# Duration Report End and Keep the value

Hi
I have a simple formula:
Today()-[B2C Start Date] calculating for a Duration Field.
However once the person discharges, I would like the duration report to stop counting and retain the value when the [B2C Discharge Date] is entered.
Is there a way to do this?
Thank you!

if(

isnull([discharge date]), Today()-[B2C Start Date],

[discharge date]-[B2C Start Date]

)

You'll have to capture the discharge date.

There are a bunch of ways to do this, but here is the shortest formula

Min(Today(),[B2C Discharge Date]) -[B2C Start Date]

It presumes though that you do not post date ahead your planned terminations.

Not sure if I can ask a question from here again? Going to keep in the same thread-as it is about the same formula(s)

I have the formula:
Sum([BTC Discharge Date]-[BTC Admission Date])

and now I need to know how many of those days fall in each month.

I also have a simple duration report that I can pull from

Min(Today(),[BTC Discharge Date]) -[BTC Admission Date]

What is the best way to calculate the days that occurred in a month?

Thanks in advance for the help.
