Convert all the date parameters to integers and substract like integers to make comparisons

Dim Release as Date

toDay = CInt(Format(Now, "dd"))
thsMth = CInt(Format(Now, "mm"))
thsYr = CInt(Format(Now, "yyyy"))
RelDay = CInt(Format(Release, "dd"))
RelMth = CInt(Format(Release, "mm"))
RelYr = CInt(Format(Release, "yyyy"))

Diffyr = Relyr - thsyr
Diffmth = RelMth - thsMth
DiffDay = RelDay - toDay

Hope this helps

ndb I think you have the function the wrong way around

This function should work

MsgBox DateDiff("n", Date1, Date2)
'n is minutes

e.g

Private Sub Command1_Click()
MsgBox DateDiff("n", "1-Jan-00 1 am", "2-Jan-00 2 am")
End Sub

will give msgbox 2500
