Time converted to fraction

Hi All,


i'm very new to FileMaker so this maybe a really basic question.


I have a timesheet with StartingDate, TimeStarted,TimeFinished & a calculation field named ElapsedTime to calculate hours worked using
Mod (TimeFinished- TimeStarted+ 86400; 86400)


I then have another Field called ConvertToFraction set as a calculation
Hour(ElapsedTime) & Minute(ElapsedTime) / 60
this converts the time worked into a fraction so 7 hour 30 minutes will show 7.5 - so far so good


The field is set to a number with 2 decimals.


My problem is if a employee enters say 7:00am to 3:00pm the calculation comes out as 80 rather than 8.


How do i fix this.


Thanks in advanced
