How to Calculate a Date a Specified Number of Days From Today

You may find yourself needing to find the date a certain number of days from today. You can calculate the future date using a few different methods.

The process is similar to calculating the number of days until your birthday, but instead of counting down, you’ll be counting up.

Method One: Calculate the Date Manually

The first method is to simply calculate the future date on a calendar manually. Start from today’s date, then move forward on the calendar one day at a time until you count out the number of days until the future date.

Be sure to jump to the next month when you reach the end of a month, and take note that months do not all have the same number of days. Learn more on our months to days converter.

This method is quick and easy if you want to find the date a few days from now, but it gets much more cumbersome and time-consuming the further out you go, for instance, if you want to find the date 120 days from today.

Method Two: Calculate Using Spreadsheet Software

You can also use spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets to calculate the date a specified number of days from now. The process is fairly straightforward.

Start by entering the date in any cell, let’s say cell A1 for example. Then, in another cell, use the following formula to find the date 60 days from now:

=A1 + 60

This will add 60 days to the date in cell A1. If you wish to find the date a different number of days in the future, simply change the number 60 to whichever number of days out you want to find the date for.

Similarly, if you entered the original date in a cell other than cell A1, simply replace A1 in the formula above with whichever cell you typed the date into.

Method Three: Calculate the Future Date Using an Online Calculator

We have several calculators available that allow you to input a start date and add or subtract any number of days, such as our time duration calculator or the calculator above. These tools automatically account for the variances in month lengths and leap years.

You can also use our business days calculator to find the date a number of of working days from now.
