Should be:

--//--
age := year_now - year_born;
if month_now < month_born then Dec(age);
else if (month_now = month_born) and (day_now < day_born) then Dec(age);
--//--

Feel free to ask more.

Regards, julio

Apart from the fact that that is not an age - unless you are used to tell your friends you are 7152 days old -, i cannot see any loop in my code...!?

Age is a stage of mind. No computer program can tell you
what is your real age :-)

Julio, your procedure is just perfect, please receive 100 pts.

kjteng, your comment is true, so maybe I should forget all about how old I am.

Best regards
