Age, Part 2

Checking the Accuracy of Original Age Calculations


 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, we will examine the Age calculations in my original Microsoft Access Age video and see just how accurate they are. I built a database to run through 10 million date calculation iterations, and it turns out the original formula is 99.91% accurate. I will, however, show you a more advanced formula that is always 100% accurate. 

Rabid Follower (a YouTube Subscriber) says: I think dividing by 365.2524 could lead to erroneous results pretty often, and it's not "1 in 5000" like you said... It’s more like 1 in 486 from my calculation.

Hi Richard, using your code for calculating age, is it possible to include months and days as well, and not just the year?

You can get the TOTAL months or days by using the same formula with m or d instead of yyyy. I'm guessing what you want isn't that simple though, you want to see the leftovers right?

I was able to get leftover months by doing the month calculation - (yearcalculation*12).

Leftover days on the other hand.... I'm lost, maybe Richard has an idea.

Calculating days is easy.  Just D1 - D2
Months a little more difficult because of February.  If you are not real concerned about that just multiply years from the age calc x 12.
