It's fine to use Mod (Numbers, 9) for this with the understanding that if the actual digital root = 9 the Mod() equation will return 0. Simply insert a condition checking for this which returns 9 if the result is 0.

Othwersie, those of us who are "nines" (myself included) come up as 0 which is not a nice thing to do to us... :)

Since this should result in a value from 1 to 9, subtract one (to get 0 to 8 with Mod) and then add one.

Mod ((Day ( _Date ) + Month ( _Date ) + Year ( _Date ) - 1) ; 9) + 1
