declare @mint int   /*  minutes */
set @mint = 3456

Select @mint,
Cast(@mint / 1440 as Varchar) + ':' +
Cast((@mint%1440) / 60 as Varchar) + ':' +
Cast(@mint % 60 as Varchar)

try this in expression


CChar(Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value/1440) + ":" + CChar((DivRem(Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value,1440))/60) + ":" + CChar(DivRem(Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value,60)) + ":00"

the ":00" in last is for seconds, as the number is in minutes, you cannot divide them into seconds

No Suresh,

It shows the error as "wrong number of arguments" in the following part

CChar((DivRem(Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value,1440))/60)

Replace DivRem(Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value,1440)   to Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value Mod 1440


and



DivRem(Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value,60) to Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value Mod 60

I use like the following,

Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value \ 1440  & ":" & Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value \ 60 & ":" & Fields!I_TIME_ON_GPS.Value mod 60



Its working,  Thanks suresh for your idea.
