Hi Experts,

I am working on a way of converting seconds to m.ss but all i can get is hh.mm.ss using:

VarSeconds = 313.069875
VarTime = Format(DateAdd("s", VarSeconds, "00:00:00"), "hh.mm.ss")

This returns the time 00.05.13, but i would like 5.13 to be returned.

Also if the time is for example 10 minutes it needs to return 10.00 and not 0.00


Any ideas??

Thanks

Try this:

VarTime =  CStr(VarSeconds \ 60) & ":" & CStr(VarSeconds Mod 60)

That works great - just modified it a bit because 5 minutes was reading as 5:0 not 5:00.

Final Code:

VarTime = CStr(VarSeconds \ 60) & ":" & Format(CStr(VarSeconds Mod 60), "0#")


Thanks Anthony,
