You should be able to use either the Date structure, or a TimeSpan to do the necessary calculations to get hours and minutes.

Example:


Dim dt1 As New Date(2008, 1, 1, 23, 0, 0)
Dim dt2 As Date = Now
 
Dim ts As TimeSpan = dt2.Subtract(dt1)
Dim hours As Integer = ts.Hours
Dim minutes As Integer = ts.Minutes

It's a little unclear if the asker wants total minutes taken, in which case the code above needs to be tweaked slightly

Dim totalMinutes As Integer = 60 * ts.Hours + ts.Minutes

Other than that, TheLearnedOne is bang on (as usual)

Are you saying that you have a string column that has hours and minutes, and you need to calculate a sum?

Example:

Duration      Decimal
-----------      -----------
1:30            1.5
1:34            1.566667
1:35            1.583333
1:45            1.75
======      =======
6:24            6.4

Formulas
-----------
Decimal = Hours + (Minutes / 60)
Time = INT(Decimal) & ":" & (Decimal - INT(Decimal) * 60)
