable[DateIsWorkingDay] = TRUE,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped'
) )

Re: Working Days between two periods

I tried it.   I am getting the error: 

 

A function "Calculate" has been used in a True/False expression that is used as a Table filter expression.   This is not allowed.

Re: Working Days between two periods

 Oh yes, sorry - the *-1 has to be moved:

 

WD = if ( 

'Flu Shipped'[Due Date] < 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped],

CALCULATE(
    COUNTROWS ( DateTable),
    DATESBETWEEN ( DateTable[Date],  'Flu Shipped'[Due Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped] -0 ),
    DateTable[DateIsWorkingDay] = TRUE,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' ),

CALCULATE(
    COUNTROWS ( DateTable),
    DATESBETWEEN ( DateTable[Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped] -0,  'Flu Shipped'[Due Date],  ) ,
    DateTable[DateIsWorkingDay] = TRUE,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' 
) * -1 )

Re: Working Days between two periods

Hi Imke  -  I'm still getting the same message.   

 

I think maybe it has something to do with the IF statement and the Calculate Statments?

Re: Working Days between two periods

Hi working for me, but there might be typos in my post. Please compare with screenshot:

WDC = 
If( 'Flu Shipped'[Due Date] < 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped],
CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS( 'Calendar' ),
DATESBETWEEN ( Calendar[Date],  'Flu Shipped'[Due Date], 'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped]),
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' )
),

CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS( 'Calendar' ),
DATESBETWEEN ( Calendar[Date],   'Flu Shipped'[Date Shipped], 'Flu Shipped'[Due Date]) ,
    ALL ( 'Flu Shipped' )
) * -1)

.. just be aware that the holiday-filter is missing in my sample..

Re: Working Days between two periods

Hi Imke   -   Your formula seems to be counting total days.    I am just looking for week days.     For example, to use your numbers below there are not 32 "work days" between January 1 and Feb 1.
