# Datedif / Calculate The Date Difference Between Two Dates

Feb 21, 2014
I need to calculate the date difference between two dates and get the result in the number of years and proportion of months ie;

20/09/99 to 01/02/02 is 2.33333333 years. I can use the DATEDIF function to get 2 years 4 months as the result but for the calc I'm doing I need it in the format of 2.33333333. Thinking I just need to tweak the DATEDIF a bit but just can't work it out!

I'm trying to make a formula to calculate the difference in a date between two dates. For exaple, in my business we have a due day for something. So the due date could be Feb 10, we need to know if it was done on time, late, or early. So I've gotten it to display late by doing this: =IF(B2>A2, "Late", (A2-B2)) But then I can't figure out how to incorporate this: =IF(B2=A2, "On Time") or =IF(B2<A2, "Early").

I would like to displaly this all in one cell. So if the due date is Feb 10 and it's turned in Feb 8 it's early, turned in Feb 10 it says on time, turned in Feb 11 it's late. I also tried this but it didn't work: =OR(IF(B2>A2,"Late")*IF(B2=A2,"On Time")*IF(B2<A2,"Early"))

I'm trying to calculate the number of days between dates in column A and B. I've looked at the examples in this site and thought I used the formula correctly, but the cell returns an error message when I type: =DATEDIF(A1,B1,"D")

I need to calculate the amount of time between two dates, and show it in the number of hours and minutes. My dates are formatted to show the time in Zulu time. So 1406 = 2:06PM.

Here is what I have:

A1 = 6/4/08 1406Z

B1 = 6/5/08 0402Z

For this example, the formula should return a result of 13 hours and 58 minutes. With the result, there is no need to desingate Zulu time with a 'Z'. But I need the result in a format that will allow me to calculate an average for all my data.

I have 2 columsn with data that looks like this:

Creation DateResolved DateDifference in days7/1/2011 4:221/9/2012 14:587/1/2011 8:567/1/2011 13:517/1/2011 11:438/3/2011 17:157/1/2011 11:597/14/2011 14:077/3/2011 22:477/5/2011 11:037/4/2011 1:399/15/2011 15:207/4/2011 8:367/5/2011 9:357/5/2011 7:047/6/2011 9:107/5/2011 9:177/6/2011 10:007/5/2011 10:471/9/2012 14:37

I am trying to figure out what formula to use to calculate the difference between the creation date and resolved date in hours and days. That is, In once column I would like to see the difference in 'hours' and in another column I would like to see the difference in 'days'.

This is more of a query on date dif

I was trying to calculate the difference between two dates on excel

I had a look through the search message board and searched the web generally where I came across the datedif function

I had found that in order to get the number of years it was

=datedif(startdate,enddate,"Y")

for months same formula"YM" and for days use "MD" in place of "Y" in the original formula

My question is when using datedif to calculate the number of days between two days it initialy gave me the right answer

Number of days between 01/08/2008 - 22/08/2008 - Answer 21 days

Using date dif gave me 21 days but when i did

01/08/2008 - 01/09/2008 - this gave me 0

Am I entering the formula wrong or does datedif simply not pick the difference if the days havent changed even though the month has ?

I then found i could simply minus one from the other , which then had me asking what is the point of date dif

is anyone aware of a formula/macro that can calculate (in days, hours and minutes) how much time has elapsed between two date and time stamps?

For example [30/07/2008 00:30] and [01/08/2008 01:45], so in days hours and minutes it would look somewhat like this: 02:01:15

Example.xlsx

how to calculate the difference in value of an item between two dates on a pivot table. I have one table that feeds the Pivot Table and it has three fields:

Data as of Date

Item

Value

So each day, the Data as of Date is updated to the current day and the items are the same but the values are different. I need to calculate the difference in value between the most recent date and x days ago. I cannot figure out how to do this via Pivot Table.

I'm just trying to calculate the difference between dates in two columns and applying conditional formatting based on if it is a positive or negative number. But when there is a null value in either of the date columns I don't want anything returned.

So far I'm either getting a 0 or a FALSE.

