Hi All,

I want to calculate number of days, hours and minutes from number of milliseconds. Can you please tell me how I would do it.


Thanks in advance.

Do you need to know the actual calculations to be done or do you need to know how to do these calculations in Java ?

The / operator will divide one number by another
Note that dividing a long by a long will give you a long as the answer - any fractional part will be lost.
e.g.

The % operator will give you the remainder after a division

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
