Hi...how do you use the TTimestamp type? What it says in the online help doesn't explain a thing! I keep getting a value of 0 in both the date field and time field. All I want to do is display to the user how long my program takes to run in seconds. Basically, I want to have a "begintime" value when my process starts running, then an "endtime" value when it's done. Then subtract begintime from endtime to get the elapsed time in seconds...nothing complicated.
