We have some data in our excel Workbook, suppose we have ordered a few things online and we have written the DATE OF ORDER and when each item has been delivered we have also written the DATE OF DELIVERY. So we will calculate the Number of Days each item took to be delivered.
Column A is showing the Name of Items ordered, Column B is showing Date of order, and Column C is Showing Date of Delivery. And Column D will contain number of Days each item took to be Deliver.

- When you click on NETWORKDAYS a window will appear that will ask you for Select cells as argument, Start Date and End Date. We have selected Cell B1 as Start Date and Cell C1 as End date.
- After you have entered arguments Click OK, and your Desired Calculation will Appear in Cell D1, which is Net Days to Deliver an Item of Cell A1.
- Now we have Calculated Net Days for one item, now we need to Calculate Net Delivery Days for other three items, for that we don’t need to insert that formula again, there is another easy way to do that. Click on the Cell D1 that contains formula, then click and hold on Fill Handle and drag downward to the last cell with values or items you want to calculate.
- Your Days of Delivery for all items will be calculated. Wasn’t this so easy?
