actually i ad a website in google analytics account so when i count my daily users day by day for 10 days like

1st march - 377

2nd march - 173

3 march - 357

4 march - 311

5 march - 239

6 march - 237

7 march - 204

8 march - 130

9 march - 397

10 march - 340

so total from 1st-10th march is 2765 when we count all above users

now if we select custom range from 1-10 march from google analytics date range selector the total users are approx 1850.

so why this difference occurs between users i am in loss of approx 1000 users i need the proper reporting.

Hi, because some of those users would have likely visited more than once, on different days, in which case when looking at the larger date range, they are not different users, they are each an individual user generating multiple visits over a number of different days.

If i were to visit your website 3 times on the same day, im not a different user each time.
I'm the same individual user generating multiple sessions
