I changed it as follows but it still puts 730 days.
7/17/1900 to 7/17/2002 is a bit more days than that.
put "7/17/1900" into DateA
convert DateA from short 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
