    adpUserBirth is an AnotherDatePicker:
    Sub adpUserBirth_DateChanged (NewDate As Long)
    DateTime.DateFormat = "MM/dd/yyyy" ' just to be sure
        Dim PerDiff As Period
        PerDiff = DateUtils.PeriodBetween(NewDate, 
    Log("New date: " & DateTime.Date(NewDate))
    Log("Today   : " & DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now))
    Log("Days diff.: " & PerDiff.Days)
    End Sub
    New date: 10/11/1960
    Today : 04/18/2018
    Days diff.: 7

    So, I am 7 days old :p

    Where is my error?

    Found right now this:

    and it seems to work.

    But then I don't know the differences between the two functions.

    [So I am 21,008 days old :(]

    The first code should be like this:
    DateTime.DateFormat = "MM/dd/yyyy" 
    Dim PerDiff As Period
        PerDiff = DateUtils.PeriodBetween( 
    DateTime.Dateparse("10/11/1960"), DateTime.Now)
    $"${PerDiff.Years} years ${PerDiff.Months} months ${PerDiff.Days} days"$Colors.Blue )  '57 years 6 months 7 days
