today's networkdays in the month:
=networkdays(DATE(YEAR(NOW()),MONTH(NOW()),1),NOW())
total networkdays in the month
=networkdays(DATE(YEAR(NOW()),MONTH(NOW()),1),DATE(YEAR(NOW()),MONTH(NOW())+1,1)-1)

kpwhitte,

Or you could use:

=NETWORKDAYS(EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)+1,EOMONTH(TODAY(),0),E2:E6)

where E2:E6 contains the list of dates which are public holidays. That formula will update automatically for whatever month it is - provided the list of public holidays in that month is correct.

I think you'll need the Analysis ToolPak installed for EOMONTH to work. Tools/Add-ins and tick the Analysis ToolPak option, press OK.
