If you have a date and a time such as 2010-08-24 18:00 you can first convert this to a (unix) time stamp with the strtotime command. You can then use that time stamp in the date command to convert it to whatever display format you need:

$timestamp      = strtotime("2010-08-24 18:00");
   $date_and_time  = date("Y-m-d g:i A",$timestamp);
   $just_time      = date("g:i A",$timesatmp);

do {
        !isset($_SESSION['userId'])) { 

            header("Location: index.php?action=logoff"); 


//get currentship
    $cur_ship = $_POST['shipTrip'];
    $_SESSION['cur_ship'] = $cur_ship;
    $terminal = $_SESSION['computer'];

  //disable error reporting


 //set the default timezone  

$terminalFee = $montenegrofunc->select_currentTerminalFee();
$currentTerminal = $montenegrofunc->select_currentTerminal();

$currentPort = $currentTerminal[0][0];
$destination = $_REQUEST['destination'];

You need to post your code using code tags. If you have a question or if you are having a problem, please state what it is.

on the program there is a date and time already.we can filter it by dates which includes already the time..now i want to put the time departure which the user have to choose on the option value of time(1:00-12;00) and chooses if its am or pm...now the problem is how am i going to add it on the database and have a separate filtering for the sales reports by time..and ampm also....thanks
