can you suggest formula to extract number of days from the below:9/21/1900 6:43:56 PM

it is 265 days..

Thanks

You can't extract a number of days from a single point in time. To extract a number of days you need a start date and an end date.

Read up on the DATEDIF function to see if that is what you are looking for.

In the example given all you need to do is change the cell's format to "General". Since, according to Excel, time began in 1/1/1900 = 1 and 9/21/1900 = 265 and 1/21/2013 = 41295. Your example will actually equate to 265.7805093. - the .7805 reflecting the time. If you want to get just the day irrespective of the time you can calculate that as =Int(A1) and, again, formt the cell as General.

The question is, why do you need this?

Thanks Altek, INT formula works...
