No, a project. I use the formula all the time. Would be easier to use as a UDF.

With respect, I think this is a very, very bad idea.

Assuming that you are putting your DateDif UDF into the current workbook, then to use the UDF and not the native Excel function, you have to qualify the function call with the module name:

=Name_of_module.DateDif(<arguments>)

I fail to see how that is an improvement.  You should just use a different name for your UDF.
