Many a times it is required to find working days between two dates. We do know that DATEDIFF function can be used to find differences between two dates; however the working days calculation excludes weekends and holidays. This solution doesn’t consider holidays. The function for the same is given below.

The above function is an inline table valued function which accepts two parameters @fromdate and @todate. The statement DATEDIFF(dd,@fromdate,@todate) + 1 gives the number of dates between the two dates. The statement DATEDIFF(wk,@fromdate,@todate) gives the number of weeks between dates and * 2 gives us the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) count. The next two statements excludes the day if it’s a Saturday or Sunday.

The output from the function is given below.
