that routine is actually a procedure... the one i posted is a function that 
returns the sought values ;)

you have to feed this one with 5 variables... the one i posted you feed only 3 
variables and you get back a three field record... i've been working on also 
adding 3 more fields for hour, minutes and seconds ;)

plus, the name should be more in line with the actual process... 
CalendarDateDiff or CalendarDiff...

just my two cents, for what they're worth...
