    Error in period calculation whenMarch 28th 2016 is included

    Asked by roosdaal on January 11, 2016 at 06:15 AM

    A very strange issue is happening on a form i created at www.roosdaal.be/openbaardomein (dutch language).

    This form had fields for a start- and end-date and the next field calculates the nummer of days between them. This works just fine as long as the end date is before March 28th.

    When the end date is or exceeds March 28th, this day is calculated as 0.96 instead of 1 day?

    Enclosed screenshot shows result when March 28th is ending date (i have another screenshot showing March 27th, but i can onlu enclose one attachment)
