    Question Need to Count how many months two different dates are apart

    Hi All,

    I would like to see the possibility of counting how many months (not exact calendar months) two different dates are apart.

    E.G. 05th Jan 2019 & 01st Feb 2019 should give me an answer of 1

    I have tried the trick with DATEDIF() function but it would give me only if the date differences exceed 30 days.

    Any help is appreciated
