This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

This calculation is a poor approximation to actual age around a person's birthday. There are much better calculations involving tests for whether the birthday has occurred in the current year.

I agree. It's not too difficult to calculate the exact age:

Let (
today = Get (CurrentDate)
;
Year ( today ) - Year ( DOB ) -
( today < Date ( Month ( DOB ) ; Day ( DOB ) ; Year ( today ) ) )
)
