# Formula using dates

#### VZezulka

I need to place a formula in my worksheet that will calculate the the number of days in each date period. Example 6/5/2002 start end 7/10/2002.

### Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
=datedif(a1,a2,"d")

Or

=a2-a1 and format cell as General

Try =DAYS360(date,date) Date can be hard coded or a cell reference. look in help for other date manipulation ideas
