new to CR - CR XI  - my time field comes in as a number but needs to be converted to military time
 
for example   
number 124800 should be 1248
number 2400 should be 0024
number 21700 should be 0217
 
thanks for your help

See if this works for you:
CStr({table.timefield}/100, "0000")

I have three chapters of examples for how to program Crystal Reports and use built-in functions like this in my Encyclopedia book. You can find out more about my books at Amazon.com or reading the Crystal Reports eBooks online.
