Try this function:

Function NoOfWorkingDays(BeginDate As Date, EndDate As Date)
Dim ctr As Date, NDay As Integer, WDay As Integer
WDay = 0
For ctr = BeginDate To EndDate
    NDay = WeekDay(ctr)
    WDay = WDay + 1
    If NDay = 1 Or NDay = 7 Then WDay = WDay - 1
Next ctr
NoOfWorkingDays = WDay
End Function

Value returned returned:
1 = Sunday; 2 = Monday; 3 = Tuesday;....; 7 = Saturday


Example:

from debug window;  

? NoOfWorkingDays(#9/1/98#,#9/10/98#)

This was actually for a friend of mine.  He says the code appears to be functioning correctly and returning valid dates!  Thanks for your help. I only wish Microsoft would document this function in its documentations.
