Have a look at this older thread:
Re: distance and direction
put that into a function. (works for 2D projected points).
The same logic is used in this thread to turn the result into a "compas" returning N, E, W, S:
Re: Query based on direction
I hope this helps you out.

Thanks, the link (Re: distance and direction works for me.
I understand that atan of delta in x,y coordinates is computed.
Can you explain me necessity to check whether delta is equal to zero, greater than zero etc...

Glad it helps. Maybe you can reward some points ;)
In the calculations is a division by the delta Y. if this is 0 you will get a division by zero error.
delta Y is = 0 when the directions are either 90 = pi / 2 or 270 = 3 * (pi / 2). To find this out you have to check delta X bigger or smaller then zero.
The second bit is to check which quadrant you'll end up in (when delta Y is not zero), and to act accordingly, adding or subtracting the the ATAN from 0, 90, 180, 360.
