Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Calculating date differences with formulas and the DAYS function, part of Excel 2013: Working with Dates and Times.
…The ability to calculate the differences between two dates, the amount of time,…the number of days between dates, is an easy thing to handle in Excel.…There are two ways to do it.…We can use a formula.…If we look on this worksheet called date difference.…We've got an installation date in column A, a…removal date in column B, perhaps for pieces of equipment,…we simply want to use a formula here, to…calculate the number of days elapse between installation and removal.…Equal the later date In this case, B2, minus the earlier date,…in this case, A2, and we get the number of days elapsed.…
And double click in the lower right hand corner,…we can see what happens throughout the entire column.…A new function in Excel 2013 is called Days.…Not necessarily shorter or better.…It's going to give us the same answer.…It starts off by indicating the ending date, and this…case, it's B2, start date, A2 and I'll complete this.…Same answer and double clicking, we see that all…the other answers are working with the same results.…
