    Yes, you can perform calculation in the dates. I created a demo form that shows the start date, the end date, and the total number of days. Here are the steps that I did to make this demo form.

    1. I created 2 DateTime fields.

    2. I also created a normal text box field where the result of the calculation will show.

    3. After that, I used the condition "Update a Form Field Value".

    4. The condition looks like this:

    The condition (If End Date is Filled) is configured like this so that the (Total Days) field will not show any value  until the data is completed. Because, if you put a value on the Start date, it will immediately perform calculation even if there is no End date.

    The formula shows End date - Start date, because it will be a negative value if it is the other way around.

    Let us know if you need any help. Thank you.
