# Calculate number of 8 hour days a date range

Hi, I'm looking to calculate how many days 8 hour days (08:00 - 16:00) there are in a defined period i.e. 20.01.2023, 06:30 to 29.01.2023, 13:30. This is a relativly small period so I can manually

Do you want to include or exclude weekend days?

And how do you want to count partial days, such as 29.01.2023 in your example (up to 13:30 instead of 16:00)?

R.e. weekends I want to include these.

R.e. partial days I'd like to count these as a part of a day e.g. 08:00 to 13:30 would be 0.6875 days.

With the start date/time in A1 and the end date/time in B1:

=LET(startdate, A1, enddate, B1, wholedays, INT(enddate-startdate), newstart, startdate+wholedays, starttime, MIN(MAX(MOD(newstart, 1), TIME(8, 0, 0)), TIME(16, 0, 0)), endtime, MAX(MIN(MOD(enddate, 1), TIME(16, 0, 0)), TIME(8, 0, 0)), partday, MOD(endtime-starttime, TIME(8, 0, 0))/TIME(8,0,0), wholedays+partday)

Thank you very much

# Re: Calculate number of 8 hour days a date range

@Hans Vogelaar I've had to move some cells and the start date is now in cell X1 and the end date in cell Y1. I've tried changing A1 for X1, and B1 for Y1 in the formula but the error "#NAME?" comes up.  Do you know why this may be?

This doesn't work?

=LET(startdate, X1, enddate, Y1, wholedays, INT(enddate-startdate), newstart, startdate+wholedays, starttime, MIN(MAX(MOD(newstart, 1), TIME(8, 0, 0)), TIME(16, 0, 0)), endtime, MAX(MIN(MOD(enddate, 1), TIME(16, 0, 0)), TIME(8, 0, 0)), partday, MOD(endtime-starttime, TIME(8, 0, 0))/TIME(8,0,0), wholedays+partday)

Are you using a different version of Excel than before?

# Re: Calculate number of 8 hour days a date range

Ah maybe. I save the document on my one drive and open it on different machines. one is Excel 2016 and one is Excel for Microsoft 365 MSO. Will this make a differance?

# Re: Calculate number of 8 hour days a date range

Yes: the LET function is only available in Excel in Microsoft 365 and Office 2021, not in Office 2019 or earlier versions.
