Is it possible to calculate the number of work days, say between Apr. 15, 2006 and Jan 20, 2007? I can calulate the number of days, but need Monday-Friday number of days (work days with no holidays)? Thanks.

What if you identify the closest Sunday to April 15 and the closest Saturday to January 20, and calculate the total number of weeks and from that the total number of days. Then you could subtract 2 days for each week as well as the number of days you added on.
I agree. Here's the link:
