Calculate difference between current date & prior

I am looking for a formula that would calculate the difference in dates but
display in weeks-can this even be done?

Col A
4/15/2010

Col B
Approx Age in Weeks
2

I am trying to calculate the current age in weeks but cannot come up with
the right formula. The closest I could get was using TODAY() but kept
getting the errors. I have the formatting for the results col. set as number
with 0 decimals.
Thank you in advance for any assistance!

Answer: Calculate difference between current date & prior

Calculating the Difference Between Two Dates in Weeks in Microsoft Excel
1. Subtract the prior date from the current date to get the difference in days:
Formula:
``` =TODAY()-A2  ```
2. Convert the difference in days to weeks by dividing by 7:
Formula:
``` =(TODAY()-A2)/7  ```
3. Enter the formula in the cell next to the prior date to calculate the approximate age in weeks.

Note: This formula only gives an approximate age in weeks, rounding down to the nearest whole week. For a more precise age in weeks, use a more complex formula that takes into account the number of days remaining after dividing by 7.

Calculate difference between current date & prior

=INT((TODAY()-A2)/7)

or

=ROUND((TODAY()-A2)/7)
