Number of working days

Posted by: | July 7, 2015 Comments Off on Number of working days |

Need to know the number of working days left until a specific date?


$we = [System.DayOfWeek]::Saturday, [System.DayOfWeek]::Sunday

$date = Get-Date -Year 2015 -Month 8 -Day 28
$now = (Get-Date).AddDays(-1)

$workdays = 0

while ($now -le $date){
$now = $now.AddDays(1)

if ($now.DayOfWeek -notin $we ) {



Create a collection of days you don’t want counting – in my case Saturday & Sunday

Set the date you want to count to and current date – the –1 on current day is to set the variable for the loop


In the loop increment the date and test against you collection of excluded days. Increment your workday counter and loop


Now you can work out how many days until that holiday , course or whatever.  The end date is included in the count by the way
