    Hi all,

    I am using the below formula (that I found on this forum) to calculate the age based on a DOB. I now want to create a formula for the next column to have either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ if the age is above a certain value.

    If this is possible, is it then possible if I have two ages in separate columns to generate a ‘Yes’ if either of the age’s are above the specified Value?

    Formula for Age Calculation;
    =DATEDIF($C24,NOW(),"y") & "y,"&DATEDIF($C24,NOW(),"ym") & "m,"& DATEDIF($C24,NOW(),"md") & "d"

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Many thanks.

    try this

    =IF (Cell you do the calculation in > age you want to test , "Yes" , "No" )

    if you want to test two columns , then

    =IF ( OR(column1 > age, column2 > age ), "Yes", "No")

    can you load a dummy spreadsheet and we can check the above works OK
