## DateDiff - Hours and Minutes

Hi all,

I have 2 multi-choice boxes (not time pickers) with a 'Start Time' and 'End Time'.  Someone on here kindly helped me work out the hours between the selected times but I also need minutes....if possible.

On the example below, I would like it to show minutes and hours e.g. 1.5 hour or 1.30  rather than just the hours

``````If(DataCardValue42.Selected.Value = "Work", DateDiff (
DateTimeValue (DataCardValue33.Selected.Value),
DateTimeValue (DataCardValue34.Selected.Value),
"hours"
))``````

Hi @Ian-S :

The reason is that the unit you use when calculating is 'hours'. Just replace it with minutes and divide by 60.

``````If(DataCardValue42.Selected.Value = "Work",
DateDiff (
DateTimeValue (DataCardValue33.Selected.Value),
DateTimeValue (DataCardValue34.Selected.Value),
Minutes
)/60
)``````

Best Regards,

(datediff(, hours) - RoundDown(datediff, hours))  * 60

this will give you min..

formula obvio not complete but you get the idea

Thanks CDS.  I am not sure about the code???   (this is all very new to me).   Is the RoundDown(datediff, hours))  * 60 in addition to my existing code??

Sorry for being stupid!

Credit for this has to Go to Shane Young - with this video - Power Apps Date Time Math - Do calculations for payroll and timesheets - YouTube

I used a field to collate both start time and minutes then end time and minutes and used the following:

With({minutesbetween:
DateDiff(TimeValue('Input - Start Time'.Text),TimeValue('Input - EndTime_2'.Text), Minutes) },
With({minutesleftover: Mod(minutesbetween, 60)},
(minutesbetween - minutesleftover)/60 & ":" &minutesleftover))

this will then give the number of hours difference in a time format e.g 7:25 minutes difference rather than 7.4444

Try the following code it should work:

In my case DateValue14. is the time out, DateValue13 is the time in

RoundDown(Text(DateDiff(DateValue14.SelectedDate+Time(Value(HourValue10.Selected.Value),Value(MinuteValue13.Selected.Value),0),DateValue15.SelectedDate+Time(Value(HourValue11.Selected.Value),Value(MinuteValue14.Selected.Value),0),TimeUnit.Minutes)/60),0)&" Hours : "&Mod(DateDiff(DateValue14.SelectedDate+Time(Value(HourValue10.Selected.Value),Value(MinuteValue13.Selected.Value),0),DateValue15.SelectedDate+Time(Value(HourValue11.Selected.Value),Value(MinuteValue14.Selected.Value),0),TimeUnit.Minutes),60)& " Minutes"

Good luck
