## how to calculator hours difference combine with the date and time

(OP)
Hello,

I am trying to calculator hours differences that combine with date and time

e.g:

date1(dd/mmm/yyyy) time1(hh:mm:ss)
date2(dd/mmm/yyyy) time2(hh:mm:ss)

hours difference= (date2 + time2) - (date1+time1) .....????

Thanks

### RE: how to calculator hours difference combine with the date and time

You will need to use the SecondsAfter method which will give you the seconds difference between the dates. You will also need the DaysAfter method to get the number of days between the two dates. After that it is just a matter of converting days and seconds to hours.

The days could be calculated like this but how to get the expression:

if time2>time1, (daysafter( date1, date2 )) + abs(secondsafter(time1, time2)/86400)

if time2<time1, ((daysafter( date1, date2 )) + abs(secondsafter(time1, time2)/86400))-1

I tried but got the error messages...

Thanks!
