Converting a total number to hours/minutes

Question

Hello.  I have an aggregate function on a datapage to sum up all minutes keyed into a number field.  I need to figure out how to convert that total number into hours/minutes.  For example if the total number is 75 minutes I can divide that by 60 and get 1.25 but I'd rather it say 1.15 or 1 hour and 15 minutes.  Thanks for any help.

Hello @Joemac,

1) You may test this formula:

CAST( CAST((SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) AS int) / 60 AS nvarchar) + ':'  + right('00' + CAST(CAST((SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) AS int) % 60 AS nvarchar(2)),2) + ' Hrs' 


The output is, for example: 

0:20 Hrs 

1:25 Hrs

Please replace field_name and Table_name with your local names.

2) Another option is:

CASE 

WHEN (SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) < 60

THEN CAST((SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) as nvarchar) + ' minutes'

WHEN (SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) >= 60 AND (SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) <1440

THEN CAST( CAST((SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) AS int) / 60 AS nvarchar) + ' hours '  + right('00' + CAST(CAST((SELECT SUM(field_name) FROM Table_name) AS int) % 60 AS nvarchar(2)),2) + ' minutes' 

END


The output is, for example: 

50 minutes

3 hours 05 minutes

 

Hope this helps.

Hi @Joemac,

I am sorry for the late reply.

As far as I know,  custom formulas are not applicable for Subtotals (applicable only for Totals :( )

This is why you see the same result as Total and as Subtotals. This is the expected behavior at the moment. 

As an option, you may suggest new features  here http://ideabox.caspio.com/
