Question

I am using the code below in a field of type formula but I'm getting an 'invalid formula' error.

Datediff(year,[@field:DOB],GetUTCDate())

Am I using the right way to get the current date?
I must be doing something wrong but I can't figure out what.
Your help is much appreciated.

Hello @qrmds,

Unfortunately, the GetUTCDate() function is not available in the Formula field.

You may find this information is this article https://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/data-types/formula-fields/

As a workaround, you may use the Application Task to calculate the DateDiff if this feature is available in your plan. 

The Task example:

You may learn more about the Tasks in this article https://howto.caspio.com/tasks/

If you need to recalculate the age every year, it is possible to run the Task on 01/01 to get the relevant age.

Hope this helps.
