I need to modify this formula to return Months instead of the number of days.  
How can I do this?

=IF(GTExpireDate<FacilityExpirationDate,SUM(MID($D$15,SEARCH({"mon","day"},$D$15)-3,2)*{30,1}),"Expires After Facility Expiration")

ie it returns "60" for the number of days but I need it to return 2 months.

thank you

If you want to ignore the days and just take months try this version

=IF(GTExpireDate<FacilityExpirationDate,MID($D$15,SEARCH("mon",$D$15)-3,2)+0,"Expires After Facility Expiration")

Just divide by 30...

=IF(GTExpireDate<FacilityExpirationDate,SUM(MID($D$15,SEARCH({"mon","day"},$D$15)-3,2)*{30,1}/30),"Expires After Facility Expiration")

it might be better to look at the file.

What I need is the remainder in months on row 36.  

should be 2.  

thank you

Did you try the formula I gave? That should give the result 2 - it just extracts the month figure from D15. What result would you want if the value in D15 was 4 years 2 months 20 days?

tbarkdull's suggestion will give you a fraction, e.g. 2.67, mine will still give you 2 - what should it be, either of those or something else?
