In the code below the value of Forms!communications!Received is formatted as 24hr format but when the value is passed to Forms!communications!Message it is displaying as regular time (12Hr). How can i get it to show up in 24 hr time in the message field sam as it displays in the Forms!communications!Received



Forms!txtMessage = "Run Information " & " " & "Time Rec =" & " " & Forms!communications!Received

Sorry I meant "hh:nn:ss" in my snippet, not ss twice... mm is month, not minute.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Actually .... either one works;

?format(Time,"HH:nn:ss")
11:26:30

?Format(time,"HH:mm:ss")
11:13:02

which is surprising ...

In Regional settings it's mm

Well that's amusing, apparently it uses m as minute or month based on context.

Format(Now(),"yymm yy:mm hhmm hh:mm mm nn")
Displays: 1305 13:05 1433 14:33 05 33

I'm in EDT obviously, but regardless, definitely not hh:ss:ss as I typed initially...

Have to say ... in 20 year, I've never noticed that mm works (I don't think). Although I know in Regional settings it uses mm for minutes and MM for months.

?format(Time,"HH:MM:ss")
11:49:47

Seriously, lOL ...

Yes, apparently all about context.
