convert both in dates into a time stamp using mktime()
subtract the two figures you get back
then divide by 86400 (60sec/min * 60min/hr * 24hr/day)

Hello all,

I would like to know if anyone could help me with the following issue:

I have 6 variables, two holds a day, others the month and the last ones the
year. They are entered through drop-down-menus where the user selects day,
month and year for each date.

I would like to know the difference in days between these two dates. Since
the dates are separated and each value day, month and year are stored on
separated variables I wonder who to proceed here. I need to know how many
days of separate each dates. 

Thank you in advance,
