    Need help setting up a date formula in Excel '97.

    Have first date of today, have second date of next available appointment. Need Excel to formuate the turn-around time (i.e. today 4/6/04, next appt date 5/5/04 = 29 days.

    How do I do this??? It's driving me crazy. It's probably something quite simply that I'm not think of!

    Thanks!

    In addition to the Datedif function provided by Phil, you can format the cell that houses the formula as General and use,

    =B1-A1&" days"

    where B1 is the end date and A1 is the start date.
