My question is...Is there a way for Excel to calculate the remaining days

until an event? I got as far as (Insert-Function-Day360) My only proble

is...is I need one date to be the current date. and the other to be what ever

date is found in the adjacent column.

For example...I need the spreadsheet to show me how many days are left

until I need to send out a notice to our clients. and I would like it to

update each day I open it. I am pretty sure you have to run a macro but I am

not sure how to do that. Can anyone help me

    • Hi

      use dATEDIF in combination with TODAY(). See:

      Assume the date of the event is stored in A1.

      The number of days until that date can be represented by the formula:

      =A1-TODAY()

      Format the cell as General.
