I have a formula field which calculates a number value perfectly but I'd like to add a letter to the front of the number so I assume that means I need to cast my result to a string. Here is my formula right now: SELECT MAX(Clean_Job) FROM tbl_ggl_job WHERE Job_Letter = 'CC') + 1 Which gets the max job number that is currently in use and adds 1 to that. So if the max job is CC100 this would return 101. I'd like to concatenate this with the Job Letter CC so that the result would look like CC101. How can I do this?
Hello, I'm having difficulty with my time formula for a specific scenario. It is working correctly but producing too much time in some instances. I'm using a calculated field with the following formula to find the total time worked each day: cast (Datediff(hour, [@field:Start_TIme], [@field:End_Time])%24 as varchar)+' hours,'+ cast (Datediff(minute, [@field:Start_Time], [@field:End_Time])%60 as varchar)+ ' minutes' The formula is working when: The time calculated is more than an hour (i.e. 2:00 PM to 4:45 PM) = 2hrs, 45 minutes (CORRECT RESULT) or The time calculated is less than an hour but within the same hour of the day (i.e. 2:00 PM to 2:23 PM) = 0hrs, 23 minutes (CORRECT RESULT) The formula is NOT working when: The time calculated is less than an hour across DIFFERENT hours (i.e. 2:50PM - 3:05PM) = 1hrs, 15 minutes (INCORRECT RESULT) The hour should be '0' as the total time worked is '15' minutes only. I'm not sure if I can build a condition into the already existing formula(s) or if a new formula(s) is required. The standard datediff function also produces the same result. I've tried other code located online but have not been successful at removing the hour that appears in error. I've searched the CASPIO forum but was not able to locate a like issue. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!
