Calculating the Amount of Elapsed Days Between Two Date Strings

Code and Documents


The following two VIs return the amount of elapsed days between two date strings you specify.

Both VIs convert the date strings to timestamps. The VIs use those timestamps to calculate the amount of elapsed days between the two dates.

The Elapsed Days VI uses the Scan From String function to generate the elapsed time. The DateString-Days VI uses the Scan From String function and the Date/Time To Seconds function to return the amount of elapsed days.
