Ok, I just have to toss a wrench into the logic here.

Since we are talking about birthdays, what if the person is over 100 years old? This logic will fail.

It will fail in the same manner as any other attempt to measure beyond the scale implied. This has to be adjusted in the way that majority of the set is covered.
Cool

DOB


It is was obvious that one of the data elements is DOB but that didn't answer the question.

My apologies.

It's a DOB field being stored as a string. No application is pointing to this data.

Any help is much appreciated.

First, do not store dates as strings. Use the appropriate data type, and since you appear to be on SQL Server 2008 that would be DATE.

So you have an entire database with one table storing DOBs, why?
