# of days between two dates


I manage an intake process and I am trying to determine the number of days between two dates (received date and decision date). That piece of it is pretty simple. There are two parts that I cannot figure out.

  1. If the decision date has not been set, the cell for number of days shows an error. I want the cell blank until the decision date has been set.
  2. If the received date and decision date are the same day, I want the # of days to equal 1.

    Hey @tiffany stephenson

    We can accomplish this using IF statements.

    =IF(ISDATE([Decision Date]@row), IF(NETDAYS([Received Date]@row, [Decision Date]@row)=0, 1, NETDAYS([Received Date]@row, [Decision Date]@row)))

    If you're using a different NetDays formula, swap it into the formula instead of NetDays.

    Does this work for you?
