Dear all

Unfortunately I managed to answer in Danish on this request to the list 
and not internally.

When you install Manager the sample file actually contains an example on 
the date / age calculation requested by Bernard Branger.

We are currently building a wiki, where examples for solutions on this 
could be added.

Please note, that anyone who wish to add or exemplify are welcome to do 
so and can be added to the usergroup with rights to add to the wiki 
under construction at http://www.epidata.info/dokuwiki
