thanks for replay but actually I do this in simple way :

`Age = ROUNDDOWN(((1,0*(TODAY()-Partner[DateOfBirth]))/365);0)`

Hi @dawcza3,

According to your description above, you should be able to use the formula below to create a calculate column to calculate age in direct query mode.

```Age =
YEAR ( TODAY () ) - YEAR ( Table1[DateOfBirth] )
+ IF (
DATE ( 1900, MONTH ( TODAY () ), DAY ( TODAY () ) )
< DATE ( 1900, MONTH ( Table1[DateOfBirth] ), DAY ( Table1[DateOfBirth] ) ),
- 1,
0
)```

## Re: Calculate Age with Direct Query Support

Noob question, my apologies. I have a very similar need and don't understand where I would define "Age" so that it can be included in the visualization. Is this a new column, or a measure?

Secondly, could it be applied to a summarized result. Using this example, to find the age of the youngest person in a family?
