# Vacation Days Formula - calculating half days

edited 10/10/23

Hi,

I am trying to incorporate 0.5 days of annual leave into my vacation tracker.

I have the forumla =NETWORKDAYS([Start Date]@row, [End Date]@row, {Bank Holiday Lookp}) to calculate overall number of days out (minus public holidays). From this total I then want to include any 0.5 days from this when 'half day requested' is shown as "Yes".

I can't seem to get the below forumla to work for me:

=(NETWORKDAYS([Start Date]63, [End Date]63) - IF([Half-day]63, .5_if_true, 0_if_false))

You don't need the _if_true / false pieces.

=NETWORKDAYS([Start Date]63, [End Date]63) - IF([Half-day]63 = "Yes", .5, 0)

=NETWORKDAYS([Start Date]63, [End Date]63) - IF([Half-day]63 = "Yes", .5, 0)

• Thank you! that's it working now :)
