Is there a built-in function in Visual Basic 2005 that converts for example 1000 to 10:00a or 1800 to 6:00p?  If not,  how do I do this using Visual Basic 2005?

Not sure if there is a function but if you have to write your own code id do something like (idk if this is neccesarrly the best way about it)

if tempTime >= 1300 then
tempTime = (tempTime - 1200)
tempString = tempTime.tostring
tempString = tempString.insert(2,":") & "PM"
else
tempString = tempTime.tostring
tempString &= "AM"

If this dont work its something very simular and ill try it in the morning to get it perfect for you im on my laptop which I dont have vs instealled on.

Hi rgturner,

You can use something like this....

    Date.ParseExact(1800, "HHmm", Nothing).ToString("h:mmt").ToLower

Regards,

Wayne
