# Calculating years,months,days remaining between two dates

#1

Hi guys,

First, credits to @Jeremy_Oglesby for this awesome workaround. Since I cannot message him directly here, I am hoping that he catches this! Thank you so much for this!!! My coding skills are not good and I have been trying to figure this on my own.

This was his workaround:

IF(
{Months Remaining}>0,
IF(
{Years Remaining}>0,
{Years Remaining}) &
IF(
{Years Remaining}>1, "yrs ",
IF(
{Years Remaining}=1, “yr "
)
) &
({Months Remaining}-{Years Remaining}*12) &
IF(
OR(
({Months Remaining}-{Years Remaining}*12)>1,
({Months Remaining}-{Years Remaining}*12)=0
),
“mos “,
IF(
({Months Remaining}-{Years Remaining}*12)=1,
“mo "
)
),
{Days Remaining} &
IF(
{Days Remaining}>1,” days”,
IF(
{Days Remaining}=1,” day”
)
)
)

I noticed that this only works for combinations of years and months so lets say just for the sake of this example that the remaining duration would be 1 year &; 6 months ; 28 days. Then it will not display the 28 days when using this formula. It wont display 28 days until it goes to a full month which should be then 1 year & 7 months.

Can you give a modified version of this code to include the remaining 28 days?

Anyone’s time would be appreciated! I just cant seem to work on the logic of the code.

Thanks again!
