You can convert the hour part of the time string to minutes, add the minutes to it and concatenate with the seconds from the time string, as follows:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT CONCAT(
  2.               SUBSTR(mytime,1,2)*60+SUBSTR(mytime,4,2),
  3.               ':',
  4.               SUBSTR(mytime,7,2)
  5.               ) 
  6.        AS TIME time_in_mins from test;
the result is a char string.

Hi all. I have written a program that transfers data via FTP. I can calculate the rough amount of time left. I get a value such as 70.83 seconds left for instance. What I want to do is to change this to hh:mm:ss format. Obviously, VB.NET doesn't seem to want to convert this unless it is already a DATETIME cast.

Hi, I was looking at python & datetime and hoping that it would already have a method/func to translate time formats. I need to translate seconds to hh:mm:ss.ms and vice versa and would like the ability to do some basic arithmetic in these formats. I think that there just has to be a package or module out there that already does this with reasonable speed and accuracy.
