Well that was full of errors.. it should be > but i'm sure that you see what i mean. i just need to find the difference between two times in minutes when one time is in a date data type and the other in a string.

Jon,

Use the DateDiff function...

Dim CurrentTime       As Date
 
CurrentTime = "3/5/2000 11:00:00PM"
 
If DateDiff("n", CurrentTime, Now) = 30 Then
    MsgBox "It's been 30 minutes!"
Else
    MsgBox "It's been " & DateDiff("n", CurrentTime, Now) & " minutes!"
End If
