Hi fsprings,

Welcome to the forum.
you should not be getting any error.. I tried with =DAYS360(TODAY(),DATE(2013,2,3))+5, and I got the result as 35. Are you sure your date is not in text format ?

The number of extension days is in a different cell. a nd I have another formula calculating my end date = sum(startdate+ 90+ nuber of extension days.

As I showed in my example in post#2, you need to add the reference after Days360 function :-

=DAYS360(D1,E3)+J3

see attached:-Book1(40).xlsx

that isnt the correct about of days.it goes from 78 to 137 when u add a 30 day extention. is my end days formula causing that?

8. ## Re: excel formula: days remaining=end date-todays date+extention days

its 107 + 30 = 137 as I checked the workbook I posted in post #6. thanks.

i did check ur workbook, when u remove an extension the amount of days goes to 78 when you add the extension it shoots to 137 that isnt calculaing correctly.it shouldnt start at 107 the initial max start days is 90 hince the end days formula being the start date plus 90 days plus any extension days

11. ## Re: excel formula: days remaining=end date-todays date+extention days

consider the formula in green in cell F3:-

=DAYS360(D1,E3)+J3
=136

If I remove J3 from right, it gives 106 not 78 as you mentioned in your above quote.

Not sure where is the confusion ...
