Can someone please provide me with a formula that will calc the months between two dates. For example, for 06/01/2005 - 07/15/2005, the function should return approx. 1.5 as the number of months.

If you are looking for approximate:

=Round((b1-a1)/30,1)

It would be pretty complex, I think, as you would have to account for the number of days in each month between the two dates, including the partial days of the months at the range ends.
