Yes because the units are not seconds for example 1337 is not in seconds units it is 49020 seconds.

210 data _null_; 211 a=1224; 212 b=1337; 213 c = b - a; 214 aT = input(put(a/1e2,5.2),time.); 215 bT = input(put(b/1e2,5.2),time.); 216 dT = bT - aT; 217 dM = dT / 60; 218 put 'NOTE: Results' @; 219 put (_all_)(/= 'NOTE- '); 220 221 *format aT bT time. dt mmss.; 222 run;

NOTE: Results a=1224 b=1337 c=113 *** this is not 73 as it should be; aT=44640 bT=49020 dT=4380 dM=73
