    Hi @Dave Bowie

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =NETWORKDAYS(Start@row, DATE(YEAR(Start@row), MONTH(Start@row) + 1, 1) - 1)

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Hey Dave

    In your IF formula, you referenced 'start day' but it doesn't have the square brackets required for a column name containing a space.

    This should work for you

    =IF(MONTH([start day]@row) = 12, NETWORKDAYS([start day]@row, DATE(YEAR([start day]@row), 12, 31)), NETWORKDAYS([start day]@row, DATE(YEAR([start day]@row), MONTH([start day]@row) + 1, 1) - 1))
