I just can't get this right grrrrrrr, I'm trying to show the number of hours and minutes, I can get the hours and the minutes separately but want to show as hours/minutes, eg 100 hours = 1 hour 40 minutes

Lateness Total Hours: (DateDiff('n',[Time due in],[Time arrived])/60)
Lateness Total Minutes: (DateDiff('n',[Time due in],[Time arrived]))
Lateness Total Hours/Minutes: (DateDiff('n',[Time due in],[Time arrived]))-(DateDiff('n',[Time due in],[Time arrived]))/60

This should give you the number of hours between in/out times:
Hours = DateDiff("h",[Datetimein],[datetimeout])
This should give you the leftover minutes after you subtract the full hours:
Minutes = DateDiff("n",[DatetimeIn],[datetimeOut])-((DateDiff("h",[DatetimeIn],[datetimeOut]))*60)

Works for me....

The above works if you want separate hours and minutes, or you could parse Gustav's solution results.
