Where are you generating this date difference? If in a query, you can do:

SELECT RecordID, RecordName, RecordStartDate, RecordEndDate, DateDiff("d", RecordStartDate, RecordEndDate) As Days FROM MyTable

If you want the number of days from the record date to today, you can do this:

SELECT RecordID, RecordName, RecordStartDate, RecordEndDate, DateDiff("d", RecordStartDate, Date()) As Days FROM MyTable

You can put similar code on a form event etc.

Did that help?
