I have two dates coming in from a database that I need to calcuate the total elapsed business hours from. The rules would be only 8-5 hours on Monday through Friday would be counted. So for example if I have a start time and date of 7/10/2003 at 2:49:15pm and a end time of 7/25/2003 at 4:16:57 pm (both of these are datetime values), I should get something like 89:37 as the result. I have tried using datediff and excluding the weekend days, which is closer, but does not exclude the non-working hours.

Thanks!
