Simple but eefective calculation of years since a certain date

Sample Input:
Age ( Birthdaydate )

Birthdaydate with a value of 5-3-1969 in my case
Sample Output:
43


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

Just looks at the current day of the year, if its past the day of the year of the given date the years passed is the current year minus the given year else it's a year less

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

Sorry, but this fails when the start year is a leap year and the current year is not a leap year. Sometimes simple is not necessarily effective ;)

A totally accurate and yet very simple way is demonstrated in my YearsAsInteger function (http://www.briandunning.com/cf/79).

Hope this helps!
