Approach v.9 - Help with Formula

Approach v.9 - Help with Formula

Approach v.9 - Help with Formula

Hello everyone,  

I am a novice developer in need of assistance.  I need a formula to covert decimal hours and minutes into real (analogue?) hours and minutes.  For example 2.5 hours should read 2:30 minutes, and 1.75 hours should read 1:45.  If anyone knows how to do this, I'd really appreciate it if you'd let me know.

RE: Approach v.9 - Help with Formula

Example: 2.5 hours in field named DHR

Assuming you might have no hours, but something like DHR = .5, you need to check for these things! Some calculated fields would do this for you:

DP = Position(DHR,'.',1)
Hours = If(DP < 1,DHR,If(DP = 1,0,Left(DHR,DP - 1)))
DecMin = If(DP < 1,0,Right(DHR,Length(DHR) - DP)))
AnaMin = Trunc(60 * DecMin)
AnaSec = (60 * DecMin) - AnaMin

CalcTime = Time(Hours,AnaMin,AnaSec)
