    DJO Contact Age Calculation Error

    After adding a birth date (4/28/1954) to an existing Outlook BCM Contact, DJO calculated the age as 59 years...should be 58 years. When I change the month between June and December, the age calculation is correct (58 years). For January through May, the age calculation is wrong (59 years).

    Michael,

    This is correct. The prompt is not age, but years. My niece will be 18 tomorrow, so her record says Dec 15th = 18 Years.

    For six months back, it gives the number of years from the past date. For six months ahead, it gives the number of years for the next date.

    This is what we designed for this value.

    Hm... I expect this number will be the today age, because for me it is logical this ;-) Also because the number is write near the birth date an not at the calendar day of this year occurrence of birthday... E.g. for Your nice the birthday is writen like 15 dec 1994 and not 15 dec 2012

    Huh - I can't say I've ever heard of an age calculation in any software being based in which birthday the current date is closest to.

    Is this some kind of standard, or did you folks just make this up yourselves?

    I don't think Palm Desktop nor Outlook do this, do they?

    Age calculation types...

    Just for further info, this appears to be called "Age Nearest" calculation, as opposed to "Current/Actual Age" calculation. It seems mostly used by schools to figure when kids should be in a given grade, and by insurance companies to figure how much your premiums should be. Other than that, I don't see much mention of it in my Google searches.

    I checked Outlook, and it doesn't support an Age field (you'd have to add a custom field), and Palm Desktop only shows ages on the Calendar on a person's birthday. So among those 3, only DejaOffice supports it (from what I can see).

    In any case, I'm still curious why DejaOffice uses this version of the age calculation.
