I didn't see an attachment.  Would this work for you:

today      Date Aquired      Days      Months      rounded
3/21/2012      2/21/2010      759.00      25.3      25
=today()      enter date      =+E4-F4      =+G4/30      =ROUND(D2,0)

1st line is header
2nd line is data
3rd line is the formula I used


To put today's date in excel is =today()
I used /30 to calculate months (do you need to know actual months?)

If you need exact months, attach your spreadsheet.

Regards!

Another option:
=DATEDIF(A3,TODAY(),"m")
