How to add a TIMER?

I'm VERY new to FMP.

Is there a TIMER function? I'd like to make a database form (new to the

terminology) that has Start; Stop; Resume; and Reset buttons; that shows the

time in HH:MM:SS format, as well as in 1/10's of an hour (or other increment

that I desire).

Also, I'd like the 'time' to be such that it can be 'added' or 'subtracted'

from other values, so I could see how much total time was spent (in 1/10's

of hours, as well as HH:MM:SS).

Also, a 'round up' function would be nice, so 3 mintues 44 seconds yields .1

hour; 6 minutes 12 seconds yields .2 hours; etc.

I imagine many would find this helpful, so as full of an explanation as

possible would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!

You'll have to use the Status(CurrentTime) function to get the current time and store that in separate time fields.

Time fields can be be 'added' or 'subtracted' at will.

Als when you enter a time value in a number field, it automatically gets converted to an amount of seconds, so you can thn divide it into whatever increments you want with some more calculations...

Regards,

Ernst.
