Convertir la date de naissance en âge avec des formules

Méthode A: Convertir la date de naissance en âge avec soustraction

Normalement, nous déterminons l'âge de quelqu'un avec la date du jour en soustrayant la date de naissance donnée. C'est comme ça dans Excel.

Étape 1: Entrez la date actuelle dans une cellule vide, telle que 2016 / 4 / 7 dans la cellule B2.

Étape 2: Dans une autre cellule vide (indique la cellule C2), entrez la formule = INT ((B2-A2) / 365)et appuyez sur Entrer clé.

Méthode B: Convertir la date de naissance en fonction de l'âge avec la fonction DATEDIF

Certains voudraient appliquer la fonction DATEDIF pour calculer l'âge. Entrez la formule = DATEDIF (A2, MAINTENANT (), "y") dans une cellule vide, il calcule l'âge immédiatement après avoir appuyé sur la Entrer clé.

Méthode C: Convertir la date de naissance en fonction de l'âge avec la fonction ROUNDDOWN

Une autre fonction pour convertir la date de naissance en âge est = ROUNDDOWN (YEARFRAC (A2, AUJOURD'HUI (), 1), 0), qui va déterminer un âge standard, comme 27.

Méthode D: Convertir la date de naissance à l'âge exact avec la fonction DATEDIF

Parfois, l'âge exact est requis, et vous voudrez peut-être savoir combien d'années, de mois et de jours de la date de naissance à la date actuelle. La formule suivante peut vous aider à comprendre:

= DATEDIF (A2, AUJOURD'HUI (), "Y") & "Années", & DATEDIF (A2, AUJOURD'HUI (), "YM") & "Mois", & DATEDIF (A2, AUJOURD'HUI (), "MD") & " Journées"

Voir la capture d'écran ci-dessus, cette formule vous montrera le résultat précis, tels que 23 Ans, 8 Mois et 14 Days.

La formule est trop compliquée à retenir? le Texte automatique caractéristique de Kutools for Excel peut enregistrer la formule comme une entrée de texte automatique pour la réutilisation avec seulement un clic dans le futur!

    I have used the following to calculate the age of children in my class.
    =DATEDIF(B4,TODAY(),"Y")&"."&DATEDIF(B4,TODAY(),"YM")

    with B4 being their date of birth. It produces the correct answer (eg) 9.11

    They take tests 3 months later so I need in another cell to calculate '+3' months. But each time I do this I get 9.14 when I need it to say 10.2

    Can anyone help.
    Thanks

      YOU ARE AMAZING!!! It worked fantastically. I can now convert all the data for tests from the children in my class using this and I don;t have to work out their age each time. This makes my job much quicker and easier.

      Unclear my post went through or not, in response to Catherine's query.

      Repeat my formula which finds the difference between cell B4 contents and a date TODAY() advanced by 3 months:

      =DATEDIF(B4,DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY())+3,DAY(TODAY())),"Y")&"."&DATEDIF(B4,DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY())+3,DAY(TODAY())),"YM")

      The DATEDIF formula used to give the Years and Months in a YY.MM format is understandable. However, each of the 2 components of this formula is a separate number, integer. So, adding 3 to the MM part will only give 14 if it is 11 before the addition. The formula does not know you are looking to set it up as a MONTH.

      So, if you get the DATEDIF between B4, and a date which is a valid date but 3 months after TODAY(), try the following formula, works for me and gave 10.2:

      =DATEDIF(B4,DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY())+3,DAY(TODAY())),"Y")&"."&DATEDIF(B4,DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY())+3,DAY(TODAY())),"YM")

      Please confirm it worked for you.

    One should be careful using Method C, with the YEARFRAC() function, because of rounding error in computations involving leap years. You will calculate the incorrect age for people born in a leap year.

    Example:
    John Smith was born on 6/5/1932. 1932 is a leap year. Compute John Smith's age on 6/5/2002. We would say John Smith is 70 years old on his 70th birthday, 6/5/2002. However, because YEARFRAC(DATE(1932,6,5),DATE(2002,6,5), 1) computes to 69.99795627, adding ROUNDDOWN computes to 69. In fact, John is 70. I'm not sure if this is the best solution, but I've added a precise day to the computation, which I assume shouldn't affect other calculations because it is shorter than the formula assumes a day to be.

