Does anyone know how to do the following:

Cell 1      Cell 2      Cell3
-------      ------       -----
Date1       Date2     Result

The macro needs to do following:  Take the difference between Date1 and Date2, where Date2 is farther out.  The Result is true if the difference in dates in number of days is less than a specific number (say, 90).

You don't need a macro. Put this formula in cell 3

=IF(B1-A1<90,"True","False")

Let's say Cell1 is A1, Cell2 is B1 and Cell3 is C1

Then, in C1 you'd write:

=(B1-A1)>90

Do you need a macro?

If dates are in A2 and B2 try a formula in C2

=B2-A2<90
