easy in this world.Many things are.What has been created in the calc
        sheet is the day number of the year which is followed by the
        "/".  In the cell beside the result is the remaining number of
        days in the year. Here's an example of what I'd like to see for
        this date (February 10, 2020)41 / 325In this case 325 is the remaining number of days in 
the year
        2020 from the date Feb. 10. The cell in which the formula used
        to obtain the figure of 325 is-=365-S4+1"S4" is the cell where the day number of the year 
is located
        returned by the formula, as mentioned below-=DATEDIF($Begin_Here.$E$76,R4,"d")" / "I still 
don't think this is the clearest or best formula for what
      you need. (And you've lost the ampersand, though I suspect that's
      a "feature" of your mail system.)What happens to the remaining days
        number in cell S4 the dreaded error - #VALUE! is returned. I
        suspect this has something to do with the formatting of the cell
        but can't figure it out.It's nothing to do with formatting: it's to do with, er, values.
      It's hardly surprising, since - as I made clear - what you have
      now put in S4 is not the number 41 but the *string* "41 / ", and
      that is not a number. You cannot calculate with strings (unless
      they happen to represent numbers in a simple way). What do you
      expect if you try to divide "three" by "two"? "one point five"?!Any ideas?Yes. Take the 
concatenated slash off your formula so that it
      creates the number 41 in S4, as before. Then use=S4" / "366-S4for your result.I trust this 
helps.Brian Barker
