Thank you for your response. I did search online and could not find any that showed time difference between. The examples I found were similar to the ones you pasted..which show count of days between 2 dates. That is not what I'm looking for. Instead, I'm looking for time difference excluding weekends. The closest match I found in online search was http://searchoracle.techtarget.com/expert/KnowledgebaseAnswer/0,289625,sid41_cid464601_tax294550,00.html
