Hi
very often You will find the statements:
old 78 year, 3 Monath, 2 weeks and 4 days or
old 8 years minus 2 weeks and 5 days
other combination may possible.
It would be very helpfull for my work to have an calulation of the birthday without using other Programs or websites. May your can intergrate such a calulation feature straight to the usefrom entring the death data.
The feature should consider the leap year incl. the settings for the century
I hope You can implement such a feature.

Thanks

Bodo

    I concur. A DOB from DOD and Length of Life facts would be handy to have internally, much like the current calendar function.

    Hello Stephan
    I can not agree with Your replay, because I see the use case a bit different. You mostly can open an second window and calculated a date or what ever. But this is not always a nice way. You may like to enter the date and start the calculation from the same place. The calculation often results in a date, what is may a bit different from other sources. I like to see this directly and also to store it in the database (e.g. as note).
    Of course, their are may be a lot of work arounds, but for use it will be for my point of view better to have it as part of the programm, part of the event "death"
    I think it is an improvement
    Best regards
