    The following formula in a custom text field will give the the number of calendar days from the current date to the project finish and it displays the value on the Project Summary Task. Note, set "calculation for task and group summary rows" to "Use formula".

    Text1 = IIf([ID]=0,DateDiff("d",[Current Date],[Project Finish]) & " days left","")

    Hope this helps.
