CRV10 - I need a formula that will give me months of service for each employee (as opposed to years of service). For example, if someone's hire date is 3/31/2004 then months of service would be 60, or if hire date was 1/5/2009 then months of service would be 3.  Thanks!

Please define how you are counting months of service, because based on your example it is not clear.

Crystal has a DATEDIFF function you can use

DateDiff('m',{HireDateField},CurrentDate)

mlmcc,

Right, but check the examples provided.  DateDiff would return 60 for the former, and 2 for the latter.  The question
lists 60 (OK) and 3 (difference).

Regards,

Patrick

matthewspatrick - Sorry, you are correct, 3 should have been 2.
