Adding minutes to a time value

Adding minutes to a time value


I have a field that holds a value called


We'll say the user chose "9:00:00 AM" as the appointment time.

I want to take the me.appointmentTime value and add 5 minutes to it and set the value of another field to that value.

Me.time1 = me.appoitnmentTime + 5 minutes

me.time1 would then equal 9:05:00 AM

How do I make this happen?


RE: Adding minutes to a time value

TIME is store as DAYS

THEREFORE, Convert minutes to days


Me.time1 = TimeValue(me.appoitnmentTime) + 5/24/60


glassesJust traded in my old subtlety...
for a NUANCE!tongue

RE: Adding minutes to a time value

Personally I prefer what I think is clearer


Me.Time1 = Me.AppointmentTime + TimeValue("00:05")