    (1/365.2422) is a precise day when accounting for leap years

    My adjusted YEARFRAC is:

    YEARFRAC(DATE(1932,6,5),DATE(2002,6,5), 1)+(1/365.2422) which computes to 70.00069418 and when combined with ROUNDDOWN, gives 70.

    Putting it all together according to the references in the article:
    =ROUNDDOWN(YEARFRAC(A2, TODAY(), 1)+(1/365.2422), 0)

    Responding to Beloved 2016-03-04:2016-03-04 in my yahoo mail box.Somehow, I thought they were not directed at me as I don't seem to have given details with commas, spaces, etc. I had only suggested the use of YEARFRAC() instead of DATEDIF function which i wasn't getting on my Excel. A clarification is welcome.

    Your teachings COULD be helpful but they are DEFINITELY NOT! Not because they are wrong per se but simply because 1. why do you use comma's (,) when Excel only accepts semi-colons (;) really beats me? 2. why do you put spaces in your examples when Excel NEVER accepts spaces?? Your work could be helpful but it confuses people instead. So, a perfectly good answer fails to produce the desired result practically on Excel because of YOUR carelessness. You spoil your own good work!...

      Datedif is better, but was only introduced on more recent versions of Excel. I believe you can use it as far back as 2003, but it won't give you any autosum guidance (You can still use it though!)

    In my Excel, I could not get the DATEDIF() function for whatever reason. Yet, I got a YEARFRAC() function which seems to do the same. Hope it is reliable.

      Thom · 4 years ago
      I have a feeling date functions may do this in later versions of Excel i.e. =month() etc. If not, you'll need to create a table with the number in the first column i.e. 1-12 and months in the 2nd column Jan-Dec) then use vlookups so that the function can convert the numbers into the correct text. A lot of fun to be had there as I once wrote a sheet that did this very thing, there was further issues involved in using the correct affix i.e. nd rd st or th. Again, lookup tables did that and I was able to shorten the funtions calculations by using if statements instead but that was very fiddly and half the time I found myself trying to use PHP which would do the job in no time! Have a look around online as someone's likely done some VBA that'll do the trick or KUTools probably have something.

    Hello
    Retirement age is 60 years and last date of each month and the formula works, but in our case if an employee's date of birth falls on 1st of any month then he/she will retire on the previous months last date. (eg. employee 1 DOB is 03/01/1960 then output needed is 28-02-2020 and employee 2 DOB is 03/02/1960 then 31-03-2020)

      Can you provide cell references and what data is entered in them along with your formula and that cell reference?

      First thought is you should format your result as a number instead of Date. That might be your issue.

    Another question in regards to age. How can I get the age in cell B2 [age?] when I have in Cell A2 [26/06/1966] and in Cell B1 [2013] just the year. Thanks.
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      Steve Konz · 4 years ago
      Are you just trying to get the age they will be in the year of B1? If so, then just do B2 =(B1-(YEAR(A2)))

      If that's not what you are looking for, can you explain what it is you need in more detail?
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      Thom h · 4 years ago
      Swap the reference to cell b1 with =date then you build the date with three values: year, month and day. You reference b1 add the year then you'll just have to put 01 as the year and month. Or you could steal the dates from cell b2 using =month and =day

    C2 = Current Date - could use TODAY()
    C3 = DOB

    Steve Konz · 4 years ago
    Not sure if this was covered, but a lot of people right these and don't consider leap years when looking at the difference in days. Here is one I wrote that considers leap year rules (even for the 100 & 400 year rules)....


    =IF((DATEDIF((DATE((YEAR(A2)+(DATEDIF(A2,A1,"y"))),MONTH(A2),DAY(A2))),A1,"d"))=365,(DATEDIF(A2,A1,"y"))+((DATEDIF((DATE((YEAR(A2)+(DATEDIF(A2,A1,"y"))),(MONTH(A2)),(DAY(A2)))),A1,"d")-1)/365),(DATEDIF(A2,A1,"y"))+((DATEDIF((DATE((YEAR(A2)+(DATEDIF(A2,A1,"y"))),(MONTH(A2)),(DAY(A2)))),A1,"d"))/365))


    where A2 is the date of birth, and A1 is the current date (which could be replaced with TODAY() also.

    Please let me know if there are any flaws in this or simpliar ways to calculate it.

