Max and Min on work date


Hi I like to use Max and Min to get the "start date" and "end date" in a networkdays function, trying to add new measure in the data.
my date filed is [work date].
add field:
Field Name: Number of Workdays
networkdays = (min([Work Date]), max([Work Date]))
min and max are invalid function
Please advise what is the correct syntax.

Re: Max and Min on work date

Please convert Work Date as Start & End Date.

Then use - NetWorkDays([Start Date],[End Date])

if you want you can specify holidays as well. Please check the below example.

  need to specify the holidays in networkday().

   For example you want networkdays between 2006-12-18 and 2006-12-31.

   If you just give this without the specific holidays you will get 10 as output.

   But say you have holiday on 2006-12-25 and 2006-12-26

   Then specify like this

   networkdays ('2006-12-18', '2006-12-31', '2006-12-25', '2006-12-26')


   and you will get answer as 8.
