What Excel worksheet formula or VBA script will give the number of days since the start of the fiscal year.
The start of the fiscal year will always be Oct 1st.
The formula must work for the next 10 years (through 2020)

Assuming that you get 1 on Oct 1st then try

=TODAY()-DATE(YEAR(TODAY()+92)-1,10,1)+1

or put =TODAY() in A1 and use

=A1-DATE(YEAR(A1+92)-1,10,1)+1
