what is the formula to change date of birth into age
I am compiling a membership list and need the age because we have an age
limit . Is there a formula to do this using date of birth? Can this be done without me having to work it out in my head each time! I am using MSO Excel 2003 Really appreciate any advice. Thanks.

what is the formula to change date of birth into age
Here is a 'simple' formula that will report a person's age effective the
current month, i.e. if their birthday is in current month, it will report that next age even if the day of the month hasn't arrived yet. This 'current month' condition applies to all formulas below. Assumes their DOB is in A1 =YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A1)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A1))) depending on how your age limit works, here's one that will show age only if they have passed a specific point (in this formula, they must be 21 or older for the age to show up, under 21 and "Underage" will show. This is all one long formula, although it may break here =IF(YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A1)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A1)))>20,YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A1)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A1))),"Underage") or if your limit is the other way around, must NOT have reached a certain age to join up (must be under 65 to join  of course this lets toddlers join) =IF(YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A6)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A6)))<65,YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A6)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A6))),"Too Old") to filter out the toddlers also, this one allows you to set older than AND younger than limits: =IF(YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A1)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A1)))>20,IF(YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A1)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A1)))<65,YEAR(NOW())YEAR(A1)((MONTH(NOW())<MONTH(A1))),"Too Old"),"Too Young") "Eddie" wrote: > I am compiling a membership list and need the age because we have an age > limit .

You could just subtract the dob from TODAY() to get the number of
elapsed days and divide this by 365.25 to get years, but if you want the answer to be a bit more elaborate then Chip Pearson shows how he http://www.cpearson.com/excel/datedif.htm Hope this helps.
