Might seem obvious but I can't find an answer in Excel Help. I am trying to
calculate age in years, months and days by subtracting cell containing date
of birth from cell containing today function. Using 2007.
Many thanks.

Hi,
I assume you have today() formula in D5 and entered the new date in E5

=DATEDIF(D5,E5,"y")&" years "&DATEDIF(D5,E5,"ym")&" months
"&DATEDIF(D5,E5,"md")&" days"
