I have the following expression in an SSRS report:

=IIF(DateDiff("d",Fields!OrderDate.Value, Now())>2,"Overdue",Fields!JobStatus.Value)

Open in new window


The current interval is set to "d" for day.  I am looking to find the difference in the number of working days.  I have tried "dw" and "w" but neither seem work.  Any thoughts?

There is no direct way to do it, but you can try something like the expression on this thread...

This script was very helpful.  I modified it for the US calendar and it worked without error.
