Days between dates + Today

 

Hi,

 

I am currently working on a formula to obtain the number of days a person has been absent.

 

That's why I have tried to use the basic formula to count the days

 

I have used the basic formula:

 

Absence End Date - Absence Start Date.

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't count the 1st date.

 

So, is there a way to add to the formula a +1 to count the 1st date as well?

 

For example, the 1st line should be 1 absence as it is an absence.

@alexcatala , Most of the time in case of datediff you have add one

 

int([Absence End Date] - [Absence Start Date]) +1

 

or

datediff( [Absence Start Date], [Absence End Date], day)  +1
