You can use excel function "=Today()". This will return current date.
Now you can do all the comparison and validation as you want with respect to the returned result.

However, you may be already aware that this function entirely depends on the system date.

HI softpro2k,
    Could you suggest me how to validate that date validation using this excel function. Allowing that 10 days less than the current date.  If you have any code or links send it to me. Thank You.

It would be better if you validate the date in Excel itself and use the result (True or False) in your Javascript or other function.

Considering the date to be validated is entered from Cell A2. you could use the following formula in B2 and drag it to copy the formula downwards :   =IF(AND(TODAY()-A2<=10, TODAY()-A2>=0),"True","False")

Please See attached Image with this formula.
