# Excel Function to Calc Elapsed Hours (Excluding Weekends)

I have a need to calculate the hours between two time and date columns (e.g. 2/24/2015  12:39:00 PM and 2/24/2015  2:31:00 PM)

Some cover time over multiple dates. I would like to exclude weekends from that elapsed time.

Can anyone help me with this? Thank you

=NETWORKDAYS(A1,A2)

You can also include local/federal holidays as a third parameter. Please find more on Excel Help: https://support.office.com/en-au/article/NETWORKDAYS-function-5fb5a1fa-c42d-4162-a762-7b1fc97215c5

The NETWORKDAYS function gives you the number of working days between two dates. You could then use the time parts of the two values to work out the additional hours.

@ProfJimJam - your sample with two dates:

1 Jan 15 16:51
2 Jan 15 11:23

What does the 18/24 - 7/24 section do? I assume this gives working shift of 07:00 to 18:00. Where did you get that requirement? I asked the question but don't see an answer. Without that shift requirement, the result would be 18:32 ie 13 hours more being the spell between 18:00 on 1 Jan and 07:00 on 2 Jan.

Thanks

Saurabh,

TIME(24,,) = 0

!

Rob's formula should work assuming you are counting all 24 hours in the day (except Saturday and Sunday) and as long as your start/end dates aren't on Saturday or Sunday. Will that be the case?
