Use this function to get the date difference, excluding Weekends (Saturday & sunday)

Function DiffWeekdays(ByVal datDay1 As Date, ByVal datDay2 As Date) As Long
        ' Comments  : Returns the number of weekdays between two dates
        '             The days are rounded down -- it takes 24 hours to make a day.
        ' Parameters: datDay1 - first (earlier) date/time (subtracted from datDay2)
        '             datDay2 - second (later) date/time
        ' Returns   : Number of whole business days between two dates
        '             (Returns negative days if datDay1 is after datDay2)
        '
        Dim lngDays As Long
        Dim lngWeeks As Long
        Dim datFirstDate As Date
        Dim datLastDate As Date
        Dim datNewDate As Date
        Dim intDirection As Integer

        If datDay1 < datDay2 Then
            datFirstDate = datDay1
            datLastDate = datDay2
            intDirection = 1
        Else
            datFirstDate = datDay2
            datLastDate = datDay1
            intDirection = -1
        End If

        ' Subtract weekends
        lngWeeks = ((Convert.ToInt32(datLastDate.DayOfWeek) - Convert.ToInt32(datFirstDate.DayOfWeek)) / 7)
        lngDays = lngWeeks * 5
        datNewDate = DateAdd(DateInterval.Day, (lngWeeks * 7), datFirstDate)
        While datNewDate < datLastDate
            datNewDate = DateAdd(DateInterval.Day, 1, datNewDate)
            If datNewDate <= datLastDate Then
                ' Don't count days when new day is Sunday or Saturday.
                ' (When new day is Saturday, you are actually counting Friday)
                If Weekday(datNewDate) <> 1 And Weekday(datNewDate) <> 7 Then
                    lngDays = lngDays + 1
                    MsgBox(Weekday(datNewDate) & " " & lngDays)
                End If
            End If
        End While
        DiffWeekdays = intDirection * lngDays
    End Function

DATEDIFF(d, myorderdate, sentdate) -2*DATEDIFF(weeked, myorderdate, sentdate) as Totalday is the answer. It works for me. Please refund
