Help - Trying to compare to Time fields
OK - I hope that was the missing link.

I also think I was using the wrong value for the variable driver timer field that I use to set the "change filter" time with. Originally I was trying to use enoch time and then divide the results by 10,000,000 to get seconds. I don't think that was giving me the desired number. So I simplied things by calculating the number of seconds there are in 300 hours (1080000) and then getting the hex value of that number (107ac0). I took out the dividing by 10,000,000 command as well.

On the actual run timer field, I still divide by 10,000,000 to get the number of seconds passed since the timer started.

Using the Greater Than or Equal command now gives a result that I would expect. The current run timer value is drastically smaller than the "Change Filter" time - which it should be at this point since the filters were only changed a couple of days ago.

So I'll call this problem solved. At least for the time being. I'll see how long it really takes for the system to tell me to actually change the filter. That shouldn't occur for at least several months.

Thanks for all the help Dean!
