I am quite new to airtable, i am trying to create a formula that says if an end date exists THEN subtract today's date from the end date column ELSE calculate days remaining in the month.

I have checked through various date formulas on the community and i do not find a fomrula that directly calculates days remaining between today and month end if there is no value in the field 'end date'.

Can someone help please?

This will get you close but it is not a complete winner. Airtable does not recognize the EOMONTH function, so I can't figure out how to calculate to the end of the current month. It counts backward and then forwards depending on your {end date} and the current date.

IF({End Date}, DATETIME_DIFF({End Date}, TODAY(), 'days'), (DATETIME_FORMAT(DATEADD(TODAY(), 1, 'month'), 'YYYY-MM') & "-01") - TODAY())

Thank you @Jason_Hill 
the formula worked for calculating the remaining number of days from today to the end date but did not calculate the days remaining till the end of the month.

I have managed to find a way around getting my answer, although it took series of formulas to finally arrive there.
Thank you @Jason_Hill again for helping out
