     Here is how I do it. I use Column A for the beginning date,Column B
for the ending date, and Row 1 for the column headings.
     I enter the first beginning date in cell A2 and first ending date
in cell B2. I continue adding the beginning and ending dates down these
two columns.
     In cell C2, I enter this formula: =B2-A2. That is I enter the equal
sign followed by B2 followed by a minus sign followed by A2. Use the
Enter key to enter this formula into cell C2.
     Click cell C2, and you should see a little box at the bottom right
of the outline of this cell. Use the mouse cursor to drag it down column
C until you come to the last pair of beginning and ending dates. This
will give you the number of days that exist between each pair of dates.

Hi :)
I think you are not fully subscribed to the list yet.  Is there a
"confirmation email" waiting in your spam/junk folder?

Don't you just format the cells as Dates rather than numbers or text and
then just do one cell - the other and have the answer cell formatted as date

Tom :)
