MS Excel date calculation

in MS Excel (Office 2000), what formula will produce the number of days (including weekends) between two dates.  Example: the number of days from 2/14/99 - 2/26/99.  The column cells for "Date" are formatted as a date and is column A.  I am guessing that it is the DATEIF function, but don't know how this works.  Thanks.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you can just subtract the 2 cells and format the cell returning the difference as Number instead of date, this will return the number of days

This is really easy! Just subtract and add one...

A1: 2/14/99
A2: 2/26/99
A3: =(A2-A1)+1

Format A3 as a number.
