    I'm so sorry! Can't believe I missed that step. This should do it:

    • =ROUNDDOWN((TODAY()-[Hiring Date]@row)/365)+" Years " + ROUNDDOWN((TODAY() - [Hiring Date]@row) / 30 - (ROUNDDOWN(((TODAY() - [Hiring Date]@row) / 30) / 12) * 12)) + "Months"

    Hi,

    Assuming you have a [Hiring Date] column you could use a formula like:

    • =ROUND((TODAY()-[Hiring Date]@row)/365)+" Years " + ROUND((TODAY()-[Hiring Date]@row)/30) + "Months"

    This isn't exact as there are not 30 days in every month, but it gives you a close approximation. The formula to get the exact number of months would be slightly more complicated.

    Hope this helps!
