You can use the following basic formula to generate the number of days in a month in Google Sheets:

=DAY(EOMONTH(A2,0))

This particular formula calculates the number of days in the month for the date in cell **A2**.

**Note**: The **EOMONTH** function returns the date representing the last day of the month and the **DAY** function returns the value for the day of the month.

The following example shows how to use this formula in practice.

**Example: Generate Number of Days in a Month in Google Sheets**

Suppose we have the following dataset in Google Sheets:

Now suppose that we would like to create a new column that contains the number of days in the month for each value in the Date column.

To do so, we can type the following formula into cell **C2**:

=DAY(EOMONTH(A2,0))

We can then drag and fill this formula down to each remaining cell in column C:

Column C now displays the number of days in the month for each value in the Date column.

For example:

- There are
**31**days in the month that 1/14/2022 occurs on (January) - There are
**28**days in the month that 2/13/2022 occurs on (February) - There are
**31**days in the month that 3/15/2022 occurs on (March)

And so on.
