Getting closer...

s1 = "20070619"
s2 = "115344.51"
s3 = "115445.123456"

ms2 = eval(s2) % 1
mms2 = int(ms2 * 1000000 + 0.5)
ms3 = eval(s3) % 1
mms3 = int(ms3 * 1000000 + 0.5)

s = s1 + s2
d1 = datetime(*strptime(s[:12], "%Y%m%d%H%M%S")[0:6])
d1.replace(microsecond = mms2)
#print d1.microsecond

s = s1 + s3
d2 = datetime(*strptime(s[:12], "%Y%m%d%H%M%S")[0:6])
d2.replace(microsecond = mms3)
#print d2.microsecond

d = d2 - d1
print d.seconds
print d.microseconds

why would d.microseconds be 0 ??

Thanks,