Column A = Date 1 Column B = Date 2 Column C = Formula

=IF(NOT(ISBLANK(B2)), B2-A2, )

I have two Rows of data. Each row contains a unique Name column and separate columns for Date, Hour and Minute. I would like to calculate the Time difference in Days, Hours and Minutes between the two Dates. I’m not sure if the way I’ve set it up is the most practical. I’ll attach the spreadsheet to better explain.

I have a pivot table and I created a formula that says:

=jobCompletedDate-jobCreatedDate

and so for example, I have

3/31/2014 7:21AM - 3/31/2014 6:33AM

and that difference is giving me: .03367

I'm not sure what this value represents......the difference in dates, converted to ??

I wanted to calculate the difference between dates, excluding the weekends. After much thought i used =NETWORKDAYS(A1,B1)+IF(NETWORKDAYS(A1,A1)+ NETWORKDAYS(B1,B1)=2,-SIGN(NETWORKDAYS(A1,B1)),0) that seemed to be working fine. However, I had a problem today with this formula when my start day was saturday (24/05/08) and the last day was monday (26/05/08). What i want is that when i take the difference between these two days, i should get zero as answer as we are not including the weekends in calculation so the start date should ideally be the first weekday which is Monday. However, the formula is giving me 1 as an answer.

This formula works fine if i select 27/05/08 as last date in which case i get 2 as an answer which is right. In gist, what i am looking for is a formula which will give me the difference between two dates and exclude the weekends from the calculation. The last date can't be a weekend, but the start date can. Hence, whenever the start date is a weekend, the formula should take monday as a start day.

I am attempting to get the formula in Column "E" (see attached excel file) to work based off the individual reps 'days off / holidays' (Columns K:P (or more as needed) that they might have. the formula I am using (which works fine) is:

=IF(C2=D2,0, SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(ROW(INDIRECT(C2&":"&D2)),2)={2,3,4,5,6,7})*(COUNTIF($K$2:$S$2,ROW(INDIRECT(C2&":"&D2)))=0)))

My issue comes up when I am coping this formula for say 100+ rows. When I copy the formula to all of the rows, the (COUNTIF($K$2:$S$2) becomes static and does not realize that the row (ie. Row 26 Rep C) has different days off than Rep A. I can manually change the reference for the countif to specify the correct row to their own days but that becomes tedious very quickly. I was wondering if anyone has come across a way to make the countif work based off of that the name in Column B matches the name in Column G then looks 'to the right' and uses the 'days off' that are listed for the corresponding Rep. I have tried a few different ideas but nothing has worked so far.

I have a spreadsheet with Received Date/Time in C2 and Resolved Date/Tim in D2, Work Start Time in E2, Work End Time in F2. C2 and D2 are in dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm AM/PM format:04/03/2008 10:27 AM06/03/2008 1:06 PM9:00:00 AM5:00:00 PM

I need to be able to calculate the resolution time of each request in hours/mins excluding weekends and public holidays. I've tried using the NETWORKDAYS function but it doesn't seem to pick up multiple days between the Received and Resolved dates/times. I have put the Public Holidays in my spreadsheet ( attached) in AA2-AG2.

I need also to calculate difference between dates(dd-mm-aaaa hh:mm) in workhours ( hh:mm):

The work period is 9-18 with lunch interval 13-14 The startdate and end date could be out of the work hours and i can't include the extra hours. I can have several days (workdays) at the difference, but i should maintain the format hh:mm.

Ex1:

Startdate 05-03-2013 18:34 ( date to calculation should be 05-03-2013 18:00)

end date 06-03-2013 10:30

Time Difference 1:30 ( from 9 to 10:30 of 06-03-2013 )

will be equal to:

Startdate 06-03-2013 8:34 ( date to calculation sould be 06-03-2013 9:00 )

end date 06-03-2013 10:30

Time Difference 1:30 ( from 9 to 10:30 of 06-03-2013 )

Ex2:

Startdate 06-03-2013 12:01

End date 06-03-2013 14:28

Time Difference 01:29

I need to then be able to enter a date into L6 and see a result in B6 and on and on.

