What if you only counted weekdays?
In some cases, you might want to skip weekends and count only the weekdays. This could be useful if you know you have a deadline based on a certain number of business days. If you are trying to see what day falls on the exact date difference of 879 weekdays before Mar 19, 2023, you can count up each day skipping Saturdays and Sundays.
Start your calculation with Mar 19, 2023, which falls on a Sunday. Counting forward, the next day would be a Monday.
To get exactly eight hundred seventy nine weekdays before Mar 19, 2023, you actually need to count 1230 total days (including weekend days). That means that 879 weekdays before Mar 19, 2023 would be November 5, 2019.
If you're counting business days, don't forget to adjust this date for any holidays.
