How to change value of hours and seconds in the same date string?

I have a vba dateString variable in "longTime format" that is uncorrected for daylight saving,
I must adjust the hours value by -1, and then I need to adjust the seconds value by -1

Dim strDate As String
Dim dtDate As Date

The model of my string date:
      strDate = Format(Time, "Log Time")n
I can change the hour parameter in that date
      dtDate = DateAdd("h", -1, strDate)
or the second parameter
      dtDate = DateAdd("s", -1, strDate)

But how do I change BOTH parameters in the same date?
    ("s", -1, strDate) and ("h", -1, strDate)

Thanks
Kelvin

try this:
dtDate = DateAdd("h", -1, strDate)
    dtDate = DateAdd("s", -1, dtDate)

Open in new window

or
dtDate  = DateAdd("s", -1, DateAdd("h", -1, Format(Time, "Long Time")))

Open in new window

or
dtDate  = DateAdd("s", -1, DateAdd("h", -1, strDate))

Open in new window

Hi,

pls try

dtDate = DateAdd("s", -3601, strDate)

Open in new window

3600s = 1h
