Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Based on the new details provided:

You probably need to convert the results of your LEFT and MID functions to numbers, since those functions return strings.

Try something like this:

clockIn := datetime(ToNumber(left(str,4)), ToNumber(mid(str,5,2)), ToNumber(mid(str,7,2)), ToNumber(mid(str,9,2)), ToNumber(mid(str,11,2)), ToNumber(mid(str,13,2)));

    Six have been given, here's the code. I'm trying to determine if a employee has worked a double back shift. they need to have 8hrs worked and 8hrs rest between shifts. if not that is considered a double back, so i need to compare the clock out time to their clock in time. These are numeric fields. cktimhim.tlatim (Clk In) cktimhim.tlatom (Ck Ot) //datetime(yyyy,mm,dd,hh,mm,ss) clockIn := datetime(left(str,4), mid(str,5,2), mid(str,7,2), mid(str,9,2), mid(str,11,2), mid(str,13,2)); this is where I'n getting the error, how can I get around it.
