# Excel - between two dates

I'm trying to set up a spreadsheet so that each time I open it, the time between two dates is calculated. The two dates would be today (the day I open the spreadsheet) and a date about 10 years away. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanx

VoG™ and JimT. Used the final one of VoGs™, and works superbly.

.......... I seem to have a problem on my worksheet.

I have the formula...
=DATEDIF(Data!M2,C6,"y") & " Years " & DATEDIF(Data!M2,C6,"ym") & " Months " & DATEDIF(Data!M2,C6,"md") & " Days"

and in another cell (to calculate the "days" ...

= DATEDIF(Data!M2,C4,"d")

but on shows 29 days and the other shows 27 days.

Why is this?

Thanx again

In Data!M2 (on a seperate worksheet called Data) is the formaula for todays date { =TODAY() }

The other two cells I have copied from the wrong place and should be formula

=DATEDIF(Data!M2,C4,"y") & " Years " & DATEDIF(Data!M2,C4,"ym") & " Months " & DATEDIF(Data!M2,C4,"md") & " Days"

and

= DATEDIF(Data!M2,C4,"d")

Sorry, C4 is the date we are calculating to, it's 03/03/2008, just typed in to the cell.

I've tried changing the date in cell C4 and I always get a discrepancy of 2 days. I've even opened a new workbook and I still get the same problem.

I'm stumped !

I have opened a new document, only 1 worksheet.

Cell A1 has: =Today()

Cell A2 has: =DATEDIF(A1,C1,"y") & " Years " & DATEDIF(A1,C1,"ym") & " Months " & DATEDIF(A1,C1,"md") & " Days ”

Cell A3 has: manual inputted 03/03/2008

Cell A4 has: =DATEDIF(A1,C1,"d") & " Days"

BUT I STILL GER A DIFFERENCE OF 2 DAYS !!!
