It can be done in either syntax.  Here it is in Crystal

Local NumberVar TotalSeconds;
Local NumberVar HoursLeft;
Local NumberVar MinutesLeft;
Local NumberVar DaysLeft;

TotalSeconds := DateDiff('s',{StartDateTime},{EndDateTime});
DaysLeft := TotalSeconds \ (60*60*24);
TotalSeconds  := TotalSeconds mod (60*60*24);
HoursLeft := TotalSeconds \ (60 * 60);
TotalSeconds := TotalSeconds mod (60 * 60);
MinutesLeft := TotalSeconds \ 60;
TotalSeconds := TotalSeconds  mod 60;

CStr(DaysLeft ,0) & " days  " & CStr(HoursLeft ,0) & ":" & CStr(MinutesLeft,0) & ":" CStr(TotalSeconds  ,0)
