Add NetDateDiff function to Report Designer and Generic Inquiry

It would be useful to add a new function to Report Designer and Generic Inquiry that will calculate the difference between 2 days excluding weekends and bank holidays.

For example, date 1 is 02/07/2018 and date 2 is 17/07/2018.
If a datediff function is used, then the result will be 16.
04/07/2018 is public holiday.
06/07/2018, 07/07/2018, 13/07/2018, 14/07/2018 are weekends.
If public holidays and weekends are excluded, the result will be 11 (16-5).

The list of public holidays can be used from Work Calendars screen.

    Thank you for your idea.

    Unfortunately, such calculations in Generic Inquiry are performed on the SQL server for performance sake, and it is not possible to perform it there because SQL server has no access to the public calendar.
