Calculating days and dates

I need to calculate the number of working days (ie Monday to Friday)
from the date entered in cell D4 (22/07/2005).  This needs to update
each day in cell E4.

I can do this not based on working days, by entering 


but where in the formula do I reference it to working days or network
days?  HELP!

You can use the NETWORKDAYS function to do what you ask.


where D4 is the start date and E4:E10 is a list of holidays (entered i
valid date format) to exclude from your count (optional, omit or adjus
the range to meet your needs).

In your example, 17 is returned with TODAY() being 15Aug2005 and n
holidays counted in this timeframe.  Note that it counts the first da
in the range as day 1 and the last day listed is also counted.)

I believe you need to have the Analysis Tool Pack Add-In installed t
have the function available.  Click Tools>Add-ins and place a check b
this item and click OK.

Sorry about this but a recent question re custom date format was a special case type of scenario and I'm finding that I still don't know how to change to my preferred date format for most spreadsheets.

Outlook fails to connect to exchange every second day.
Hi, I have a client who uses exchange and asked about a bizzare behaviour they have been experiencing. Apparently every (approximate) two days when they come into the office their outlook will fail to connect to exchange. What they have been doing to fix this is to Reboot exchange. For some reason this is working. What I am hoping to find is a "fix" that doens't require a reboot. :) There seems to be an error in the event log indicating that the exchange database is larger than it is allowed to be. Could this cause the experience they are seeing? Any clu...

Formula to calculate time
I was wondering if anybody knows of a formula to allow you to do calculations based on time. In other words, say I want to put a list of songs on a CD and their durations.

So for example, using the information below: Ghostbusters - Ray Parker Jr. --- 5:23 (Just a guess) Phantom of the Opera Overture --- 3:55 (Another guess) Instead of 8:78, I'd want to see 9:18 Can this be done?
