I am new to Designing in outlook.   I have created two text box date controls in which the user enters the Start and End date for a holiday request from their manager.  I can calculate the difference between the dates but would like to exclude weekends, public (uk) holidays etc.  How can I do this.

For checking weekend day, you have to use the Weekday Function in vbscript.

Returns a Variant (Integer) containing a whole number representing the day of the week.

Syntax

Weekday(date, [firstdayofweek])

The Weekday function syntax has these named arguments:

Part      Description
date      Required. Variant, numeric expression, string expression, or any combination, that can represent a date. If date contains Null, Null is returned.
firstdayofweek      Optional. A constant that specifies the first day of the week. If not specified, vbSunday is assumed.
Settings

The firstdayofweek argument has these settings:

Constant      Value      Description
 
vbUseSystem      0      Use the NLS API setting.
vbSunday      1      Sunday (default)
vbMonday      2      Monday
vbTuesday      3      Tuesday
vbWednesday      4      Wednesday
vbThursday      5      Thursday
vbFriday      6      Friday
vbSaturday      7      Saturday
Return Values

The Weekday function can return any of these values:

Constant      Value      Description
 
vbSunday      1      Sunday
vbMonday      2      Monday
vbTuesday      3      Tuesday
vbWednesday      4      Wednesday
vbThursday      5      Thursday
vbFriday      6      Friday
vbSaturday      7      Saturday

For the public holiday part, you have to create a table in a database to store holidays in UK. Then in your form, you have to use vbscript to open the database, open the table and check whether the From and To date has holidays between them.
