Help Please!!

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a database which stores a total time value for each entrie:

Example Hours, Minutes, Seconds 02:15:33

I want to get the total of every row. I can get the sum but it displays the result as a whole number:

Example: 1236894 instead of 143:46:14

Type data: time
Null: No
Default: 00:00:00

Any help would be great. Thanks in advanced.

Im not quite sure if i understand what you're asking but anyway, to do any maths on a date or time, you need to convert to a unix time stamp with [a href=\"http://php.inspire.net.nz/manual/en/function.mktime.php\" target=\"_blank\"]mktime()[/a] ]. You can then put it back into a normal format using [a href=\"http://php.inspire.net.nz/manual/en/function.date.php\" target=\"_blank\"]date()[/a]

The field in question already does this, I think. The data is listed in the format I want:

Field: TotalBlockTime
Data in this field is listed as: 02:15:33

I want to get the total TotalBlockTime of all rows.

Hello,

I am not sore if this will work, but no harm in trying....


select SEC_TO_TIME(sum(TIME_TO_SEC (TotalBlockTime) )) as total_time from table_name

let me know if it works.
