Here's what I am using..  Truncate((CurrentDate - {ScheduleAllocations.Birthdate}) / 365.25)  I see that this works for some..  No errors, but the formula tree does not have a "check" on it??  Hope that makes sense.. thanks in advance..

Not sure what you mean by a CHECK on the formula tree.

You could also use
Truncate(DateDiff('y',CurrentDate,{ScheduleAllocations.Birthdate})

Could the lack of a "check" on the formula tree be because you've created the formula, but you haven't placed it on your report (or used it in another formula)?

In order for a field to have the green check mark, you have to use it somewhere on the report.  Just because you create it, doesn't mean the report will use it.
As far as the formula goes for age, the only accurate method I know of to get the age is found here on Ken Hamady's site: http://kenhamady.com/form06.shtml
The method you are using will be accurate most of the time but could be off as much as 1 day a year.

Did you try it with the formula from the link I posted:

WhileReadingRecords;
DateVar Birth:= {ScheduleAllocations.Birthdate};
DateVar Ann := CurrentDate;
if (Month(Ann) * 100) + Day (Ann) >=(Month(Birth) *100) + Day (Birth)  
then Year (Ann) - Year(Birth)  
else Year (Ann) - Year(Birth) -1
