# Excel: How to Calculate Age in dd/mm/yyyy

You can use the following formulas to calculate age based on a birth date in dd/mm/yyyy format in Excel:

Formula 1: Calculate Age in Years (e.g. 32 years)

```=DATEDIF(B2,NOW(),"y")
```

Formula 2: Calculate Age in Decimal Years (e.g. 32.597 years)

`=YEARFRAC(B2,NOW())`

Formula 3: Calculate Age in Years, Months, Days (e.g. 32 years, 7 months, 5 days)

`=DATEDIF(B2,TODAY(),"y")&" years, "&DATEDIF(B2,TODAY(),"ym")&" months, "&DATEDIF(B2,TODAY(),"md")&" days"`

Each formula assumes that the birth date is located in cell B2.
