## Age calculated column

Hi,

I am trying to create a calculated column with age worked out used the 'Birthdate' column. I've looked and tried using some of the formulas from some existing posts, but none have worked.

The colum is currently formatted as text (written dd/mm/yyyy) which I assume might be part of the issue? However, when I try and select date as the format, I get the "We can't automatically convert the column to Date Type" message.

Any ideas how I can a) format that column as a date? and b) More importantly, calculate age?

Thanks in advance and apologies if there is a super simple solution - i'm a novice! 🙂

Thanks for replying! In the end, I managed to do it using:

Age (Today) = FLOOR(IF([Birthdate] < TODAY(), DATEDIFF([Birthdate], TODAY(), DAY) / 365.25, 0), 1)

Couldn't quite figure yours out (absolute novice, here!), but thanks anyway! 🙂

You may add a calculated column and refer to this post.

```Column =
IFERROR (
DATE ( RIGHT ( Table1[Birthdate], 4 ), MID ( Table1[Birthdate], 4, 2 ), LEFT ( Table1[Birthdate], 2 ) ),
BLANK ()
)
```
