Yes - do the math



<cfset currentsec = 55800>

<cffunction name="getTime">
<cfargument name="mysec" type="numeric" required="true">

<cfset mymin = mysec / 60>

<cfset myhours = mymin / 60>

<cfset timeHours = ListFirst(myhours, '.')>
<cfset timeminutes = ListLast(myhours, '.') * 60>

<cfset thetime = timeHours & ":" & timeminutes>
<cfif timeHours GTE 12>
   <cfset thetime = thetime & " pm">
<cfelse>
   <cfset thetime = thetime & " am">
</cfif>

<cfreturn thetime>
</cffunction>

hi,

mrichmon some small changes:

<cffunction name="getTime">
<cfargument name="mysec" type="numeric" required="true">

<cfset timesec = mysec mod 60>
<cfset timemin = ((mysec - timesec) mod 3600) / 60>
<cfset timehour = (mysec - (timemin*60)) / 3600>

<cfreturn createtime(timehour, timemin, timesec)>
</cffunction>
