I have a datediff that returns 1,367.2 hours.  I want to easily convert that to days, hours and minutes.  Can you help me out please?

Try a formula like this

Local NumberVar numDays;
Local NumberVar numHours;
Local NumberVar numMinutes;
Local NumberVar TimeDiff;

TimeDiff := DateDiff('h',{StartTime},{EndTime});  //THis is your datediff formula

numMinutes := TimeDIff * 60;
numDays := numMinutes \ (24 * 60);
numMinutes := numMinutes MOD (24 * 60);
numHours := numMinutes \ 60;
numMinutes := numMInutes MOD 60;

CStr(numDays,0) & ' days ' & CStr(numHours,0) & ' hours ' & CStr(numMinutes,0) & ' minutes.'
