I don't know why you would expect to get hours when you're asking the function to give you minutes. Divide the result by 60 and that will give you fractional hours.

DateDiff returns an integer so you can't use it for fractionals. You have to go to a lower unit and then divide. Look at my post again. I told you how to get fractionals.
