Hello.

I would like to store the following time (21 minute 22 seconds and 45 hundreth)

I would like to input it like this:   21:22.45

I would also need this value for some calculations (1282.45 s). Can I convert it to seconds and then back to a mm:ss.xx format ?

Thanks

Marcel

I would think that would you store the initial value (21:22.45) as Short Time.  To get the seconds, just multiply by 60.

Not working, I cannot enter the time value 21:22.45 in a field formated as Short Time. It does not accept this value

I guess you'll need to go and work with fractions, just checkout:

(Many other fine samples!)
