I want to determine the number of work days between 2 dates, the drop dead date and the current date.

I want to enter a drop date into a cell and have excel subtract the current date from whatever date is in that cell and display the number of workkday in another cell.

Example: Workdays  =  Drop dead date - Current date
                 Workdays =  Cell B2 - Current Date
                Workdays  = April 1, 2015 - Jan 13, 2015
                Workdays = 57

Please advise what formula to use .

Thanks in advance for you assistance

NETWORKDAYS() will give the number of "working days" (i.e., Mon-Fri) between two dates.
