What is the difference between the use of had, has. have???
"Had" is the past tense of the verb "to have".
"Has" is the present tense of the verb "to have". Third person singular.
"Have" is the present tense of the verb "to have". Except for the third person singular.

A pleasure to help you, Tanzhang. If you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to ask.
Also "had" is the perfect participle form ("He has had ...") and the passive or past participle form ("A good time was had ..."), and "have" is the non-finite form (e.g., accompanying a finite auxiliary verb: "will/should/... have").
Separate names with a comma.
