    You can add or subtract number of days from a date to show the difference in a separate field. You can use the conditions wizard for this.

    The result shall be displayed as below :

    You may also change the rule to if the selected date is after/before the specified date as well. Hope this information helps. Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thanks.

    Its ok saying you can use the conditions wizard to acheive this but how do i get to the conditions wizard that you are displaying here in the first place. Is this not a calculation wizard?

    There's 2 different Calculation Wizards.

    There's a Form Calculation Widget and then there's the Conditional Calculation using Conditional Logic to update your Calculated Values even though they appear somewhat similar so they might be confusing if you're uncertain about it which is why I am showing you both below to explain it.

    What he's showing you is the "Conditional" Calculations Wizard.
