  Sample input:
years ( "12/18/1961" ; Get ( CurrentDate )) )
  Sample output:
44.6160164271047228

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Calculates the years between any two dates, like birthday and current date for getting the age of a person. But does it correctly, taking into consideration leap year, etc. Others I have seen have not been correct.
