Description:

Needed to convert total number of seconds into the hh:mm:ss format, wasn't able to find a function so I created my own.

I think thhe function you were looking for is GetAsTime (...).
For 1711 it gives 00.28.31, by the way, but that must be a typo.

Or you can do it also as
Time ( 0 ; 0 ; 1711 )

None of the formula above worked, but when I added "(GetAsText ( secondsfield ))" I got the proper result:

Time (
(Floor ( (GetAsText ( secondsfield )) /3600 )) ;
(Floor ( (Mod ( (GetAsText ( secondsfield )) ; 3600 ) / 60) )) ;
(Floor ( Mod ( (Mod ( (GetAsText ( secondsfield )) ; 3600 )); 60 ) ))
)

Thanks for all the help! On the shoulders of giants...

Just realized this also works for the other formula:

Time ( 0 ; 0 ; (GetAsText ( secondsfield )) )
