- Excel stores dates as sequential serial numbers so they can be used in calculations. By default, January 1, 1900 is serial number 1, and January 1, 2008 is serial number 39448 because it is 39,448 days after January 1, 1900.
- Most functions automatically convert date values to serial numbers.
- If start_date is not a valid date, NxWKNDUR returns the #VALUE! error value.
- If start_date does not fall on, immediately before or after a long weekend, NxWKNDUR returns the #DIV/0! error value.
- If Calendar is not recognized (i.e. not supported), NxWKNDUR returns the #VALUE! error value.
