If I have 2 columns in a spreadsheet, depicting a date in each, with the following format yyyy/mm/dd. How can I calculate the number of calender days and not just the difference between the two? e.g. 19970202 and 19970530.
I basically need to know the calender days difference.

Create your coloums, making sure the cell is formatted to the above i.e yyyy/mm/dd
In you formula column put he following formula sum(b2-a2)(changing the cell references to fit in with your spreadsheet.)
The format the formula cell to number with no decimal places.
This will result in the answer in calendar days.
If this is not the result you are looking for let me know.
