  • Hi Vijay,

    I think, we need a simple custom workflow for calculating the age. The custom workflow takes CreatedOn as input and calculate the difference between Current Date and CreatedOn and use the value for updating in the numeric field.

    You can create a system workflow which should be triggered on create of the record and it should also be a child workflow. Workflow steps are as follows

    1) Call the custom workflow

    2) Timeout for one day

    3) Call the same workflow as the child workflow

    In this way, the workflow triggers daily and update the numeric field.

    Hope this helps.
