For helping you determine the precise number of months and days between two dates, we developed the months calculator, also known as the month counter. Put otherwise, this easy-to-use application will count the month between the date you specify and the end of the specified time frame.

Note: Partial months are displayed as additional days.

With the months counter, you can calculate the number of months between two dates. You can then get the exact and instant calculation for the number of months.

Tip: If your benefits are pro-rated based on the number of months of work, this might be valuable tool for you.

To get the desired result, provide the start and end dates, and then the calculator will give the number of months with the details.

Here's a step-by-step method for finding the number of months between two dates:

**Step 1: Identify the start and end dates**

Let's say you want to calculate the months between January 1, 2020, and July 15, 2022.

Example: Start date: January 1, 2020 End date: July 15, 2022

**Step 2: Calculate the total number of days between the start and end dates**

To do this, you can subtract the start date from the end date:

End date - Start date = July 15, 2022 - January 1, 2020

2022 - 2020 = 2 years

July (month 7) - January (Month 1) = 6 months in between

15-1 = 14 days

Therefore, 2 years, 6 months, and 14 days

You can use the days calculator to find the number of days between.

**Step 3: Convert the total number of days to months**

To convert the total number of days to months, you can divide the total number of days by 30 (assuming a 30-day month). This will give you an approximate number of months.

2 years, 6 months, and 14 days ≈ 2 years × 12 months/year = 24 months + 6 months = 30 months

**Step 4: Calculate the final number of months**

Using the above adjustments, we can calculate the final number of months.

Therefore, between January 1, 2020, and July 15, 2022, we have 2 years, 6 months, and 14 days, resulting in a total of 30 months and 14 days.

**What is the formula to find the number of months in Excel?**

To find the number of months between two dates in Excel, you can use the following formula:

**=DATEDIF(start_date, end_date, "M")**

Where:

- start_date is the starting date
- end_date is the ending date
- "M" stands for months

This formula will return the number of full months between the two dates. If you want to include the current month, you can use the following formula:

=MONTH(end_date) - MONTH(start_date) + 1

This formula will return the number of months, including the current month.
