How do I go about calculating the number of days between two dates? Is there a simple way to do it?

Depends on what answer you want
how many days between monday and friday - 5?
how many days between 15th and 19th - 4?
actual days in-between 15th and 19th = 3
You can convert the dates to milliseconds, then subtract dt1 from dt2, then
convert the result back to days.
Here's a way where you can easily change the code, depending on the output
you want.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
