I dont have time to go into very deep but you can study this problem when a
leap year is involved:
IntAge = floor((intck('month',"03MAR2000"d,"03MAR2002"d)
- (day("03MAR2002"d) < day("03MAR2000"d))) / 12);
YrdifAge = floor(yrdif("03MAR2000"d,"03MAR2002"d,"ACT/ACT"));
put IntAge = YrdifAge = ;
Compromise is like telling a lie, it gets easier and easier. Each
comprimise you make, that becomes your standard.
Perfection doesnt exist, once you reach it, its not perfect anymore. It
means something else.

Can you show me an example for the situation you mentioned above?
I would be interested to know the other pitfalls of this function as well.
