With 7/4/2011 in cell A1 and 12/31/2011 in cell B1, I can type this formula in cell C1 to find out that there are 180 days between the 4th of July and New Year’s Eve.
Between date and today
If you always want to find out how many days past due an invoice might be, you could use this function TODAY() in cell E2 subtracting the Invoice Due.
Calculating a future or past date
