Hi Everyone

I have a formula that calculated the no of days between 2 dates.

What I want to do is convert the no of days into complete months

Thanks
Neil

Use the DateDiff function:

datediff("m",<date1>,<date2>)

Hi Neil,

Just checkout the date/time routines at: www.mvps.org/access

BTW complete months from days will differ depending on a startdate. e.g. before and after the 28th of februari...
so Datediff("m",..) could do the trick for you.

the result of substracting to date variables is number, so what about dividing it by 30 !!!

Hi Nico;

I've been poking my head into EE now and then but I'm so busy at work with Access, Excel VBA, and Essbase projects that I hardly have any time to visit.

Looks like you've been spending quite a bit of time here though!  If you like, email me at outuvtime at yahoo dot com.

Mike.
