Help me with Date time manipulation

I have a date stamp, let
6/24/2013 9:32:04 PM

i want to deduct 7 hours

and get
6/24/2013 2:32:04 PM

In Business Objects i am using the formula :

= RelativeDate([DateToConvert];-1)------gives me subtraction of 1 day or 24 hours.
7 hours is 0.29 of 1 day and i can use this
= RelativeDate([DateToConvert];-0.29)

but it does not work exactly
So the question is how to deduct hours from the date?

Which tool are you using?

Is it Crystal?
Crystal has a DateAdd function

DateAdd("h",-7,{DateField})

Is it WebI?
Try

= RelativeDate([DateToConvert];-7/24)


What doesn't seem to be working?
