    Please help,

    I would like to subtract two dates and have the total number of days returned. For example

    [Date Started] - [Current Date] = x (number of days)

    I haven't seen a function for this. Please let me know if it's possible.


    Thanks,

    Jnar

    Look in the Access help index for the functions DateDiff and DateAdd. They're fairly straightforward. You can also just subtract them and get a number.

    Sorry, forgot to say that the Date() function returns today's date, and the Now() function returns today's date with this second's time.
