You can try this formula.

=F2-E2

 

Format the cell with the formula as General or as Number.

didn't work

A tad more information than "didn't work" might be helpful.

What do the cells involved contain? Real dates or text values that look like dates?

=DATEDIF(E2;F2;"d")-1

You can subtract one day to return the number of days between the two dates. Depending on your version of Excel you might have to replace "; " by ", ":

=DATEDIF(E2,F2,"d")-1
