DateDiff in Minutes - Round to nearest minute?

DateDiff in Minutes - Round to nearest minute?

(OP)
I have data like this:
actdate time1 time2
1/1/01 12:05 PM 2:10 PM

I do a datediff formula in a query, as follows:

CODE

DateDiff("n",[TimeTable]![time1],[TimeTable]![time2])/60 

problem is that I get a result in the query like 2.08111111111

I want to round to the nearest minute/ 100th decimal, so that I get 2.08, or if the calculation is 2.0854477467 then 2.09

Can someone please assist? I've been looking all over and can't seem to find what should be an easy thing to do.

RE: DateDiff in Minutes - Round to nearest minute?

Could you use the Round function?

Round(
DateDiff("n",[TimeTable]![time1],[TimeTable]![time1])/60, 2)

Have fun.
