Workdays for Current Work Week

I'm trying to get the # of workdays used for the current week. I have the starting date and ending date of the weeks in columns S & T. I need to show the # of workdays (not including today) used in column U. This is the formula I'm using to get the # of workdays used for the current quarter. How can I do this for the current week? And since I have all the weeks listed in my spreadsheet I would need to show all prior weeks as having used all the days for that week. I have a list of Holidays since I use it in my other formula. Here is the formula I'm using for the # of workdays used in the quarter:


Any ideas?

Just to clarify, by example:

For this calendar week, starting on Sunday, 8/24/2014, you'd want to see the following "days used" values:
Current Date - Day - Days Used
8/24/2014 - Sun - 0
8/25/2014 - Mon - 0
8/26/2014 - Tue - 1
8/27/2014 - Wed - 2
8/28/2014 - Thu - 3
8/29/2014 - Fri - 4
8/30/2014 - Sat - 5

I've attached an example workbook that calculates the used workdays with the above logic like so:

If you actually have a cell value with the current date in it, you can replace all occurrences of TODAY() with the location of that cell (either a range name or absolute cell reference).

I've attached a workbook that shows both methods.

No, like this:

Column S           Column T          Column U

08/24/14            08/30/14            1 - If today was Tuesday 8/26/14 then there would be 1 day used this week so far

Sorry for the confusion; I was trying to determine the correct logic for calculating days, not show actual layout.

Check my previously-submitted workbook; I think it shows the result you've demonstrated above.
