Subj:   Table design - time fields
From:   Barbara George

What are the advantages/disadvantages of storing time fields as a single integer field, as opposed to storing the hours, minutes and seconds separately?

We use the time for the following:

Summary by hour

Elapsed time (end time - start time)

Min & max times (first & last)

Printing (display on reports)

Comments appreciated - Thanks
