# Help with simple crystal formula. Seconds to hours:min

Hi, I have a field in second, and I need to convert it to hours:min. Here is what I want to do:

shared Numbervar hrs = int({pkdaily;1.dtdur} / 3600)

shared Numbervar min = int({pkdaily;1.dtdur} / 60) - (hrs*60))

if min = 60 then
min = 0
hrs = hrs + 1

return totext({pkdaily;1.dtcalls},0) + " (" + totext(hrs) + ":" + totext(min) + ")"

How do I make the formula work in Crystal?

Thanks,
Terry

Try this:

local numbervar totalsecs := {pkdaily;1.dtdur};
local numbervar hours := int(totalsecs / 3600);
local numbervar mins  := int(remainder(totalsecs,3600)/60);

totext({pkdaily;1.dtcalls},0) + " (" + totext(hours) + ":" + totext(mins) + ")"
