    Re: Formaula for Convert Duration to Numbers of Months

    But it's not same if you look for example:

    100 days:

    1.1.2011 - 10.04.2011 is 3 months and 10 days
    20.1. 2011 - 29.4.2011 is how much? (Please enter some value)
    1.2.2011 - 11.05.2011 is 3 months and 11 days

    What you expect as result in those cases?

    It's not problem but I'm asking you this because we need to know how to calculate it.

    So we need to know what's your expected result.

    here is simplier solution:

    30 days

    that can be:

    0 month 30 days (for example January, number of month days is 31)
    1 month 2 days (for example February, number of month days is 28).
    1 month 0 days (for example March, number of month days is 30)

    So, when you enter 30... What you expect to get as result?

    Re: Formaula for Convert Duration to Numbers of Months

    Assuming you arrive at the number of days by subtracting two dates
    Say in A2
    16/10/2009
    In B2
    13/06/2011
    Then
    =B2-A2 returns 605

    =DATEDIF(A2,B2,"m") ..... returns 19 (months)

    =DATEDIF(A2,DATE(YEAR(B2),MONTH(B2)-DATEDIF(A2,B2,"m"),DAY(B2)),"d") ....returns 28 (days)

    Concatenate these

    This returns:= "19 Months & 28 days."

    Hope this helps

    Re: Formaula for Convert Duration to Numbers of Months

    Thanks Mr. Marcol for your clarification,

    as u described that :

    Say in A2
    16/10/2009
    In B2
    13/06/2011
    Then
    =B2-A2 returns 605

    upto here all picture are clear but while using formula DATEIF i m little bit confuse.

    Which is that DATEIF is not any formula in excel & according to quoted some code by u tell me that how to apply this code in my work book through that i can execute that DATEIF formula & can get desired result.

    pls need clear reply,,,

    thanks
