Description Jon C. 2013-12-22 18:08:04 UTC
Created attachment 82148 [details]

I am trying to calculate the number of days between two dates:
A1: 12/22/1954 or 22/12/1954
A2: =TODAY()
A3: =datediff(B1,A1)

The cell A3 reads Error 508, however I cannot quite understand what is wrong with my input.

Error documentation at, is vague.

Use same format for dates
Use function DAYS
Use semicolon

DATEDIF is not implemented at this time
