Hi Tom ! Tom i have birth date in A1 for ex. 27/12/1978 and in B1 i enter formula =int((today()-a1)/365.25 i dont get answer it displays #VALUE! but when i change the system date format to dd/mm/yyyy it gives perfect age. please Tom i dont want this way to get it done. i want to get age without changing system date format.
Based on your description, it looks like your 27/12/1978 is being stored as a string rather than as an excel date. This formula should handle either situation but if 27/12/1978 is stored as a string, the formula assumes the string in written in the dd/mm/yyyy format with no spaces. So if it was Dec 5, 1978, the formula would expect the cell to contain "05/12/1978" or if it was March 5, 1978 it would expect "05/03/1978"
