Hi,

You can try:

``````Floor( (DateEnd-DateStart) / 365)
+
(
(
(DateEnd-DateStart) / 365) - Floor( (DateEnd-DateStart) / 365)
)
/ (365-12)
)``````

It's not a beautiful formula, but its exactly giving you the years and months.

Maybe like this

=Age(MakeDate(2019,08,05),MakeDate(2016,04,05))&','&Mod(Floor((MakeDate(2019,08,05) - MakeDate(2016,04,05))/30.4),12)

maybe like this:

``=date(interval(date#('05/08/2019','DD/MM/YYYY')- date#('05/04/2016','DD/MM/YYYY')),'YY-MM')``
