Hi Christine,

I'm guessing you want to count days.

When to dates are entered =A2-A1 should work. You might have to change the format of the formula cell to number to display the right value.

Best regards,

Hy TrowaD

I did that but it does not work. For exampler IF A1= 01/01/2013 and A2 = 01/02/2013. When I put A3: =A2-A1 the result is 31. But i need it to be 32 (to include the start and end date) . And the formula =A2-A1+1. i can not use cozo it will put 1 in the empty cells.

Hi Christine,

Then you have to use brackets as in:
=(A2-A1)+1

from what i got, the issue is blank date. In that case requirement is 0 days.
try this

=IF(OR(A1="",a2=""), 0, a2-A1 + 1)
