I can't tell you how happy I am with Ablebits and the time it has saved me over the years. I started using Ablebits with my previous employer, probably 15 years ago and I constantly recommend your products to coworkers. You truly have top-notch customer service. Keep up the great work!

Love the products! They have saved me thousands of hours and they are responsible for me getting a promotion at my last job, which helped me land my current position as a manager.

### It's the best \$100 we've ever spent!

I talked my supervisor into getting Ultimate Suite. I often deal with huge tables and matching between versions has always been a nightmare. He asked me about the new tools and I said: "It's the best \$100 we've ever spent!" Indeed has saved me hours of work time. So, one big "Thanks!"

Mike Cavanagh

### Incredible product, even better tech support…AbleBits totally delivers!

I use AbleBits every day and keep finding new uses. Changing jobs, I get my new employer to cough up the very reasonable cost of this software. There're things I just can't complete any other way in large datasets. My coworkers think I'm a wizard. But I'm just a religious user of AbleBits.

Deborah Bryant

### Anyone who works with Excel is sure to find their work made easier by Ablebits

I've been using Ultimate Suite for almost a year and found it invaluable for my projects. I like the ability to merge tables based on 1 or more attributes, transpose columns and rows, and to transform data with Cell Cleaner utility. Plus, Ablebits' support is reliably fast and courteous.

Ever since I found your add-ons, it has been a life saver or should I say a major time saver. I have bought two packages for both work computers. Excel is at its best now because of you. Thank you!

### KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that our IT department doesn't understand

Our IT thought they know how the sales department should function and destroyed some data files. With AbleBits I was able to regenerate my database in a few clicks. This was AWESOME. KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that even our IT department doesn't understand.

Having AbleBits suite really helped me when I was in a crunch! It was intuitive and saved time on my job! Now I'm finding other capabilities I wasn't aware of, (first needed the easy merge capability). The other features are valuable time savers as well. Thanks for the product!

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it! There're only 2 ways to "exploit" Excel's potential: be a geek or embrace Ultimate Suite. Why waste time on routines that can happen with a click of a mouse? Make use of Excel's capabilities without wasting time and energy.

### What is Date & Time Formula Wizard and what do I need it for?

Date & Time Formula Wizard is a formula builder for Microsoft Excel. It creates formulas to calculate the difference between two dates, add or subtract years, months, weeks, days or even hours, minutes and seconds.

### Can't I do the same without any add-ins?

Sure, you can write all the formulas yourself using Excel alone. The formula builder uses only Excel math and no custom worksheet functions. It just simplifies and accelerates this process,dramatically saving your time.

To add or subtract, first you should select the cell where you want to put the result. Then you run the add-in, enter the date or select a date cell and enter the quantity or select cells with years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds. You will see the result of the calculation under Formula result. Click the Insert formula button. The formula will be inserted in the selected cell.

### What about the Excel date difference calculation?

If you need to calculate the difference between two dates, go to the Difference tab. There you will see three boxes to fill in: Date 1, Date 2 and Difference in. Unlike the Excel DATEDIFF function, our Date & Time Formula Wizard does not care about the order of the dates (start date and end date), it can output the result as a positive or negative number. After entering the dates, you select a format.

For instance, you can calculate the number of days between two dates; or show the difference in years, weeks and months; or weeks and days; etc. Once you click the Insert Formula button, the formula displayed in the Formula result section is inserted in the selected cell.

The detailed steps can be found here.

### How to calculate age in Excel with Date & Time Formula Wizard?

To create a formula to calculate age in Excel, switch to the Age tab. Select a cell with the birth date or enter it manually. Choose, whether you want to calculate age at today's date or a specific date. On the preview pane you will see the calculation result. Click Insert formula to get the Excel age formula inserted in your worksheet.

### In what formats can I have the date difference displayed?

The tool can calculate the difference between two dates in 15 formats:

1. Years
2. Months
3. Weeks
4. Days
5. Years + months
6. Years + weeks
7. Years + days
8. Months + weeks
9. Months + days
10. Weeks + days
11. Years + months + weeks
12. Years + months + days
13. Years + weeks + days
14. Months + weeks + days
15. Years + months + weeks + days

### Can I get the difference between two dates with text labels?

Sure. When calculating the date difference in two or more units, select the Add text labels option to make the result more understandable.

### I want to know only the number of weeks or days between two dates, is it possible?

Yes. You can select a single unit in the Difference in box. Or, you can remove years and months from your calculations by selecting either the Exclude years or Exclude months option.
