Go to the field with the number of day formula and modify the formula just add to it this *8. The result will be in hrs.
Assuming a holiday uses 8 hrs of pay. It sounds like everyone starts with 25 holiday X 8 hrs or 200 total hours,

### How many days worked in year on a 5on 3off rota with 28 days holidays

I haven't counted on the calendar but just performed a simple calculation that I can't guarantee is correct and the answer isn't exact as the last work/rest period will run into the following year and possibly the first one the previous year so rounding down I reckon 210 days will be worked

### Workday function in excel formulas

The WorkDay Function returns a number that's the serial date that is the indicated number of working days from a given date (the starting date). Working days EXCLUDE weekends and any dates identified as holidays. Use WORKDAY to exclude weekends or holidays when you calculate invoice due dates, expected delivery times, or the number of days of work performed.
The Syntax is:
=WORKDAY(start_date,days,holidays)
where:
- start_date is in Date format (and can be a calculated value);
- days is a number of elapsed days after start_date (can be calculated, can be negative to indicate a date BEFORE start_date);
- holidays is an array of holidays you can specify if desired.

### I want an formula in excel to find out number of days present per month an perticular worker

Hello this is Baris,
Can you tell me more about this employee. Are you creating an excel spreadsheet to keep record of his days. Are you just getting the numbers from an outside source like a schedule.

To be able to give you an answer I will assume that you have the info already in the same spreadsheet.

Lets say Column A is the days of the month.
Column B is the information column like the hours that the employee worked. If the month has 31 days this is what you need to do.
Click on the cell B32 and type the formula
=count(B1:B31) and press enter. This will count the number off cells which have a value in it in that month.

If you provide me more info we may come up with a better solution. Hope this helps :)

This is a long shot ... I dont know what spread sheet you are having trouble with. It might be that your sheet thinks you are entering text when you put in the reference "J~" Be dure you are entering a formuila and not test that looks like a formula (to you)

### Re holidays accrued.

Your 28 days holiday is free holidays (assuming you have not including predetermined holidays - i.e public holidays)

28 days divide by 12 months = 2.333 days

Your holiday year cannot be April to April as this is 13 months - so I have assumed it is April to March, or it could be May to April - This will affect how many holidays you have earnt upto August.

Multliply the 2.33 days per month by the number of months until your holiday in August. The calculation your employer is using may take into account you have to earn full days by the end of the month before you take a holiday.

2.33 days X 4 months to end of July = 9 days
2.33 days X 5 months to end of August - 11 days.

You may have to exclude the public holidays if this is included in your annual allowance

Here is one way to do it:
1. In column A enter the name
2. In column B enter their start date in the format day-month-2008 (31-12-2008 for Dec. 31, 2008); if a day is less than 10, put zero in front (03, 04, etc.)
3. In column C put 31-12-2008 (December 31, 2008, the last day of the year)
4. In column D, put C1-B1 and format as a number with 2 places after the period (10.25 for example) if you want to track partial days, other format for no zeroes after the period (13)
5. In column E, put this formula:
(D2/30)*1.25 (assuming this is line 2)
You can then copy these lines as many times as you need to, total them, etc.

### Work day

Hi Chinnu,

For this you will have to install an Add-in called Analysis Tool Pack.

1. Open Excel Options (Menu-Excel Options)
2. Click on Add-Ins on the side pane of the Excel Options Window
3. Check to see if Analysis ToolPak is in Inactive application add-in list.
4. If is not, proceed to Step 7
5. If it is in the inactive application add in list, Select Excel Add-ins against Manage and click on "Go"
6. In the add-ins menu check Analysis ToolPak and Analysis ToolPak VBA and click OK
7. Use this formula to find the number of work days excluding Saturday & Sunday in a month

=NETWORKDAYS(start_date,end_date, [Holidays])

In your case give the start date as 1st July and end date as 10th July and Holidays as 0 or 1 (doesn't matter). The answer it will return will be 8 days.

Trust the above helped.

### Creating a holiday accrual spreadsheet.

Hi, I guess you mean vacation accrual. It's hard to help you here, without knowing the exact accrual formula. However here are some tips: Set up a column with the start date for each employee and use the today() function to get today's date. You can use the days360() funtion to calculate the number of days between two dates, assuming regular 30 days/month. For more date related functions, click on the Fx (letter f with an subscript x) to the left of the value/formula entry field at the top of the spreadsheet. Thsi gives you a wizard with a list of functions. Select the Data/Time group and you see all available functions and can interactively pull them together. Good luck K
