Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
This function can be used for resource calculating. It calculates hours between two Timestamps and does a lot more. It will take your Work hours and only count the hours between those. Also your holidays can be excluded by a list of holidays. The list need to be Proper Dates e.g. "01.08.2008" and not "1.8.08". There is a CF for that.
Weekend are excluded also, this can be modified quite easily.
It outputs a Dezimal number, this also can be changed by a simple modification to the custom function.
Error checking is also implemented. So if an End Date is before a Start Date, this will be ignored.

|This fella doesn't seem to work, it always returns a "0", even the example. Perhaps it needs to be rewritten for the newer version of FileMaker.|
