This is too complicated for a help site like this, you are going to want to consult an excel forum, or some excel professional in your area. This is far beyond the scope of what you can expect for \$15, which I'm sure you now realize after 10 days of trying.

Thanks

### Need to have a certain cell say OFF when it is a certain day

Use the test function.
Formula in cell A1 would be =text(a2,"dddd").
This would pick up the date from cell A2 and return the day of the week in cell A1.

### Formula for Calculating the turn around time in excel

dpprash,

I guess you mean the number of weekdays (or working days) excluding Saturdays and Sundays. So start a spreadshhet and put the start date (01/01/2009) in A2 and the end date (31/12/2009?) in B2.

Then paste the formula below into C2:

=B2-A2-2*INT((B2-A2+WEEKDAY(A2,3))/7)-MAX(0,WEEKDAY(B2,3)-4

### Work day

Hi Chinnu,

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

Kindly follow the below instructions:

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.
