>mi_cky, The diffrence between dates in terms of months is not defined properly beacuse of the different number off days in >each month. How would you define the answer to subtract  26/03/2004   from 25/12/2005. The difference between dates in >terms of milli sewcondsseconds  or days etc is easy, eg

so how do i accurately work out the amout of months between dates?
diff=d2.getTime()-d1.getTime()

based on this calculation
/calculate and output anything you want
//alert(diff+' milli secs')  
//alert(diff/1000+' secs')
//alert(diff/(1000*60)+' mins')  
//alert(diff/(1000*60*60)+' hours')
alert(diff/(1000*60*60*24)+' days')
