# Difference Between Two Dates

Sep 8, 2008

I want to take two dates, a start date and an end date and get the number of days elapsed.

I also want to enter the dates quickly, as in 070808 for 07/08/08 (not having to enter the dashes). I have tried 00/00/00 and ##"/"##"/"## in the cells format, number, custom.

Using that format, entering 070808 in A1, and 070809 for A2 and finally in A3 =DATEDIF(A4,B4,"d") to get the difference in days. What I get is 1 day instead of 365 days.
So it's thinking 70809 - 70808 = 1.

How do I get it to give me 365 days? What format can I use in the date cells?

## Difference Between Two Dates

May 22, 2014

I'm currently doing some research for the World Cup (Soccer) and I want to create a formula that finds the largest gap between two dates. Basically, I'm copy and pasting player data into an Excel template I've created and one of the columns in each player's data is a list of dates when he has played over the last 12 months. I want to create a formula that shows me the length (in days) of his longest break from playing competitive football AFTER Oct 1st 2013.

## Difference Between Dates

Feb 28, 2008

I'm trying to figure out a formula that tells me how many reports are overdue.
A report is due every six months. There may be times when more than one report got missed.

Right now, I have the Y6 recognizing that a report is late... period.

=IF(V6>(TODAY()),0,1)

So, what I need is:
If the Time Difference between V6 and T6 is greater than 6 months, divide the difference by 6 mos and return the answer to cell Y6 (rounded down with no decimals).

22.01.09
23.01.09
30.01.09

And I have the following in column B

Is there a formula that I could use?

## Median Difference Between Two Dates

Mar 7, 2014

I am trying to calculate the median difference between two dates but I am running into trouble. Here is sample data:

A B
1/1/13 2/1/13
1/2/13 2/5/13
1/4/13 1/25/13
1/7/13
1/10/13 1/18/13

I want to be able to type notes into column B such as "closed" or simply "X" (so i can keep track):

A B
1/1/13 2/1/13
1/2/13 2/5/13
1/4/13 1/25/13
1/7/13 X
1/10/13 1/18/13

I tried this:

in column c, use "datedif" function then calculate median from column C values.

problem: if left blank, value in row 4 comes up as #NUM!. if text is entered, value comes up as #VALUE!

I also tried this array: =median(abs(B5:B1-A5:A1))

Should i be trying the medianif function?

## Minimum Difference In Dates

Mar 23, 2009

I am trying choose the nearest date, from todays date out of a small array of numbers, and then also find the number of days between them. Additional to that, i would like it to ignore a date if that is in the past i.e. <now(). So I have a list of dates in column a, and i would like it to show me the number of days till the next closest 1, considering it hasnt passed already. I have tried many different ways and itteration of IF statement to solve this 1 but just cannot do it.

## Difference In Dates For Specified Time

Jul 19, 2009

Formula query
Column �A� list of dates correspondence in
Column �B� list of dates correspondence reply out
Need to calculate how many times the difference between date in and reply date is <= 5 in a specific time period.

The start date is entered in say, �K1�
The end date is entered in say, �L1�

Also calculate difference in dates between 14 days and 21 days for time period
Also with reply in column �B� not sent until over 28 days. I have tried SUMPRODUCT with (date_in=K1)*(date_out<=L1) for the dates but unsure how to define <=5

## Calculate Difference In Dates

Jul 27, 2009

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.

## Time Difference Between 2 Dates

Jan 13, 2013

I work at a call center and I get the data as Date, Time of calling and Duration of the call. Now since this is an overseas call center, even though the calls spills over 12midnight, the corresponding date shows as the date when the agent logged in.

So I get the data in this format, Date: 06/11/2012, Time: 19:00:00 - 04:00:00.

How do I calculate the time difference at one go without first getting the time difference from the time of login till midnight and then add that to the time difference of midnight till time of logout. I have attached a file for your review.

## Trying To Calculate The Difference Between Two Dates

Sep 11, 2008

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

## Difference Between 2 Dates In Workdays Only

Mar 4, 2008

I need to calculate the difference between two work days to understand how many days late we missed a due date. The NETWORKDAYS formula gives me the COUNT of the workdays, but I need the difference.

Example 1:
Expected Due date: 3/3/08
Actual Due date: 3/3/08

NETWORKDAYS for the dates above gives me the value of 1, but for my needs I need the resulting value to be zero.

Example 2:
Expected Due date: 3/3/08
Actual Due date: 3/5/08

NETWORKDAYS for example 2 provides a value of -3 (days late), but in reality it's only -2 (days late)

## Calculate Day Difference From 2 Dates

Jul 31, 2008

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

## Finding The Difference Between Two Dates And Times?

Feb 14, 2014

I am having difficulty finding the difference between two times and dates in Excel. I have researched this on Google and tried several formulas but none have worked for me. The format the data is currently in can be seen below:

A1: 1/3/2014 11:00:02.230 B1: 2/7/2014 08:42:37.637
A2: 2/12/2014 07:51:58.663 B2: 2/13/2014 05:36:31.893

(Note all times are military time format)

I want to display the difference in C1 in a format along the lines of "dd hh:mm". The data for seconds and fractions of a second is included in the source data but is not needed in the final results.

If the date and time falls on the same day, I have no trouble doing a simple "B3-A3" to determine the answer. For example:

A3: 2/5/2014 09:56:06.273 B3: 2/5/2014 10:39:51.34

Gives me an answer of: 0:43

Trying to do the same for A1 and B1 gives me this: "03 21:42" when I format it to "dd hh:mm".

Is there a formula that would give me the correct answer in both of these cases?

## Vacation Data - Calculate Difference Between Two Dates

## Calculate Difference Between Dates Excluding Weekends

Jun 8, 2008

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.

## Calculate Day Difference Between Dates Excluding Certain Days

Feb 2, 2008

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.

## Total Hour Difference Between 2 Dates & Times
