Hey All,

I hope everyone is keeping well given the current pandemic.

I have recently started to use Airtable Sync and since then, noticed a couple of my formulas are now showing up with #ERROR (see pics attached).

My database is a paid plan, but is syncing to a free database. The DOB is being synced to the new page, but the age is not.

I would love some help on how to get the age to show again! Thank you so so much!

@Abby_Malesytcki has noted the same issue, and I just checked and am seeing similar errors for DATETIME_DIFF() functions.

@Jason, @Kasra
Your DATETIME_DIFF() function is broken :confused:

Hey @Jacqui_Birchall and @Jeremy_Oglesby,

Thanks for letting us know! We were just finding this out as well. Would you like me to create a support ticket about this for you?

:man_shrugging:

…not really; just kinda would like to see it fixed. If it will help your workflow, then go for it.

No problem, I’ll update here once we’ve confirmed a fix.

It fails for me when I use Today() as the first parameter, but not if I use that as the second parameter. As a temporary workaround, switch the location of Today() and Birthday in both phrases in the formula, then put a minus sign in front at the very beginning. Here’s what the successful formula will look like:
-DATETIME_DIFF(Birthday, TODAY(), ‘years’) & ‘years, ’ & MOD(DATETIME_DIFF(Birthday, TODAY(), ‘months’),12) & ’ months’
