This question is not clear. There is no built-in COUNTDOWN function in Excel, but there is a way you can do so. There are many things you can count down, including the number of days until a specific date. If you want to count down to a specific date, so the following.
  1. In A1 enter your target date. Use 12/25/2010 for this example.
