I have two dates for eg. 12/02/2001 and 22/04/2001. I want to get the difference between the two in days. But when I try = A2-A1 is gives me #VALUE! On the other hand, =A1+1 works by adding 1 day. However, I want the difference of the two dates. How do I fix this?
Also check that the data type for your equation is general or numeric. Had similar issues today and changing to "general" fixed everything.
If Date1 is later than Date2, DATEDIF will return a #NUM! error. If either Date1 or Date2 is not a valid date, DATEDIF will return a #VALUE error.
Or, use DATEVALUE()
