SharePoint calculated column error

I have the following formula to calculate day difference between two dates:
=IF(OR(LEN(Date1)=0,LEN(Date2)=0)," ",DATEDIF(Date1,Date2,"d"))

Open in new window

It works great but with one exception. In a very rare situation Date2 can be greater than Date1 and the result will be negative. In this case SharePoint will display an ugly #NUM! error code.

Can you please modify the above to show 0 (zero) instead of the error code if the Date2 is greater than Date1? Thanks!
