Hi, can anyone tell me why this formula isn't working? Its meant to find someone's age as of a certain date (N1) based on their date of birth (M4). All it's doing when I enter the formula is leaving the entire formula text in the cell....it's not even trying to calculate. HELP! Thanks!

=IF(ISBLANK(M4),"",INT((N1-M4)/365.25)

Are you using 2007 and do you have your settings to show the formula turned on or off?

In 2007, it is on the Formula tab and located under Auditing.

Hi,

I'm not an expert so I cannot help you with this formula, sorry.

I know this doesn't answer your problem, but...

I use this with Todays date in A1 and the date to be entered in A4.....

=IF(A4="","","You are " & TEXT(DATEDIF(A4, A1, "Y"), "0") & " years, " &TEXT(DATEDIF(A4, A1, "YM"), "0") & " months and " & TEXT(DATEDIF(A4, A1, "MD"), "0") & " days old.")

I hope that helps.

Good luck.

Make sure that the cell is formatted as General then re-enter the formula.
