Calculate The Number Of Days Between Dates


Q. When I calculate staff expenses in Excel, I regularly need to calculate how many days between two dates. Is there an easy way to do that?

A. Yes, just use the expression

=“end date” - “start date”

So, if you want to know how many days before you can retire to your farm in Indiana on April 30, 2003 and today is January 1, 2003, use this formula:

=“1/1/2003” - “4/30/2003”

Be sure to include the quote marks around the dates.
