Hi, I am trying to calculate network days between two cells (not counting weekends and certain holidays). Say H2 has a date something was received, Date will be added to I2 when that item is forwarded. Trying to get network days when date is entered in I2. If not entered would like it to automatically insert "not started". I am using following formula... =NETWORKDAYS(I2,H2,'Do not touch'!F1:F20).
