# IsWorkday UDF without a table

,

While the other methods for calculating holidays ect use a table to store the holidays, this inline UDF goes the opposite route, by returning 1 if the given date is a weekday that also does not fall on a number of holidays.  Examples shown allow for easy extension to other holidays as deemed necessary.

```/*****************************************************************************
* funcIsWorkday - Returns 1 if the specified date is a M-F workday that does
* not fall on any of the following holidays:
*New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day,
*Thanksgiving Day and day after, Christmas even, Christmas
*day after Christmas, New Years Eve
