What is the best way if the date is much earlier?

If I do the following, I get only 730 days:


on mouseUp
   put "7/17/1900" into DateA
   convert DateA from system long date to seconds
   put "7/17/2002" into DateB
   convert DateB from short date to seconds
   put DateA - DateB into diff
   divide diff by 86400 -- No of seconds in 1 day
   if char 1 of diff = "-" then delete char 1 of diff
   put diff
end mouseUp
