Adding a text string to a formula result in Excel

79 Views
Last Modified: 2018-02-02
My current formula below gives me a numeric value (# of business days):

=IF($AH2="","",IFERROR(NETWORKDAYS($I2,$AH2,Holidays),""))

I would like to revise this formula so that instead of just showing the number, I would like the result to include the word "day" as follows:

If result is 1 day, then "1 day"
If result is > than 1 day, then "# days" (ie., "3 days")

Thanks!
Andrea

Thanks for the quick response, Shaun! Sorry, but I just need it tweaked so that if Column AH is blank, then the results column is blank. It's currently showing 'days'.
