[Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
I have a commission report I am building and would like to have a
formula to identify the number of workdays between the selected date
range that the report is ran against.

The tables I am using are:
InvDtl
InvMisc
Customer

I have built a report that identifies invoice extended price for each
salesman for a selected date range

We are gauging a bonus payout based on last year's sales performance.

I have the amount of last year's sales per salesman (this is my
annual target) I can divide this by 250 for a daily target

I have the report set up to print "From invoice date" / "To Invoice
date" (this is my date range) Not sure how to get the number of
workdays out of this.

I am trying to display a running comparison with actual sales from
date range (current sales), to a comparison of last years
sales "average" annual sales divided by the number of workdays in the
selected date range.

The piece I cannot figure out is how to get the number of workdays in
the selected date range (we only work Mon-Fri) (IE: 1-12-09 / 1-20-09
= 7 workdays)

I hope I have explained this ok!
Thank you for any direction.

Without getting into detail, if you want true workdays, not only do you need to subtract Saturdays and Sundays, but you also need to subtract holidays. If you are really on top of things, you may want to subtract vacation and sick days, as well. A few (US) holidays are defined as specific dates (New Year's Day, Independence Day, and Christmas) and are reasonably easy to account for. The other holidays are more difficult, especially if you throw in things like Good Friday. The only solution I have come up with is to maintain a database of all the holidays and reference those in my report. This is not a trivial task, unfortunately. However, you also do not want to hold your people accountable for a level of work when they are not even at work.

Sorry I did not answer your question, but hopefully I gave you a few thoughts.

What I would say as well is that you're going to probably need to
leverage running totals, and define a formula field that determines for
each date in your report detail whether or not this is a day you can
count. Then you can use the running total (which uses the
CountThisDay() formula) to determine the denominator of your
computation, probably in the report footer.

Depending on what you're doing, you may need to process your data
twice - maybe grouped in the report itself, but running through all of
the Details rows to determine your number of countable days. You can
insert a subreport in say the report header and link that subreport to
the same dataset. This gives you a way to do what you want.

Just thinking off the top of my head.

Thank you guys for the reply.

I am new to this crystal stuff, I think I am following where Brian
is comming from, but am not farmiliar enough with formula options
(or creation)to see this through. I have been using "Crystal Reports
XI" Official guide by Neil Fitzgerald to learn my way into Crystal
reports. Does anyone know of a book to purchase or a place to go to
find sample formulas that can be used as templates to build from and
help me find my way through this stuff?

I will try to work with this CountThisDay formula and see where it
gets me.

Thanks again for the help

Ken,
I found the book Crystal Reports XI Complete Reference by George Peck to be very helpful for all of the functions including examples of each.

I will second that comment. That book sits right behind my desk and is my go to for any Crystal XI questions. It is what I used to learn Crystal.