      Excellent function, Steve. I believe datedif also does consider leap years :) yours looks very similar to something I wrote a couple of years ago add the client wanted to account for leap years and didn't trust datedif
      • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
        Steve Konz · 4 years ago
        If I recall correctly, but datedif wasn't the issue regarding leap years. Once you get the number of days difference and you need to identify a specific date at which they will turn an age is when you need to factor in leap days. The second formula I wrote below does account for those days. If you don't consider that in the formula when you forecast you will be off by a few days.

    Method D is exactly what I've been looking for, minus the day portion (easily removed). I've created an inventory of PCs for my company, and am using this to calculate hardware age based on purchase date. My question is this - is there a way to take this formula and make it so that I can essentially click a button to have it applied to a cell, and then just be able to then select the cell I want it to do the calculation on? Otherwise, I'm looking at having to copy/paste the formula to several hundred cells, and then go and manually change the target cell in each one.

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    I have added the formula for age that works well. I was able to continue the formula down the entire column which is what I needed. The issue is that a computed "age" appears in each cell despite the fact that I have not filled in a birthdate. ie: everything below the correct calculations in the column reads 115 years as a default. Is there a way to make the age cell blank until a value is placed in the birthdate cell so as not to see ongoing "115's?" Thanks in advance~

      Hi Kelsey,

      Option B (DATEDIF()) only gives you the years as a number value - did you perhaps mean option D? I've added an IF statement to Option B, so that it only shows the months and yeards if the person is 2 or under:
      =IF(DATEDIF(A2,NOW(),"y")

    Hello, I have a column in my spreadsheet for birth date, that is formatted as DD-Mon-YY (ie 11-Feb-03 for my son that was born on February 11, 2003). I used the =DATEDIF function referenced above and it is returning 115 Years, 2 Months, 11 Days. What is wrong and how do I correct it? Thanks for your help.
    =DATEDIF(E13,TODAY(),"Y") & " Years, " & DATEDIF(E13,TODAY(),"YM") & " Months, " & DATEDIF(E13,TODAY(),"MD") & " Days"
    Note: When I type =today() in a cell it is correctly listing 11-Mar-15 as today's date.
    Also note: The regional settings in my control panel list short date as dd-MMM-yy, so I don't think this would be the problem.

      You're getting that because the cell you're referencing is blank - is you r son's DOB in Cell E13? Because that's the Cell it's calculating from.

      Possible fixes:
      - Your function contains errors, please see the corrected one below:
      =DATEDIF(E13,TODAY(),"Y") & " Years, " & DATEDIF(E13,TODAY(),"YM") & " Months, " & DATEDIF(E13,TODAY(),"MD") & " Days"

      - You need to use the format option to format it correctly as a date. i.e. to make it read in that format you'll need to go to the 'Custom' option under format and enter:[$-809]dd-mmm-yy;@ Under 'Type'

      - If you're just typing it in like that, it probably won't read it as a date, you need to enter it as 11/02/2003

      This will give you "12 Years, 1 Months, 1 Days"

      Thanks,

      Thom

        Oops. LOL I had drafted this long note to you telling you it was still not working, when I noticed you were right...cell E13 was empty. My son's DOB is in cell E15. Oops. LOL Thanks for your kind help. It's working now. :) Have a great day!!

          Krista Check your E13 Column it must be blank, thats why you get 115 Years, change e13 to correct column number

      Hi Tanja,

      I'm assuming that would be the 25th October 2002? Is the FX part of the box? If so, I'd start with =right(A1,8) which would give you the last eight digits from cell A1, so if Cell A1 contained "fx 25102002" it would simply return "25102002". Now to convert that 8 digit string into a palatable date, I'd use the =date() function. I've done one for you, you just need to switch the A1 with the cell that contains your function =DATE(RIGHT(A1,4),RIGHT(LEFT(A1,4),2),LEFT(A1,2))
      Thanks, Thom

    hi what would the formula be to work out a child's date of birth in exact months (so 24/02/13 = 24mths?)

    I am an early years teacher and we work in months not years and months.

    Can you help?

    Kimberley

      Hi Kimberley,
      Datedif would do that for you, Just use =DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"m") Assuming the DOB is in Cell A1.
      Thanks,
      Thom

    Is there any way to convert age into date of birth. I have a sheet with name and age of customers as if age in years only. Is there any way to have DOB as result

      Hi Manoj,
      You wouldn't really be able to get the exact date of birth, unless you knew how old they were exactly i.e. 20 years, 50 days. You could calculate it to year by doing something like =YEAR(TODAY())-A1 assuming their current age was in Cell A1.
      Thanks,
      Thom
