Excel

I have to create a payroll document for class using Excel and I am quite confused.
Here is the parts that I am confused on.
I have to calculate the number of years the employees have been working for us, I believe the function I need to use is TODAY() but it is not working, how can I get that function to work?
I also need to figure out how to use the functions IF (when looking at 401K amounts compared to payroll and health care payments)
Also if I want to get the sum of a few cells I would use SUM or TOTAL ?
Thanks.
