To all excel gurus,
I need help with the current excel function:
=NETWORKDAYS($G4,$H4)+IF(NETWORKDAYS($G4,$H4)+ NETWORKDAYS($G4,$H4)=2,-SIGN(NETWORKDAYS($G4,$H4)),0)

This function works great to calculate the number of days between two dates.  How do I make it calculate 1 day if the date range is the same?
I have another simple calculation based upon the result.  

Please see the attached excel worksheet.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Use:

[B2]=IF($D2=$E2,1,NETWORKDAYS($D2,$E2)+IF(NETWORKDAYS($D2,$E2)+ NETWORKDAYS($D2,$E2)=2,-SIGN(NETWORKDAYS($D2,$E2)),0))

and copy down.

See attached.

However, what I don't understand is why you aren't just using:

[B2]=NETWORKDAYS($D2,$E2)

and copy down.

Please advise.
