A couple ways to go about it, I’ll attach a workflow in a bit when i get some time.

First thing you do is read the excel file to a datatable.
Next, you want to convert the string (from excel) to a datetime for each row of your datatable.
After that is where you have 2 options:
Option 1: Do a for or while loop and add up the days by using the datetime.adddays method if datetime.dayofweek <> “Saturday” or “Sunday”
Option 2: Utilize excel’s built-in “Workday” function to calculate the number of workdays between the two dates.

Which option you choose depends on your workflow. If this is the final output, I would go as option 2. If you are simply using this as an input for another part of the process, then Option 1 is the way to go. I
will show you both workflows (i’ll edit this response with both XAMLs in a little bit)

EDIT: I’m just going to include option 1 here as I think it is the easiest/best to do in this situation. If you need help figuring out how option2 would work just let me know and i’ll be happy to provide that one later sachin_sharma.xaml (14.2 KB)
