Uses Of A Day Duration Calculator

Entering the date that you want to use as starting point for the calculation is the first step for using this day duration calculator. You can start on pretty much any date you like but the holiday support will be reduced for back in time. You can also type the dates in boxes, use the calendar popup window or use the dropdown menus that open if you click in the boxes.
When it comes to adding or subtracting days, what you should do is go into the Add/Subtract dropdown menu, choose to subtract or add days or from the start date and then, enter the number of days in the days field. In order to execute multiple additions or subtractions by using the same start date, you may enter a number of digits in the field and use comma or space to separate them.
It is possible as well for you to subtract or add the same number of days multiple times. To specify what days must be included in the calculation, you should check the dropdown menus entitled days in results. Say that exclude is what selected from the first menu, the day duration calculator is going to include all days except for days that are specified in second menu. If include only is what selected, it’s going to include the days that are specified in second menu.
