Subject: Re: compute # of weeks & years from date variables
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Compute week1 = CTIME.DAYS(date2-date1)/7.
Compute week2 = CTIME.HOURS(date2-date1)*168.
Compute week3 = CTIME.MINUTES(date2-date1)*10080.
Compute Years = CTIME.DAYS(date2-date1)/365.25.
The question might be is there a "simple" function to do this?
Answer : No.
After reflection and before hitting send button :)
Maybe the question is years and weeks? Like an age in years and weeks ?
* the sequence returns two variables number of years and remainder
