Hi listers,

I want to calculate the duration between two time points (-time1- and -time2-). The time variables are in string format and the variables appear in the format of HH:MM. I tried the following but it doesn't help:

gen double clock1 = clock(time1,"hm")

When time1 is 10:20, the new var -clock1- is 37200000.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
