    Unanswered: Summing durations

    Hi, first time here, hope this doesn't sound too dumb. I'm trying to adjust a db that someone else has set up ... anyway,

    I want to sum durations (of video). The durations in the table are numbers formatted as "00.00". They are all in minutes and seconds.

    When I sum them (either in a report or a query) I get different results depending on the format I have entered (either 00.00 or nn:ss). No results are correct!

    I'm not sure if I'm putting formats in the wrong spot or the wrong way. I've tried putting everything everywhere & now I'm VERY confused.

    Obviously there's something I'm completely misunderstanding ...

    What do you envision your end result looking like? Hours:Minuteseconds?
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...

    The total should always appear as minutes and seconds.

    mmmmmmmmmmm
    that a good one

    as minutes and seconds. is not 100 base suming then up is going to be a bit tricky

    ie sec only count up to 60 then a 1min clicks over that what you need to do
    get the computer to count/sum in 60th

    I'll look for some old code I wrote to fix this I wrote a few PC's ago
