Hi,
you can use the Datediff() function whereby you will have to pass 3 arguments,
two of which are the dates for which you have to find the difference. the last argument is the format in which you want the difference like h for hour, s for seconds, m for months, d for days, etc. once you get the difference, you can convert it in to time again which is a simple arithmetic.

Dim TheDate As Date   ' Declare variables.
Dim Msg
TheDate = InputBox("Enter in this format ->  " & Now)
Msg = "Hours from now: " & DateDiff("h", Now, TheDate)
MsgBox Msg
Msg = "Minutes from now: " & DateDiff("n", Now, TheDate)
MsgBox Msg
Msg = "Seconds from now: " & DateDiff("s", Now, TheDate)
MsgBox Msg
