I need a formula that calculates the duration between two date fields but only counts working day (Monday through Friday) and not just the total number days.

So for example;

01-Apr-2015 to 07-Apr-2015 - Normal total duration formula would display result as 6 days but I require it to show just 4 days for this example.

Thanks in advance for assistance.

No problem, there is a function for that as a formula-numeric field.
