Today = 7, 6, 2009

GetAge ( date( 7;5;2008) ) = 1 years, 12 months, & 1 days

One year and 12 months? Huh?? Needs some work!

This is what I use for my Age function

Age (DOB )

Let (
[
NumberOfDays = Get ( CurrentDate ) - GetAsDate ( DOB )
]
;
Int ( NumberOfDays / 365.24 )
)

Does anyone check to see how many other functions already exist for exactly the same purpose?
