Help with count of days returning as a negative number


Hi there,

I have a formula that counts the number of days between the received date of a request and the completion date:

=IF(Status@row <> "Complete", NETWORKDAY([Received Date]@row, TODAY()), NETWORKDAY([Received Date]@row, [Completed Date]@row))

So once the "Status" of the request has been changed to "Complete" it displays the number of days, however we have negative numbers being displayed as well - what do I need to add to the existing formula to make those negative numbers show up simply as 0?

Thank you!

    This should do the trick:

    =IF(Status@row <> "Complete", NETWORKDAY([Received Date]@row, TODAY()), IF(NETWORKDAY([Received Date]@row, [Completed Date]@row) < 0, 0, NETWORKDAY([Received Date]@row, [Completed Date]@row))
