I have an access data base   (MDB) file where i want to perform a column hour/min count (in "hours" & "Mins) format.
The column criteria I have is  the "date" and a column for the associated "time".   What would the formula or SQL Query look like to produce this in the following format based on the date & time entered.

example:     1 day and a 1/2 day would produce the following format:     36:00 (hrs/mins)

I have attached the DB.    Please look at "AOSQuery" specifically columns  "ETRDate" & "ETRTime".    I need to generate a new column in this Query that will display the elapsed time in (hrs:mins format) from when these dates are entered. into the DB.    As I mentioned a day and 1/2 would look like   36:00    or 36 hours and 00 minutes.

Try this:

SELECT ID, Dates, Ship, ArrTime, InFlt, History, ETRDate, ETRTime, ETR, Station, Status1, 
    Updated, Status1, DateDiff("h", Dates + ArrTime, ETRDate + ETRTime) & ":" & 
    Format(DateDiff("n", Dates + ArrTime, ETRDate + ETRTime) Mod 60, "00") AS Elapsed
FROM AOS;

Placed it in as a SQL Query the format looks good.    Could you provide SQL for arrival "date" and "time",  with "Now() function?  Instead of the "ETRDate" & "ETRTime" comparison?
