Calculate Working day or Business Day in current month excluding both Weekends and Public Holidays.

Hi Guys,

I have a requirement like we have to calculate current working day (e.g. 4th or 5th working day) excluding WEEKENDS and PUBLIC HOLIDAYS. For excluding weekends, there is a formula. But for excluding public holidays ,I am not sure how to write a formula for the same.

Currently to calculate current business day excluding weekends, I am using the formula (retrieved from Salesforce Help) given below:
( 
( FLOOR ( ( TODAY() - DATE (1900,01,01) ) / 7 ) *5 ) 
+ MIN ( 5, MOD ( TODAY() - DATE (1900,01,01), 7 ) +1 ) 
) - 
( 
( FLOOR ( ( DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),1) - DATE (1900,01,01) ) / 7 ) *5 ) 
+ MIN ( 5, MOD ( DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),1) - DATE (1900,01,01), 7 ) ) 
)
So now, I request for the possible solutions (both Configuration and customization way). Configuration way is preferred here.
Waiting for your response.

Thanks in Advance.

Not sure about configuration but you can try querying the Holiday object in code and then calculate working days.

Hi Prabhata,
Could you post your solution if you had figured out how to include holidays in determining the business day?

Thanks
