Re: Time Difference Calculations

It has to with the functions Trunc and trunc. Trunc takes the first parameter and divides it by the second, then applies the function of trunc which cuts off the decimal part. The result is then multiplied by the second parameter.

Since your delta t used the value in hours, you have a large decimal part that was completely cut off.
