Converting Minutes to Hours & Minutes

Converting Minutes to Hours & Minutes

Converting Minutes to Hours & Minutes

I have a pdf form where the user enters hours and minutes for each day of the week.

So in one column they enter the hours - eg. 4 hours
In the other column they enter the mins - 40 minutes

I have another field which converts the 4 hours to minutes (4*60)

so I get a total mins (for the hours). I then add the minutes column and the mins (from the hours) to give me a total overall mintues eg. 500 minutes

How can I convert (in another textbox) the 500 minutes to hours and minutes. I tried divide by 60 but it gives me 8.3333.

Please help


RE: Converting Minutes to Hours & Minutes

Take the initeger value of the division as your hours, then use


hours % 60
to get the minutes.

The % operator gives you the remainder of a modulo division.

You could of course also just take the values of the separate text boxes, couldn't you?
