you have an extra "w" in the NETWORKDAYS function before the "t".  Remove it.

Then, what is the issue?  The formula enters correctly otherwise, but not sure what you are asking?

You have 2 different outcomes in your formula for when C15=""...

Can you explain, with words what you want the formula to check and do please?

B15 is Blank leads to check C15

B15 is not Blank does not have an option

C15 is blank gives "No"

C15 is not Blank checks if C15 is blank (already checked!!)

C15 is not blank does NETWORKDAYS calculation.

Thanks

BTW to avoid typos like you had in the question, you can copy and paste from excel to the Question. To copy the formula, highlight the formula in the formula bar and press Ctrl + C; then you can paste into question text.

in words...
if b15 is blank and c15 is blank then return no date otherwise if c15 is blank and b15 has a date then networkdays calculation.

The blank check of B15 & C15 can be combined in and AND

=IF(AND(B15="",C15=""),"",NETWORKDAYS(...

You don't have an option for when both are populated.

You have 4 scenarios that need to be covered.
B & C Blank - covered above -> Blank
B Blank, C populated
B populated, C Blank
B & C populated

Thanks

Try:

=IF(C15="",IF(B15<>"",NETWORKDAYS(B15,E11,public holidays),"No"),"No")
