let date of joiningas 19-101983
date of retirement is 30-09-2008
then total qualifying service ? how it will be caculated through coding in visual basic


Use DateDiff function:

dim t as integer
t = DateDiff("d",cdate("19-10-1983"),cdate("30-09-2008"))

You will get difference in Days,
Replace d with yyyy for years
m for month..

OR divide t by 12 to get years..
