    Unanswered: timer function

    Hi guys, im looking to incorporate a timer function into my database.

    Basically at the moment students can takes test in the 'quiz' form - id like a function that starts a timer once its opened, and then display the time taken in a message box when the test is finished.

    Any ideas on how i should go about this would be much appreciated,

    you could use a timer, but if all you are interested in is elapsed time, an alternative is to take a start & finish time using now()
    timer events arn't guarnteed to be accurate, they are probably accurate enough, but your form may not receive them in the corrtect interval

    depending on how you create your form you could either use a button to stop & start the timer, or start the timer when the form loads.
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
