    Date Calculation in Word

    Although there is a tutorial posted on how-to perform date calculations in Word, I cannot say I understand it enough to have it done. Maybe I am a little dense and would appreciate a little more help in this area. I am trying to put in a formula to calculate age. What do I do?

    For an example, I have this inserted as a fied - =DATEDIF("6/2/1952",TODAY(),"Y") in the formula field but it did not work. It says there is an syntax error. Can you kindly advise?

    Also I would like to have this field updated automatically each time the document is opened.

    Much appreciated.

    If you are not changing the date of birth and just want that information included in the field then you should start with Macropod's nested field under the heading... "Interactively Calculate A Person’s Age"

    Now change the line that says
    {ASK BirthDate "What is the Birthdate?"}
    {SET BirthDate #6/2/1952#}
