Ok, an explanation

First off I create a field named IntervalFormatted

This is calculated by taking Date To, formatted as YYYYMMDD, and subtracting Date From, with the same formatting. The result is formatted as '#00000' so we always have characters for YMMDD

For example

20180331 - 20180101 = 00230 (0 years, 02 months, 30 days)

20180312 - 20180115 = 00197

20190319 - 2018-01-20 = 10199

With this result, disregard the right 4 characters (i.e. extract the years) and multiply by 12 to get months

left(IntervalFormatted, len(IntervalFormatted) - 4)

Then take the months part and add these

left(right(IntervalFormatted, 4), 2)

 

If you still have issues understanding this I'd suggest playing with the code in a demo app. Try adding additional values in the inline table

Try like below.

 

SET MonthDiff = Num(((year($2) * 12) + month($2)) - (((year($1) * 12) + month($1))) + 1);
