When using such functions/calculations in a larger environment (company), across multiple areas with different holidays, then the only approach is the simple approach:

Use a prefilled calendar table and mark the work days.

Thanks for your help, I've just worked around it by using DateDiff to identify the number of days between the two dates, then divided it by 7 and multiplied it by the number of days the employee works, to get their working days in that period.

hmm, I guess it depends on the place you're livening. We have in Bavaria already three different calendars for holidays depending on the city (Augsburg - an additional peace festival for the peace treaty after the 30 years war, and depending on the majority of either Catholics or Protestants).. ;)
