Does anyone know how to calculate the number of months between two dates when the first and last months are not full months.

For example:

Start date 02/05/2010
End date 08/14/2011

Any help would be appreciated

Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney
