    Hi folks. First, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who helped me
    with the subform question. Now, to the good stuff. I'm currently exporting
    data from an application that I uses to play my digital music (read iTunes).
    One of the fields is for track legnth, but iTunes keeps track of this info in
    miliseconds, not minutes. I want to include the track legnth in a table i'm
    creating but can't find an easy solution to converting the miliseconds iTunes
    uses into a user friendly minutes. Thanks for the help.

    =[YourField]/ (1000 * 60)

    1000 miliseconds equal one second and 60 seconds equal one minute.

    If you'ld like it in minutes and seconds - e.g. 3:42 - rather than the
    less clear 3.70 minutes, try an expression like

    [TrackLength] \ 60000 & Format([TrackLength] \ 1000 MOD 60, "\:00")

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
