comment How to use DateDiff() Function across day transition in ArcGIS Field Calculator?
Would you be able to use the edit button beneath your Question to revise it with these additional details, please? That way you get access to the Code formatting button, and your Question continues to standalone rather than needing a train of comments to also be read.

+1 @KevinRDyke I think it is fair to assume no license level restrictions unless they are specified in the Question. In this case the lack of an Advanced license has so far only been alluded to in a Comment.

comment How to use DateDiff() Function across day transition in ArcGIS Field Calculator?
Would you be able to edit your Question to include the code which has been successful for "within the same day" and that which causes problems across days, please? Also, be sure to include the version of ArcGIS for Desktop, and the spatial data storage format (shapefile, file geodatabase, etc) that you are using.

comment How can I make ArcGIS 10.2 overwrite folders instead of pasting a new/copy folder (with a (1) suffix?)
Could be copy/paste in Catalog window of ArcMap too. I suspect that this is by design rather than a bug, and that an ArcCatalog tag on this may help to get it clarified even if it is the Catalog window being used, so am going to add that.

comment Where can I find historic aerials for some areas in Dona Ana County, New Mexico?
You may want to consider posting Questions such as this at opendata.stackexchange.com. Once that site leaves Beta I will probably start to vote for Questions like this to be migrated from here: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3569/…

comment Alternatives for ArcGIS Data Reviewer?
As it stands I think your Question is too broad. To avoid it being closed I recommend you focus it on a key specific requirement that you are seeking software to meet and edit your Question to describe that in more detail.

comment How to find measures of points that are close to route in ArcGIS 10.2?
I would be surprised if Create Routes has not been in ArcGIS for Desktop as long as Linear Referencing because its ArcInfo Workstation equivalent of ARCROUTE was usually first step of any Dynamic Segmentation work.

comment How create one single coverage polygon feature class from XY point data?
Would you be able to edit your Question to describe what you mean by coverage, please? I suspect that you are trying to get a tool working that will create output that is not what you are expecting. The term coverage can mean an old Esri vector format, or a raster format (as in Web Coverage Service), and there may be other meanings too.
