I need to calculate time differences in the negative. ie in a working day if you are due to work 8 hours and you work 7, then I need to display -1. This is for flexy time calculations.
I'm using Access 97 but would also like to know how to do this in Excel 97. I've got it to work +ve times ok in excel.

Hi,dken!
 There is absolute no problem with negative time in Access, and moreover in Excel. You just must set Number Attributes of cell in Excel to Date/Time, or for instanse General Numeric (it will be ok either).

Best Regards,

Bernstein Eli.
