    Here's a beastmode to calculate the difference in months

     

    period_diff(date_format(`Enddate`, '%Y%m'),date_format(`Startdate`, '%Y%m'))

    Just plug in your own date values and you should be good to go.

     

    Let me know if that wasn't what you were looking for.

    DATEDIFF(CURRENT_DATE(), 'lastmoddate')

     

    Is that what you're looking for?

    Eg: How to calculate the number of months between two Dates.

    According to Excel formaule= Datdif(Startdate,Enddate+15,"M"), considering the values mentioned above in the question, expected answer is 14 months difference between date 01/01/2017 to todays date(2/26/2018).

    Im looking something similar in DOMO.

    What about Jan 31 - Mar 1?  One month or three?
