I need to calculate the time between two dates into hours, minutes and seconds between the two times.  Say, a task starts at 6/13/2008  3:30:51 PM and end at   6/13/2008 7:10:28 PM, I need to the total time in hours, minutes and second.  I started with the DateDiff using seconds as the unit, but simply dividing by 60 would get total minutes, but the remainder for seconds is in tenths, rather than the seconds I want.  How do I transalate into a resul of say 3 hours, 25 minutes and 15 seconds?

place this codes in a module

Function ElapsedTime (Interval)
  Dim x
  x = Int(CSng(Interval * 24 * 3600)) & " Seconds"
  Debug.Print x
  x = Int(CSng(Interval * 24 * 60)) & ":" & Format(Interval, "ss") _
     & " Minutes:Seconds"
  Debug.Print x
  x = Int(CSng(Interval * 24)) & ":" & Format(Interval, "nn:ss") _
     & " Hours:Minutes:Seconds"
  Debug.Print x
  x = Int(CSng(Interval)) & " days " & Format(Interval, "hh") _
     & " Hours " & Format(Interval, "nn") & " Minutes " & _
     Format(Interval, "ss") & " Seconds"
  Debug.Print x

End Function

to use, pass the  two values to the function like this

ElapsedTime(#6/13/2008 7:10:28 PM#-#6/13/2008  3:30:51 PM#)
