NETWORKDAYS Holiday “Errors”

  1. The convention for US holidays falling on a weekend is that those on a Saturday are lost, whereas those on a Sunday roll to the following Monday. Therefore for 1978 the New Year’s holiday would be on the 2nd, and Veteran’s Day would be lost.
    This rule is straightforward for US holidays, but can quite involved for other countries.

  2. “I had ten holidays listed, but it was only subtracting eight!”
