Formula to calculate number of day in process

Looking for a formula to calculate the number of days in process until a completion date is entered? I would like the number of days in process to show for tracking, but stop calculating when a completion date has been entered.

=NETWORKDAYS([Received Date]@row, TODAY())

If I add 3/19/22 to the completion date column, the number of days in process will continue to increase.

    Hi @RENEET

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    IF([Received Date]@row = "", "", 
    IF([Completion Date]@row = "", NETWORKDAYS([Received Date]@row, TODAY()), 
    NETWORKDAYS([Received Date]@row, [Completion Date]@row)))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
