Accepted Solutions

Hi,

The interval function formats the expression as a time interval according to the string given

as a format-code. If the format code is omitted, the

time format set in the operating system is used. Intervals may be formatted as a

time, as days or as a combination of days, hours, minutes, seconds and fractions

of seconds.

Syntax:

Interval(expression[,Format Code])

Example:

interval( A-B, 'D hh:mm' ) where A=97-08-06 09:00:00 and B=96-08-06 00:00:00

returns:

String:365 09:00

Number : 365.375

interval( A ) where A=1.375

returns:

String:09:00:00

Number : 0.375
