#### Calculating age in years and months from Date of Birth

```I think these formulas help me a lot, but I need the answer in years an
months, not decimals or days! Can you help?

To calculate the number of years from the date, enter the followin
formula in cell B1: =YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR(A1)

The result (rounded): 23 Years

For a decimal solution, use the following formula
=DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"m")/12

The result: 23.25 Years

To calculate the number of months from the date, enter the followin
formula in cell D1: =DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"m")

The result: 279 Month

In cells B1-B100, I have percentages ranging from 0%-100%. I want to break out the cells in A1-A100 in several groups, like follows: \$1-\$99, \$100-\$199, \$200-\$299, and so on up to \$1000.

Set a recurring task ie. a task to check a website each month
It would be advantageous to be able to set a recurring task ie. a daily, weekly, monthly or other multiple task. An example would be if you needed to go to an accounts website or prospects website once a month to look for leads. Or to check out a competitor for new things on their website. It could also apply to phoning or mailing etc. This would save constantly having to remember to create a followup or write up to dozens of followups at different dates. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most votes.

Looking up a date

Year-End Adjustments by going into database

I went into the database and I could not update COSTSOLD in ViewItemMovement. What do I do? ViewItemMovement isn't a table, it's a view - the underlying data resides in other tables.
