Selection.Value = Now()
Starttime = Format(Now(), "hh:mm:ss")
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
 Dim finaltime As Date
 Dim time1, time2 As Date
 Range("D4").Value = time1
 Final = Format(Now(), "hh:mm:ss")
finaltime = Final - Starttime

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Wayne Taylor (webtubbs)Commented:
Don't use the Format function as it converts the times to a String.

Make sure StartTime and finaltime are declared as Date, and just set each to Now in the Click events...
Starttime = Now

Final = Now
