   It sounds like you want to know the number of days from the date of the report back to the date booked. If that is true, then create your report, and add a text box to the report. Then in the text box type =DateDiff("d", [yourdatefield], Date).

   I think that should do it. My syntax may be wrong. Do a search in the help box for DateDiff.

   Also, you can add this column to the query behind the report.
