Good day..

How do i computer date intervals.

For example, i want to get the year and month interval between between 05/08/2002 and todays date.. so i used datediff(dateinterval.year,d1,d2) and datediff(dateinterval.month,d1,d2).

The year interval returned is correct, however the month returned all the month, resulting to 30 months... im expecting a month interval of 6.

is the month or day interval of datediff counts from the start..? if so is there any functions that i could use to get the actual month and day intervals..?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thnx very much
