# Thread: Problem in SUM total hours without compute the seconds

1. ## Problem in SUM total hours without compute the seconds

Hi..

I notice that I got problem in my code:

Code:
`SELECT sec_to_time(SUM(time_to_sec(Rendered))) FROM reg_att WHERE EMP_NO = '09300139';`

in this query the output is : 103:52:27 // total hours.

but it's wrong it should only be 103:51 //if did not count the seconds.

Now my question is what would be the syntax to correct the result.

this is the sample data:

08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
08:00:00
07:56:42
07:55:45
Thank you so much.

• Talk about a way to be sure you don't get answers...

No wonder it seems that NewPHPCoder often ignores my answers. I guess I don't need to bother answering him any more.

• I resolve my problem by changing my code for getting the rendered:

Code:
```when time_to_sec(time(LOGIN)) BETWEEN time_to_sec('10:00:00') AND time_to_sec('10:35:00') AND time_to_sec(time(LOGOUT)) BETWEEN time_to_sec('13:35:00') AND time_to_sec('14:35:00')
AND DATE_FORMAT(LOGIN, '%W') IN ('Monday', 'Tuesday', 'Wednesday', 'Thursday', 'Friday', 'Saturday')
then sec_to_time(CEIL((time_to_sec(concat(substr(LOGOUT, 1,10), ' ' , '04:00:00')) +
(time_to_sec(LOGOUT) - time_to_sec(concat(substr(LOGOUT, 1,10), ' ' , '14:35:00')))) / 60) * 60)```
Thank you

I'm sorry if I'm late in answering your post, cause I tried my best also to correct my codes. But thank you so much for your effort to help me..

I hope you don't get mad to me

• The idea is for you to pick a forum, any ONE of them, and stick to posting in it. You post many questions in a day (and that's okay to have questions), you are just wasting time when you post in multiple forums so one person is working on a solution for you yet you've already got an answer in a different forum.
