I'm getting an error on a query on some machines, but not mine
dao reference 3.6

Hours Minutes: Format([inprogress_or_closed_at]-[OPENED_AT],"Short Time")

Could there be another way to write this query ?

error:
"function is not available in expressions in query expression"

Thanks

I've attached a database that will help you.  It has functions to work with dates.

The problem with what you are doing is that date fields represent a point in time.  They do not represent elapsed time which is what you are trying to calculate.

On those machines your application is missing a reference. Go to the code window, menu Tools, References and check that none is MISSING. If so, correct that.

Compile and save the application.
