st: Days between

I have two date formats which I have imported from Excel.  The first
is a in dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm format (e.g. 22/04/2011 12:08).  The second
is dd/mm/yy (e.g. 22/08/2012). Both dates are currently stored as
float and formatted in %tc.

I would like to calculate the days between these two dates.  I was
able to when both dates were in dd/mm/yy.  However, with the inclusion
of hh:mm I am no longer able to.

How would I calculate the days between?

Thank-you and kind regards,
