    The format to use is CTimeSpan as this relates to a period of time rather than CTime with represents an absolute time/date.

    CTimeSpan ts(2500);
    CString	s = ts.Format( "Total days: %D, hours: %H, mins: %M, secs: %S" );
    As you already have the value in seconds, then this can be used directly in the CTimeSpan constructor.

    You can also do it like this

    CTimeSpan cts;
    CString s;
    	cts = 2500;
    	s = cts.Format( "Total days: %D, hours: %H, mins: %M, secs: %S" );
