## How can I calculate an age from a date of birth?

• Given a field containing dates of birth, calculate current age.

The query will be

```SELECT "DateNaissance",
CASE WHEN MONTH(CURRENT_DATE) < MONTH("DateNaissance") OR ( MONTH(CURRENT_DATE) = MONTH("DateNaissance") AND DAY(CURRENT_DATE) < DAY("DateNaissance") )
THEN CAST((YEAR(CURRENT_DATE) - YEAR("DateNaissance") -1) AS VARCHAR) || ' ans'
ELSE CAST((YEAR(CURRENT_DATE) - YEAR("DateNaissance") ) AS VARCHAR) || ' ans'END AS "Age"FROM "Table1"```

To calculate age to the nearest day:

The query looks like this

```SELECT "DateNaissance", "Nom", YEAR(NOW())-YEAR("DateNaissance")-
CASE WHEN (MONTH( NOW() ) < MONTH("DateNaissance") OR ( MONTH( NOW() ) = MONTH("DateNaissance") AND
DAY( NOW() ) < DAY ("DateNaissance"))) THEN 1 ELSE 0 END AS "ans",
MONTH(NOW())-MONTH("DateNaissance") +
CASE WHEN MONTH(now()) <= MONTH("DateNaissance") AND DAY(NOW()) < DAY("DateNaissance")
THEN 11 ELSE
CASE
WHEN MONTH(NOW()) < MONTH("DateNaissance") AND DAY(NOW()) >= DAY("DateNaissance")
THEN 12 ELSE
CASE WHEN MONTH(NOW()) > MONTH("DateNaissance") AND DAY(NOW()) < DAY("DateNaissance")
THEN -1 ELSE 0
END
END
END AS "mois",
DATEDIFF('DAY', CAST(YEAR(NOW()) || '-' || RIGHT( 0 || MONTH(NOW())  - casewhen DAY(NOW()) < DAY("DateNaissance")
THEN 1 ELSE 0
END, 2) || '-' || RIGHT( 0 || DAY("DateNaissance"), 2) AS DATE) , NOW() ) AS "jours" FROM "Table1"
```
