In my form, it has two text box that i set its format to ##:## using MaskEdit.

These two textboxes are for user to key in time.
From 01:00  To 11:15

When user click the calculate button, program will calculate the time.  This is use to calculate total working hours.

The result.. should be 10:15, right?  how to do this?  any VB function can calculate this directly?

I used DateDiff function to calculate and return in minutes but the result not accurate. If not mistaken, it return 1 hours for this.

I have to save the calculation result in 10.15 (numberic field) so that i can use it to calculate total salary.  10.15 means 10 hours + 10 minutes.

I know the design is not good.. any good suggestion?
I have to save the total hours in numberic data type because in other forms, i used SQL to calculate total salary.  if save in string, the result will not accurate.

Please tell me how to solve this problem, thanks.

Hi yongyih,

you can use datediff

DateDiff(interval, date1, date2[, firstdayofweek[, firstweekofyear]])

Hi yongyih,

Try this:

Private Sub Command3_Click()
    Text1 = "13:00"
    Text2 = "23:15"
    Dim starttime As Date
    Dim stoptime As Date
    starttime = Date + CDate(Text1)
    stoptime = Date + CDate(Text2)
    MsgBox Format(stoptime - starttime, "hh:mm")
End Sub

you used it already, i'm getting lazy

you have to format the result

Sub test()

Dim TimeOne As String
Dim TimeTwo As String

TimeOne = TimeValue(Now)
TimeTwo = TimeValue(NOw-.5)

MsgBox Format$(TimeValue(dteOut) - TimeValue(dteIn), "h:mm:ss")

end sub

oops....

Sub test()

Dim TimeOne As String
Dim TimeTwo As String

TimeOne = TimeValue(Now)
TimeTwo = TimeValue(Now - 0.5)

MsgBox Format$(TimeValue(TimeOne) - TimeValue(TimeTwo), "h:mm:ss")

End Sub

Try this:

Public Function TimeDiff(ByVal Interval As String, ByVal Time1 As String, ByVal Time2 As String)
   
    Dim HourTime1, HourTime2, MinuteTime1, MinuteTime2, SecondTime1, SecondTime2, TimeDifference
    Dim Time1InSeconds, Time2InSeconds
    Time1 = FormatDateTime(Time1, vbLongTime)
    Time2 = FormatDateTime(Time2, vbLongTime)
    HourTime1 = Hour(Time1)
    HourTime2 = Hour(Time2)
    MinuteTime1 = Minute(Time1)
    MinuteTime2 = Minute(Time2)
    SecondTime1 = Second(Time1)
    SecondTime2 = Second(Time2)
    Time1InSeconds = SecondTime1 + (MinuteTime1 * 60) + (HourTime1 * 3600)
    Time2InSeconds = SecondTime2 + (MinuteTime2 * 60) + (HourTime2 * 3600)
    TimeDifference = Time2InSeconds - Time1InSeconds
    Select Case Interval
        Case "h"
            TimeDifference = TimeDifference / 3600
        Case "m"
            TimeDifference = TimeDifference / 60
    End Select
    TimeDiff = TimeDifference
End Function

Call it this way,

TIME = TimeDiff("h", timStart, timNow)

Use "h" "m" "s" for hours minutes and seconds.

Good luck!
