return date from a text box

Is there a way to interpret a date and time in a specific location and store it to memory? I will call that time later and add two minutes (example) to it and enter that new time in a different location.

    More info on what I'm trying to do:

    I need to highlight text within a textbox and save it as a value (StartTimeValue).
    Then have eggPlant recognize that value as a time format.
    Convert the time into abbreviated time.
    Add 1 minute to StartTimeValue and store new time as EndTimeValue.
    Highlight text in a different textbox.
    Enter new EndTimeValue.

    Below is my psuedoscript:

    Click "StartTime"
    Save text as StartTimeValue
    Convert text from StartTimeValue to abbreviated time
    StartTimeValue + 1 minute, save as EndTimeValue
    Click "EndTime"
    TypeText EndTimeValue

    Please help. I found nothing on how to do this in Working with Times and Dates. Thanks.

    i decided to use variables to store the actual time, instead of using text and trying to convert it to time.

    put abbreviated time + 4 hours into StartTimeValue_One
    put StartTimeValue_One + 2 minutes into EndTimeValue_One
    put EndTimeValue_One + 1 second into StartTimeValue_Two
    put StartTimeValue_Two + 2 minutes into EndTimeValue_Two
