Hi! When I FORMATDATETIME and specify 2 for e.g. FORMDATETIME(NOW(),2)...it gives me the time with seconds. How can I get rid of the seconds...I would like it to display

2:30 PM

instead of

2:30:00 PM

Please help

change the regional settings to not display seconds.. or try:

MyVar = Left(MyVar,len(MyVar)-6) & Right(MyVar,3)

Cdate it next if needed to be a date data type.. otherwise leave MyVar as is..

HI,

Try using formatdatetime(Now(),4), this will give you the time in HH:MM format. 4=vbShortTime

Hope this helps you.
GOOD LUCK...:)

<%
strAMPM = instr(1,FormatDateTime(now(),3),"AM")

if strAMPM > 0 then
Response.Write FormatDateTime(now(),4)& " AM"
else
strtime = mid(FormatDateTime(now(),4),1,5)
Response.Write strtime & " PM"
end if
%>
This code worked perfectly.

Thanks Indoria.
