I need a formula that will take the current year, subtract 6 years, and display the resulting year.

I also need one that will take a date displayed (mm/dd/yyyy format) in cell J2, subtract 6 years, and display the resulting year.

If you just want a year as a result (not a date) then try this for the current year

=YEAR(TODAY())-6

and for a date in J2 that would be

=YEAR(J2)-6

Greetings, this is my first post. I am looking for something similar to this question. I am building a data base for my church that will tell us how many days, weeks, months and years since an event; such as baptism, joining the church, time between a member helping with an event etc...so far I'm doing this

C1 = date of event
D1 = current date using the NOW function

For day calculation I simply use =D1-C1
for week =(d1-C1)/52
for Month =(D1-C1)/30
for year =(D1-C1)/365

Is there an easier & more accurate formula(s)?
