I need to calculate the elapsed time in minutes. (Eg:Start Time - 2:30PM End Time - 5:30PM, Elapsed Time= 180 minutes) How can I achieve this? Thank you.
<DAVECOMMENT>You can do it fairly easily in either the formula language or LotusScript. I have included a simple example, using time constants in both languages. Good Luck!
<START FORMULA EXAMPLE> Time1:=[08:00:01]; Time2:=[10:00:01]; Time3:=Time2-Time1; @Prompt([OK];"Test A";@Text(Time3)); @Prompt([OK];"Test A";@Text(Time3/60)) <END FORMULA EXAMPLE>
When you subtract date/time values, the resultant value is the time difference in seconds. Simply divide this number by 60 to get the minutes.
<START LS EXAMPLE> Dim ndtTime1 As New NotesDateTime("08:00:00") Dim ndtTime2 As New NotesDateTime("10:00:00") Dim lngTimeDiff As Long Dim intMinutes As Integer intMinutes=60 lngTimeDiff=ndtTime2.TimeDifference(ndtTime1) Print lngTimeDiff/intMinutes <END LS EXAMPLE>
