Difference in Dates as number of days

I have three fields...

1) date_due_in

2) date_actually_received

3) days_difference

I want to calculate the difference between field 1 and 2, and return a number (number of days) into field 3.

It's amazing how much time I waste when I don't know what I'm doing!

You're gonna kick yourself when you see this...

Make days_difference to be a calculation (number) with the following formula:

date_actually_received - date_due_in

(the date fields need to be defined as type DATE.

Yes, FileMaker supports basic maths on non-numeric data types, in this instance dates, but so intuitive.
