I have a client who is using Crystal Reports 11 to create reports from an MS SQL database.  One of the tables contains some timespan fields, which just display as long integers when dropped onto a crystal report.

How does he (or I) format a timespan in Crystal so that is appears as HH:mm:ss format?

DO you know what the numbers represent?

If it is the number of seconds the above formulas will work.  If they represent something else then a different formula is required.

Its a timespan field, created in VB.Net, coverted to ticks and saved as a System.Int64, so I think that formula will work.  I'll test it.  Thanks.
