How to Properly Calculate Age from Date of Birth

S  M  L  XL  FS

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will teach THE CORRECT WAY to calculate someone's age. I've seen a ton of WRONG tutorials out there that just use DateDiff. No! That's not correct. DateDiff only looks at whole years. If the person's birthday hasn't passed for this year, they will show as older than they are.

Jimmy from Amherst NY (a Silver Member) asks: I saw a tip on YouTube a few days ago that showed how to calculate someone's age using DateDiff, however if I type in my birthday which is in December, and it’s currently November, the calculation is not right! I need an accurate formula for determining age. I run a nightclub and obviously we don't want to serve alcohol 20 year olds!

BONUS FOR CHANNEL MEMBERS:
Silver Members and up get access to an EXTENDED CUT of this video which covers additional examples. That video will show you an even better way to calculate age using an advanced formula. The method I show in the free video is 99.9% accurate. The formula in the Extended Cut is 100% accurate.
