# Calculating Age In VBA (Chip Pearson)

R

#### Rick S.

I am not understanding something of Chips function.
If I run a macro with "MsgBox Age(12 / 3 / 61, 1 / 31 / 8)" I get "0 years 0
months 0 days" returned? Obviously there is at least 46 years here. What do
I have formatted wrong?

'======author Chip pearson
Function Age(Date1 As Date, Date2 As Date) As String
Dim Y As Integer
Dim M As Integer
Dim D As Integer
Dim Temp1 As Date
Temp1 = DateSerial(Year(Date2), Month(Date1), Day(Date1))
Y = Year(Date2) - Year(Date1) + (Temp1 > Date2)
M = Month(Date2) - Month(Date1) - (12 * (Temp1 > Date2))
D = Day(Date2) - Day(Date1)
If D < 0 Then
M = M - 1
D = Day(DateSerial(Year(Date2), Month(Date2) + 1, 0)) + D + 1
End If
Age = Y & " years " & M & " months " & D & " days"
End Function

=Age(E1,TODAY())

Where E1 is the DOB

Yea, thats better.

Works fine with variables.

Dim x As Date
Dim y As Date
x = InputBox("Enter Date 1")
y = InputBox("Enter Date 2")
MsgBox Age(y, x)

I think it's brazillion. From the greeting card on which Cheney is
reporting to Bush that they have a commitment for 100 Brazilian troops
to help in Iraq, and Bush responds "That's terrific!" And you open the
card to Bush asking, "By the way, how many is 100 brazillion?"
