<P>I need to calculate age in years between two dates. Help says use datedif, but the function does not appear in excel!

<P><LI-USER uid="1378175"></LI-USER> Which version of Excel are you using, on which platform? It is available in most versions, but not well documented in some of them.</P>
<P>Let's say you have dates in A2 and B2. Try entering =DATEDIF(A2,B2,"y") in another cell.</P>Sun, 01 May 2022 14:31:19 GMThttps://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel/how-to-calculate-time-between-two-dates-what-replaces-datedif/m-p/3299783#M144698Hans Vogelaar2022-05-01T14:31:19ZRe: How to calculate time between two dates.

<P>In addition, there is no tooltip for DATEDIF(). You shall type it on your own, Excel shows nothing while you are entering function.</P>
<P>Alternatively you may use <A href="https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/yearfrac-function-3844141e-c76d-4143-82b6-208454ddc6a8" target="_blank">YEARFRAC function (microsoft.com)</A></P>Sun, 01 May 2022 15:23:44 GMThttps://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel/how-to-calculate-time-between-two-dates-what-replaces-datedif/m-p/3299796#M144701Sergei Baklan2022-05-01T15:23:44ZRe: How to calculate time between two dates.
