Countdown To A Countup

Good Day All!

I have been cruising the forum looking for some information about turning Kirupa’s countdown timer into a countUP timer. I have been struggling myself with it for days now, and I have given up hope.

Basically I am attempting to take Kirupa’s countdown timer and make it into a countUP timer so that I can input a date and display the length of time FROM that given date.

At first glance it seems really easy, BUT I am not that programming savy…yet. So, if someone could be so kind as to work their flash genius and provided a CountUP timer for my download, I would humbly bow to their wisdom.

Thanks All!
Happy Holidays!
