```First, it would be helpful to know what y, m and da are.

Secondly, do you mean the Mathematica Floor function? Then it should be
written with square brackets with the argument inside, Floor[argument]. So,
do you mean?:

2.44254*10^6 + 2200 Floor[1/9] + 7/4 Floor[1966 + 17 Floor[1/12]]
2.44598*10^6

You might, perhaps, go over some of the CORE LANGUAGE sections in Help:
Language Overview, Expressions, Syntax, Rules & Patterns, Functional
Programming.

In:= J = 367*y + Floor (7*(y + Floor ((m + 9)/12))/4) + Floor (275*m/9) +

da + 1721013.5

Out:= 2.44254*10^6 + (2200 Floor)/9 + 7/4 Floor (1966 + (17 Floor)/12)

How do you get Mathematica to evaluate "Floor" to give a number?
