i have attached sample db- open and a form comes up-
in is 8:00 am
out is 11:00 am
when you hit calculate button now it displays 3 - for hours between in and out-
If you look at calculate button code- you see i have 30 minutes being subtracted.
( if i have written code correctly)
Is there a way to display the decimal values in monday text button?
right now it displays 3
i want it to display 2.50

you have to use Single for the Field size of field Dmonday in the design view of your table
and use this calculation
Me.txtMonday = (DateDiff("n", Me.txtMonIN, Me.txtmMonOUT) - 30) / 60
