If you are using a DataTable to store your 5 existing columns, then you can just add a few extra columns to the DataTable.  These new columns will contain an "expression".   So, in your case, you'd add a new column for tot_day and set it's Expressio property to "[start date]-[end date]"

Take look at this article... it has some downloadable examples too.

Yeah, you can't call the new column by the name tt1 (in your example).   Call it something else... anything else.

Yeah, that'd do just fine...   the problem is that you can't create a new column using a name that already exists.  So, "total" would do just fine.
