Finding the Number of Days Between Two Dates

In #Excel, the formula used to find the number of days between two dates is the DAYS function.

  • To calculate the days in between, for example, I’m using my birthdate as the start date, and today’s date as the end date.

Let’s find the total number of days between these two dates.

  • In the Excel cell where you want to display the total days, you can write the following formula: =DAYS(end_date, start_date)

Explaining the Excel Formula; after the “=” sign, we write the DAYS function (for the English formula), opening parentheses to first select the Excel cell that contains the end date. In our example image, it’s cell D3. Then, we insert a semicolon between them and select the cell that contains the start date, which is D2 in our example image.

When we press the Enter key, the total number of days between these two specified dates will appear.
