MySql DateDiff Query

I'm working on a Mysql Query as follows

SELECT  `Symbol` ,  `Date` ,  `AdjClose` ,  `Strike` ,  `Type` , (
`Bid` +  `Ask`
) /2 AS  `Price` , DATEDIFF(  'Expiration',  'Date' ) AS  'Days'
FROM  `IWM`.`OptionData` AS  `OptionData`
WHERE  `AdjClose` -  `Strike` <  '10'
AND  `AdjClose` -  `Strike` >  '-10'
ORDER BY  `Days` DESC
LIMIT 0 , 30

The Problem here is that DateDiff() should Take the difference from the two fields in the table and return the days between the two dates, at least as far as I know, but it only returns NULL.

What do I need to do to return a feild that is the number of days between these two date fields.

Thanks

I copy pasted your change as:

SELECT `Symbol`, `Date`, `AdjClose`, `Strike`, `Type`, ( `Bid` + `Ask` ) / 2 AS `Price`, DATEDIFF(  `Expiration`,  `Date` ) AS `Days` FROM `IWM`.`OptionData` AS `OptionData` WHERE `AdjClose` - `Strike` < '10' AND `AdjClose` - `Strike` > '-10'

But still no go with it.
