    I use Excel to store the names of clients, including their ages. Can Excel automatically calculate and update the age of a person?

    System: Windows XP

    An office colleague suggested "=DAYS360(J145,NOW())/360". Although it works, Excel gives a pop-up window that says "formula results volatile".

    If you put their birthday in A1, then you can use something like this ...

    =DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"Y") & " Years, " & DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"YM") & " Months, " & DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"MD") & " Days"
