Hi agajewski,

Try this:

  Dim strDate As String
 
  strDate = "26.07.2004 12:10:05"
 
  MsgBox DateDiff("d", CDate(Replace(strDate, ".", "/")), Now())


BFN,

Well, "it works on my computer"... so I hope the points can be awarded to me :)

If agajewski replies back then we will have a clearer idea if the solution was suitable.