I request a help:

A1 = 01-Apr-2009

B1 = 02-Apr-2009

C1 = 03-Apr-2009

D1 = Blank

E1 = 05-Apr-2009

F1 = 06-Apr-2009

What is the best suitable formula to find "First blank cell", then "date difference" between today and its previous cell's (i.e today minus "C1" in this case).

I am currently usins Excel 2007 and would like to calculate the diferrence in hours and minutes (ideally in decimal e.g 4:30 should be reflected as 4.5) between two date and time groups, excluding the non-working time between 17:00 and 09:00, weekends and holidays.

On some Military computers the Add-ins were not installed, therefore the WEEKNUM function cannot be used.

The task is to calculate the time interval (in whole weeks) between two dates.

(Every start date is to be calculated as a whole week – same for the End date).

I tried but the most but came up with the incorrect formula in the attached workbook.

I have a DATEDIF column which I have used to calculate the age of a group of people from their dates of birth. This has produced results in cells which look like this: Age is 44 years, 1 Months and 28 Days

Where I am stuck is that I need to calculate the average of this column so I get the average of the total group. Is this possible?

I am trying to subtract two dates to find out whether an invoice is 6 months past due (regardless of number of days). I use DATEDIF in my formula and it works fine until now. It seems the function takes number of days into account and won't return the desire result when there are 31 days. I want to find out whether the number of months between two date are greater than or equal to 6 months without considering the number of days. I am attaching a sample worksheet for better explanation. As you can see, October is not working right.

I have a spreadsheet that lists items in column A with a start date in column B. What I need to do is in in column C list the next review date in increments of 5 days, but I only want the next day to show from the current date, not the inputted start date.

For example:

Column A Column B Column C

Item Start Date Next Review Date

Item A 12-Sept-09 27-Sep-09

Can I get a formula to calculate the increments and only show the next calendar date for the review, and then to change to the next date once the previous date has passed.

Alternatively, I have another sheet in my workbook that calculates the dates, is there some way I can display the next future date in a line of dates?

I need to calculate the difference in Years, Months and Days between:

Date 1 = TODAY()

Date 2 = 4 years after a date in cell A1, which will always be earlier than today's date

(A bit of backround - I have certain risk management procedures that have a lifespan of 4 years. I want to calculate the time between now and 4 years after the date the procedure was completed, essentially to see how long before they have to be redone).

So far I have:

=DATEDIF(A1+4,TODAY(),"y")&"y "&DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"ym")&"m "&DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"md")&"d"

But that returns #NUM!.

Removing the +4 obviously just calculated the difference between the date in A1 and today, but I need the date in A1 PLUS 4 years and today.

I have also tried:

=(DATE(YEAR(A1)+4,MONTH(A1),DAY(A1))-TODAY())/365.25

which works in theory, however:

a) no consideration for leap years

b) does not return nY, nM, nD - only the decimal.

However I would be happy to use this method if I could convert it to Years Months Days.

I'm trying to combine monthly calculations with "today" and with "workdays"

Example:

start date = 01/01/2009

today's date 09/16/2009

formula result = 10/01/2009 ; or if 10/01/2009 is a Sunday, result = 09/29/2009 (not 02/01/2009, 03/01/2009, etc)

=edate gives me a month but it doesn't skip weekends or calculate beyond today's date

I need to determine a formula which will allow me to calculate a future date based upon a current date with varying time periods.

For example:

I have a bill which is paid on the 15th and last business day of each month. I would like to be able to see the next due date regardless of what day of the week it is.

I have a bill which is paid every other Tuesday. I would like to know the next due date without having to enter +14 for every due date in the future. In other words, it is preferable to be able to open the spreadsheet and automatically see the next due date, not use autofill to repeatedly add +14 to a previous date which would limit the # of future due dates that could be calculated.

I have a bill which is paid on the last business day of each month, not the last Friday of each month. I would need excel to return a value for the last day of the month which = Monday-Friday, regardless of what day of the week it may be as long as it isn't Saturday or Sunday(holiday exclusion would be nice but not required).

I'm trying to automate the attached schedule so that the formulas in H stop increasing once the amount in column J equals zero. So far everything I've tried either gives me a circular reference error or ends up giving me the same result as if I depreciated the asset an additional month.
