DaySpan
Function
Gives the fractional number of days between 2 dates DateUtils unit
 function DaySpan ( const ToDate, FromDate : TDateTime ) : Double;
Description
The DaySpan function subtracts the FromDate from the ToDate, returning the fractional days difference.
 
The Double return value contains the number of days as the integral part, and the part-day remainder as the fractional part.
 
For example, a difference of 2 days and 6 hours would give a value of 2.25
