Google docs: how to subtract dates?

If I have one date in one cell and a later date in a second cell what is the formula I need to count the number of days between these two dates (in a third cell)? I tried simply subtracting the two cells and that doesn’t seem to work (it gives me a number in the tens of thousands when the result should be 8 ).
