Need to add time to existing date pulled from a query for display only.

Hi all,

I have this now:

<%=FormatDateTime((rs.Fields.Item("order_datetime").Value),3)%>

which produces the date/time from the databse query. I need to add 30 minutes to this and display it on my .asp page. Any help would be much appreciated.

Use DateAdd

<%=FormatDateTime(DateAdd("m", 30, (rs.Fields.Item("order_datetime").Value)),3)%>

oops - "m" is for "Month", "n" is for Minute; use this instead
<%=FormatDateTime(DateAdd("n", 30, (rs.Fields.Item("order_datetime").Value)),3)%>

Thanks so much! I thought it was the DateAdd, but I couldn't figure out how to implement it in my current expression.

Thanks again!
