Hi Mark;

Thanks for your reply, I am looking for the business hours/ or seconds 
between 2 time stamps I had a look at the cpan page before I emailed the 
list but unfortuantely I either did not understand it or missing 
something .. I also tried the between routine and can't figure it out,
I was hoping someone have actually used this module similar to the 
calculation I need .. which is basically how long in working hours did 
the ticket last from open to close ..

Regards;
Roy
