Total hours=8*no. of working days.

where the no. of working days should be the according to the date range selected.

Suppose a user selects a date range as 09-06-2104 to 10-06-2104,the no. of working days is 2 and thus the above formula become

Total hours=8*2.

Please suggest me how can i perform this.

Hi Arun,

Please have a look at Ken's website for the formula:

Multiply the final result by 8.

Hi Arun,

basics are this: datediff ("d", #06/09/2104#, #06/10/2104#) + 1 // +1 to include the start date.

Hit the F1 key to bring up the CR Help file and you'll find lots of examples and how to on handling dates, you can also use work days to compensate for weekends etc.
