# Service Time - Years & Months Separated

## Service Time - Years & Months Separated

(OP)
I've been using this formula (by SQL for Enterprise) to get Years of Service as 1 column, like 2.3:

ROUND(CAST(DATEDIFF(MM,((case when PS_EMPLOYMENT.REHIRE_DT IS NOT NULL THEN PS_EMPLOYMENT.REHIRE_DT ELSE PS_EMPLOYMENT.HIRE_DT END)), GETDATE() ) AS DECIMAL(5,2))/ 12,2)

Now I have a request to split Years & Months into 2 columns.

Any tips from the experts?

ThanX !

### RE: Service Time - Years & Months Separated

Lets say the employee has worked for 30 months.

30 / 12 = 2.5 years or 2 years 6 months

If we ROUND((30/12),2) we will get 2.5
If we ROUND((30/12),0) we will get 2.0

(2.5 - 2.0) = .5

(.5 * 12) = 6 for the months

Try this formula:

((ROUND(
(DATEDIFF(MM,
(case when PS_EMPLOYMENT.REHIRE_DT IS NOT NULL
THEN PS_EMPLOYMENT.REHIRE_DT
ELSE PS_EMPLOYMENT.HIRE_DT
END),
GETDATE()
)
/ 12),
2)
-
ROUND(
(DATEDIFF(MM,
(case when PS_EMPLOYMENT.REHIRE_DT IS NOT NULL
THEN PS_EMPLOYMENT.REHIRE_DT
ELSE PS_EMPLOYMENT.HIRE_DT
END),
GETDATE()
)
/ 12),
0)
) * 12)

Just doing a quick test of your formula, I got zeros for all, but haven't been able to spend any time researching it yet.

ThanX for checking !
