I am trying to calculate the total hours worked per individual but I'm unsure how to do this with a query.

For instance, Table 1 may look like this:

ID         EmployeeID             DTStart                                DTEnd                                 Total Hours?
1          1234                      15/08/2010 11:30:00            15/08/2010 18:45:00
2          5678                      16/08/2010 08:45:00            16/08/2010 18:45:00
3          5678                      16/08/2010 22:10:00            17/08/2010 02:30:00
4          3456                      16/08/2010 22:00:00            16/08/2010 23:30:00
5          5678                      18/08/2010 18:00:00            19/08/2010 01:30:00


If for example I wanted to know the total hours for employee 5678, how could I work this out in an access query?  I need two results, the first, total hours each instance, and the second total hours combined for each employeeID?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks,

Jon

Assuming DTStart and DTEnd are both using date/time data type, in Access:
SELECT EmployeeID, Sum(DTEnd - DTStart) * 24 AS HrsWorked
FROM [Table 1]
GROUP BY EmployeeID

This works brilliantly for the first part of my question and I can get the rest sorted myself now.

Thanks,
