#### Calculate number of months

```Hello,

I have a field where I am trying to implement a calculation. I want it to
take the date in a cell and subtract it from today's date to show me the
total number of months between those two dates.  So right now, it looks like
=(TODAY())-D3 and it returns 167 - the total number of days.  How do I make
it show me months?

```

```=((YEAR(TODAY())*12)+MONTH(TODAY()))-((YEAR(D3)*12)+MONTH(D3))

Then Format->Cells->Number->Custom = 0 "months"

....should work for just about anything.

```Does it cross over Year-to-year?
What about something like 11/1/2008 to 2/28/2009?

If so, you may want to have your formula be:

=3DMonth(Today())-Month(D3) + 12 * Year(Today())-Year(D3)

```Try using the undocumented DATEDIF function...

=DATEDIF(D3,TODAY(),"m")

where the first argument's date must be an earlier (or equal) date than the
second argument's date.

```Hi,

Since you are working with dates you can use

=DATEDIF(D3,NOW(),"m")

HELP
I just wrote a check to the IRS, and in the Expense Catagory I indicated "Taxes : Federal Income Tax".

Get Start date of Week number and Year

Is there another way to do this as an expression in a query? I’m not familiar with creating my own functions. Thanks. That would depend on how you define the start of the week...

Caption Numbering connected with various heading styles
I am working on a document with many (100+) figures with captions that are located in various chapters, sections and subsections. I don't have a problem numbering the caption automatically with the appropriate heading level but when I adjust the caption heading level in the caption dialog box (e.g. from H3 to H4) all of my previously created H3 headings are changed to H4 level headings.

Calculation Error
I'm using Access 2002 and the file format for the DB is 2000. I have a calculation that works fine for me but when another user logs on and runs the same report she receives an #Error instead of the number.

If so, how do I fix this since she doesn't have 11.0 in her list. If it's not this what other possibilities could there be? Sorry, I made a typo. It's 2003, not 2002.
