Hi All,

I am using the following formula in a calculated column (Days)
=DATEDIF(AssignToAnalyst,ResponseDate,"D")

For some of the items it works and for some it does not.
I don't understand why.

Below is my list:
I know why I know why it shows #NUM! in 2 of the columns but not sure why I get 334 in the last column.  

I'm just trying to find the number of days between "AssignToAnalyst" and "ResponseDate".

Any ideas?

if you simply subtract the AssingToAnalyst date from the RespondDate, you get the same number, 334.   You can actually use the simple subtraction instead of the DATEDIF to get same results.
