Is there a formula that can work out a persons age from a date?

Eg.

Col A1 Col B2
28/12/1981 24
 

Excel Facts

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

R_Stephens,

Your formula returns an age of 31 with a DOB of 7/9/75 (i.e someone who would turn 31 tomorrow).

No doubt there's a much shorter solution, but I THINK the following works:
Code:
=IF(OR(AND(MONTH(TODAY())<MONTH(A1),DAY(TODAY())<DAY(A1)),AND(MONTH(TODAY())=MONTH(A1),DAY(TODAY())<=DAY(A1))),YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR(A1)-1,YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR(A1))
