Hello Experts.  

What I am trying to do is to count down the number of days between 2 dates.  I first date is manually entered.  The second date is to be calculated out either  a number of months or number of days.  Then the actual number to be shown in the cell is the number of remaining days or months and that number is to countdown based on today().

Here is what I have so far.  I know there is a better way and it does not countdown.

=IF($B$23="","",EDATE($B$23,6))-DATEDIF($B$70,TODAY(),"d")

Thanks in advance!

You can get the remaining days by just subtracting today from the calculated date:
=IF($B$23="","",EDATE($B$23,6)-TODAY())
