Calculating Work Day Formulas


We've recently adopted BOBJ/Webi at my company and I find the software to be rather easy to use in some instances and mind-wreckingly hard in others. One roadblock myself and other users are bumping into is calculating work days. A definition of a work day in this instance would be Monday through Friday. The monkey wrench is that we would also like to subtract out holidays, such as July 4th and Thanksgiving. Then end product would be calculating out what work day the current date is and how many days it is out of so that a simple straight-line extrapolation can be made (Metric/Current Work Day)*Total Work Days. Also, what we invoice/ship is not accounted for until the following day... for example, today (2.22.10) would be the 15th workday in February out of 20 total work days.

Appreciate any and all help/assistance/counsel I can get on this.
