# Re: [libreoffice-users] Strange question on Macro?? (in Spreadsheet)

```Did a test with the following:
In cell A1 =int(now())
in cell A2 =A1+time(1,12,0)
In cell B2 =Datedif(\$a\$1,a2,d)'get days diff
in cellC2 =A2-\$A\$1'gets HH:MM:SS but hours is total
in cell D2 = (A2-\$A\$1)-int(a2-\$a\$1)'gets the hours minutes seconds
in cell E2
=DATEDIF(\$A\$1,A2,d)daysTEXT((A2-\$A\$1)-INT(A2-\$A\$1),HhoursMminutes)

Result is like
0 days 1 hours 12 minutes
in e155 after copying7 days 16 hours 48 minutes

Copied A2-E2 to A3 down to E155

The formula in E2 might do what you want??
Did have it in F2 with the additions of seconds, but found the numbers would
get off at points with a second. Probable the rounding factor of second
portion??

Hope that gives and ideal.Note thespacein E2 formula.

Good Luck.

I've been trying to take a formula that calculates the difference between to
dates into years/months/days.

I'll ask if anyone has a macro or formulae that would do almost the same
thing but allow it to be expressed further out to includehoursand
minutesI'd like to see it if possible.

I have a running log of incidents and it has two sets of columns.

First pair isStartandEndof power event. That calculation would
be nice if I could express it as:

### Days, ## Hours, ## Minutes

The second calculation, the one that I've been working on is the
difference between the previousEndand the newStartand that I do
need to express[# Year][# Months][## Days][## Hours] ## Minuteswhere
the values of '0' wouldn't be shown (but that's a luxury right now)

The 'datedif' function would work if it accepted the arguments for
smaller measures such ash/m/s.

Any suggestions?
