Dear friend you can use  Now() function for both Date And Time .
 if you want only time you can use Time()
   if you want only  date you can use Date() function


Regards..

Date, Time and Now are probably what you want, but also take a look at the following functions: Year, Month, Day, Hour, Minute and Second.

Also does anyone know a bit of code that would allow the subtraction of time over midnight.
E.g From 1300 (PM) Thursday 9 March to
 0200 (AM) Friday 10 March.

The Code will tell the difference between the two in days,hours & minutes.

Thanks
