# Time problem in CR8.5

How to use time value bigger than 24 hours.
I want to add 30 hours with 50 hours = 80 hours(not 3 days and 8 hours);

Thanks,SD.

Use the datediff or dateadd function in a formula.

datediff("h",{date1},{date2}) will return the number of hours between the two datetime values specified.

dateadd("h",50,{date1}) will return the date and time 50 hours from the datetime value specified.

I don't want to work with date, I want to work with time in hours only.
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
numbervar heures1 :=Sum ({@heure_1}, {Vue_Ressources_Engin.Mois});
numbervar minutes1 :=Sum ({@minute_1}, {Vue_Ressources_Engin.Mois});
numbervar minutes_en_plus1:=0;

if minutes1 > 59 THEN  minutes_en_plus1:= Int ( minutes1 / 60);
if minutes1 > 59 THEN minutes1 := minutes1 mod 60;

heures1:= heures1 + minutes_en_plus1;
Time (heures1,minutes1,0)  ;
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

How to do with "heures1" > 24 ?

You will need to do something like

Time (heures1 mod 24,minutes1,0)

If you want to work with time values which do not conform to the 24 hour clock, you cannot use the builtin date/time data types.

Agree time is restricted to 24 hours then you get days.  Why not store the value as a number and simply work with it that way.
