# Exclude certain dates fron holidays in the NETWORKDAYS function

I've set up a worksheet to calculate holidays. There is a table consisting two columns. On column with dates, which include and days-off (holiday, public holidays and business trips) and another column with types of holiday ("holiday", "Public Holiday" and "business trip"). I use this table for several calculations.

There is another table, which has three columns: start date, end date and number of days, where I calculate holidays. I use a NETWORKDAYS function to exclude public holidays and weekends from calculations if they happen during my holiday. I tried to use the previous table of all days-off for the [holidays] field. But in order to distinguish between holidays and public holidays I tried to use INDEX/MATCH functions to exclude only "public holidays":
Code:
``=NETWORKDAYS(J14,K14,INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$97,MATCH("Public Holiday",\$C\$2:\$C\$97,0)))``
However, it does not seem to work. Basically I need the NETWORKDAYS function to take into account only "public holidays". I guess it should be something to do with array. Is it possible to do?

So you essentially don't want any weekend parameter right?

You can use binary to eliminate weekends from NETWORKDAYS.INTL function

I.e.
=NETWORKDAYS.INTL(TODAY(),TODAY()+9,"0000000")
will return 10 --> you can use the last parameter of the function to include your public holidays - is this what you're after?

Maybe...

=NETWORKDAYS(J14,K14,INDEX((\$C\$2:\$C\$97="Public Holiday")*\$A\$2:\$A\$97,))

No, I want to exclude holidays (like my holidays allowance) and leave only weekends and public holidays.
