I want to breakdown an Excel sheet by having it in a specific format. Right now, the sheet is like this

FROM           TO     TOTAL
01/27/12    01/27/12    1
03/09/12    03/09/12    1
04/11/12    04/13/12    3
12/24/12    01/04/13    7
06/04/12    06/13/12    8

I want to have Excel break down the dates on a row by row basis excluding Saturdays and Sundays. Example: 04/11/12 to 04/13/12. 3 days total should become


Any means of how to achieve this?

Have you imported the data with space as the delimiter? – CodeBlend May 2 '13 at 10:59
To help improve your question, can you tell us what you have tried? – CharlieRB May 2 '13 at 11:50
Your 12/24/12 -> 01/04/13 = 7 example works only if you exclude holidays as well as weekends. That probably makes the question harder. – Scott May 2 '13 at 18:21

Slightly manual process would be to insert the number of rows you want. Then select the starting date and swipe down and highlight those new rows. Using the Fill -> Series dialog (in the Editing panel on the Home tab) you can fill in the dates with Sat and Sun skipped (just select Date and Weekday)

You can get a pop-up menu that gives you similar capabilities if you “swipe”/drag with the right mouse button. – Scott May 2 '13 at 18:19
