To calculate the difference in days, use the DATEDIF function as shown in the following formula:

A2 - Start date
b2 - end date

Thron: You can use a sumproduct for that
=SUMPRODUCT((C1:C19="Female") * (A1:A19="x") *1)
How can count dates between 2 cells in excel, 1jan - 2jan to count as 2 days.

To count the number of days in a range is very simple.

Eg: I want to count the number of days between 1/1/9 and 22/4/9

If cell A1 is start date (1/1/9), and cell B1 is end date (22/4/9), and the result will appear in cell C1, then the formula in C1 is simply = B1-A1

But, the trick is, you have to format cell C1 to be a General Number with no decimals, otherwise is just returns another date format response. Result in this example is 111 days.

Hope this helps.
And how do I exclude the weekends and holidays?
Can you show me the sample , such as =sum(11/05/2009),-(6/07/200).
I mean give me sample how to do it ,thank in advance /Plai
The simpleast and accurate one is C1=B1-A1, after formating the cell where the result will be inserted
this was really really helpful! thank u!
It work!! thank you! :o)
using =networkdays("range") will exclude weekends. to exclude holidays, you must create a list of holidays, name this list and reference it in the network days formula... =networkdays(A1:A2, holidays)
How about if you want to include the weekends, for example 01/03/2016 - 31/03/2016 the sum should be 31 days?
Thanks Ivan,

with this whenever the cells is empty indicate 1 and can't using SUM for the month
