 Here is an updated formula that will take into account if both dates are the same:=IF(DATEDIF(A1,B1,"D")=0,NETWORKDAYS(A1,B1)-1,NETWORKDAYS(A1,B1)-2)&" DAYS "&HOUR(MOD(B1-A1,1))&" HOUR "&MINUTE(MOD(B1-A1,1))&" MINUTES"MIKEmessage edited by mmcconaghy

 Robe,The moderator has deleted your other two posts in regards to this question.If you post in the wrong forum, the moderator will usually move the thread to the appropriate forum, you do not have to post the same question twice.My comment was to remind you to post in the proper forum, and to alert the moderator that the thread should be moved.If you have any further questions, please REPLY to the post, do not create another one.As to your concerns about the formula displaying the First Day as number 1,this was discussed in the referenced thread, beginning at response # 7.Does the suggested modified formula not work for you?

 Yes the formula is not working based on what I need.As what I have posted here below is my scenarioI have visitid the link you have provided and tried =NETWORKDAYS(C91,AG91)-1&" DAYS "&HOUR(MOD(AG91-C91,1))&" HOUR "&MINUTE(MOD(AG91-C91,1))&" MINUTES"Computing these two days for example: 5/16/2014 2:54:56 PM 5/19/2014 4:58:45 AM gives me a result of 1 DAYS 14 HOUR 3 MINUTESHowever, it is less than 24 hours so it will not show 1 day.

 I don't understand what you mean by "it is less than 24 hours so it will not show 1 day"Why would you want it to show 1 day when it is less than 24 hours? Seems to me that you would want to see 0 Days ## Hours.If it showed 1 day for time differences less than 24 hours, it would be wrong.

 Computing these two days for example: 5/16/2014 2:54:56 PM 5/19/2014 4:58:45 AM gives me a result of 1 DAYS 14 HOUR 3 MINUTESBut looking at these two dates it is only 14 hours and not suppose to be 1 DAYS 14 HOUR 3 MINUTES

 For the way you wish to display the data, I believe that simply subtracting 2 instead of 1 will display the data in the format you wish, so something like:=NETWORKDAYS(C91,AG91)-2&" DAYS "&HOUR(AG91-C91)&" HOUR "&MINUTE(AG91-C91)&" MINUTES"The NETWORKDAYS function excludes weekends, but it apparently counts whole days beginning with your start date, and stopping on your end date.So NETWORKDAYS will always return at least 2, unless both dates are the same, in which case it returns 1.Also, since you wish to exclude Weekends, have you also considered Holidays?MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/
