# Length of Service

1. ## Length of Service

I would like to create a formula that would calculate the length of a
person's employment, i.e. hired 8/14/94 till today, for example. Any Ideas
will be greatfully accepted.

2. Try this

=DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"Y") & " Years, " & DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"YM") & " Months, " & DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"MD") & " Days"

6. This gets you the year if that helps

=IF(MONTH(TODAY())>MONTH(A1),YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR(A1),IF(AND(MONTH(TODAY())=MONTH(A1),DAY(TODAY())>=DAY(A1)),A1YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR(A1),(YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR(A1))-1))

7. ## Re: Length of Service

=datedif() is documented in xl2k's help (the only version of excel where it IS
documented, actually). But all versions of excel have that function.

Chip Pearson has some very nice notes at:
