## Instructions

### To calculate the number of days between any two dates (ie. the left hand form above):

Step 1 – Choose your starting date
Select the starting date of your choice using the drop-down arrows next to each selection box. When you open the Day Calculator, the date is automatically set to today’s date. As the calculator takes today’s date from your system clock, it is important to make sure that your system date is correctly set for this function to work properly.

Step 2 – Choose your ending date
Select the ending date of your choice using the drop-down arrows next to each selection box. When you open the Day Calculator, the date is automatically set to today’s date. As the calculator takes today’s date from your system clock, it is important to make sure that your system date is correctly set for this function to work properly.

Step 3 – Calculate
Press the button marked “Calculate” to carry out the calculation. The number of days difference will be displayed at the bottom of the form. Note that the calculation excludes the starting date itself (ie. day number 1 is the day after your starting date) but includes the ending date.

### To add or subtract a chosen number of days to or from any date (ie. the right hand form above):

Step 1 – Choose your starting date
Select the starting date of your choice using the drop-down arrows next to each selection box. When you open the Day Calculator, the date is automatically set to today’s date. As the calculator takes today’s date from your system clock, it is important to make sure that your system date is correctly set for this function to work properly.

Step 2 – Choose whether to add or subtract

Step 3 – Type in the number of days to add or subtract
This must be a whole number.

Step 4 – Calculate
Press the button marked “Calculate” to carry out the calculation. The new ending date will be displayed at the bottom of the form, including the day of the week. Note that the calculation excludes the starting date itself (ie. day number 1 is the day after your starting date) but includes the ending date.
