    Unanswered: Deduct Weekends and public holidays in Access

    Hi all

    I'm not sure if this has been handled in this forum before, but is there a way of deducting holidays and weekends in a access database? We have a Access database where we would like the weekends and holidays deducted automatically. Any help will be appreciated.

    subtracting weekedns is doable making use of the relevant date/time functions to decide how many weekends fall between specific dates

    subtracting holidays is trickier unless you define what the holidays are, and they are usually unique.

    usually the best way round this is to store the holidays in a calendar or similar.
