I need to calculate how many days are left from today to a certain date in the future in Google Sheets.

How can I do that?

There are two possible options for you to consider.

Formula

  1. "28/06/2015"-TODAY())
  2. DATEDIF(TODAY(), "28/06/2015", "D")

Todays date is: 28/10/2014. The result will be an integer (243).

Note

Make sure to format the outcome as a number and not a date. If you choose the NOW() formula, you introduce a time component. This will break up the calculation and show decimals.

Found the answer, this formula will do it:

=round(abs("2014-01-08"-NOW()),0)

Where "2014-01-08" is the date in the future.

=DAYS("01/01/2050", TODAY())

=DAYS(A2, TODAY())
