In what way is it "not specific enough?" As I recall, our definition did 
not state the distinction between options 1 and 4 other than by example, 
which is also insufficient for implementation.

SC 34 is setting up an errata process to address that type of concern. I 
am assuming that if we can propose a solution to the problem and obtain 
agreement, even informal, that no one is going to deliberately adopt a 
different definition of YEARFRAC.

Hope you are having a great day!
