## Sum by total number of work days

Hello everyone,

I need to sum by the total number of workdays from beginning of data set to end.

To do so I tried to use this formula but cannot nest the expression.

I know that you can use AGGR to nest expressions but I have been unable to make it work.

Any thoughts?

1.)   SUM(DailyPT)*(MAX(NETWORKDAYS(MIN(visitdate),TODAY())-MIN(NETWORKDAYS(visitdate,TODAY()))))

2.)   SUM(DailyPT)*(MAX(AGGR((NETWORKDAYS(MIN(visitdate),TODAY()))-MIN(AGGR(NETWORKDAYS(visitdate,TODAY())))))

Update*

Just realized that I cannot use NetworkDays because that function is counting the days, not finding.

To summarize I need to sum by the number of work days inbetween the MIN(visitdate) and MAX(visitdate)

Not finding? What should it be finding?

Can you give an example with some numbers and the result you expect?

during load create a new flag field to mark working days, and use the Flag to only include working days

Sum({<WorkDayFlag = {1}>}DailyPT)

This just counts weeks from a month ago date and doubles it:

Might require some extra conditions depending on weekday(visitdate)

Hi Vineeth,

Seems this works best when the Daily PT is calculated into a Monthly sum first.

Any advice on how best to link the daily target, by position, to the calendar?

I have an example for you here:

I need to Multiply the DailyPT by the number of workdays from the beginning of the dataset (Based on date selections)

To me the expression is like this:

SUM(DailyPT) * NumberofWorkDays
