Hi all.If I've got a query which has a field with seconds in it... how will I usethe Convert function to get my field converted to the format: HH:MM:SS ?The field with the seconds in is called: "Diff"Thanks alotRudi

In BIDS, I created a time dimension using the wizard. Unfortunately, the template used by the wizard does not contain Hours, Minutes and Seconds; so, I added them using the designer. Now, when I try to build, deploy and process I get the error: Unable to find matching TimeAttributeType. Cannot anyone explain why this is happening and what can be done about? Is there a template available somewhere that does create time dimensions with time and not just dates?

I found in another forum that if I take the seconds and divide them by 15 then round up and multiply them by 4 I can get this done, but I can't figure out how to work it into my select statement. Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated. dbo.SLPTRANS.TimeSpent is the field I am trying to convert.

SELECT dbo.SLPTRANS.ClientID, SUM(dbo.SLPTRANS.TransValue) AS Expr1, dbo.SLPTRANS.TimeSpent AS Expr2 FROM dbo.SLPTRANS INNER JOIN dbo.INVOICE ON dbo.SLPTRANS.InvoiceID = dbo.INVOICE.RecordID GROUP BY dbo.SLPTRANS.ClientID HAVING (dbo.SLPTRANS.ClientID = 405)

I have written a function that returns the number of Days, Hours and minutes from a given number of minutes. On testinf the results are close but not quite there. Can anyone see where I have gone wrong or is there an easier way of doing this? Code is as follows:

CREATE FUNCTION dbo.GetTimeBetweenLong (@StartTime DateTime, @EndTime DateTime, @CurrentDate DateTime) RETURNS VarChar(50) AS BEGIN DECLARE @TotalTime Numeric DECLARE @Minutes Numeric DECLARE @Hours Numeric DECLARE @Days Numeric DECLARE @MinutesInDays Numeric

IF @EndTime IS NULL BEGIN SET @Days = DATEDIFF(Day, @StartTime, @CurrentDate) SET @Hours = DATEDIFF(Hour, @StartTime, @CurrentDate) - (@Days * 24) SET @Minutes = DATEDIFF(Minute, @StartTime, @CurrentDate) - ((@Days * 24)*60) - (@Hours * 60) END ELSE BEGIN SET @Days = DATEDIFF(Day, @StartTime, @EndTime) SET @Hours = DATEDIFF(Hour, @StartTime, @EndTime) - (@Days * 24) SET @Minutes = DATEDIFF(Minute, @StartTime, @EndTime) - ((@Days * 24)*60) - (@Hours * 60) END

IF(@Days <0) BEGIN SET @Days = @Days - @Days - @Days END

IF (@Hours < 0) BEGIN SET @Hours = @Hours - @Hours - @Hours END

IF (@Minutes <0) BEGIN SET @Minutes = @Minutes - @Minutes - @Minutes END

I need to be able to add minutes to a datetime value, which only cover working hours.

I have a holiday table as below:

Examples: (dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm) Date..........Description 01/01/2015 New Years Day 26/12/2014 Boxing Day 25/12/2014 Christmas Day 25/08/2014 August Bank Holiday

Our Business hours are 08:00-18:00 Mon-Fri (unless the day is in the holiday table)

I have tried to create a function to do this (fn_pp_AddMinutesWithinWorkingHours(@StartDate,@Minutes)) but I am unable to come up with a solution which factors in everything correctly.

Hello, I have this expression DATEDIFF(HOUR, startdate,enddate) which only shows the hours. I need to show the hours and minutes too , exp. 9.17. Any way to convert the expression to do this. The startdate and enddate fields are mm/dd/yyy hh:mms. I am using report builder.

IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.objects WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[table_Data]') AND type in (N'U')) DROP TABLE [dbo].[table_Data] GO /****** Object: Table [dbo].[table_Data] Script Date: 04/21/2015 22:07:49 ******/ SET ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.objects WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[table_Data]') AND type in (N'U'))

I have a result that comes out in number of seconds, but need to see it converted to minutes and hours and seconds. Is there a convert function that would do this?

I have a field in nvarchar type. It contains data like 0, :23, 1:57, ... all in minutes and seconds. Now, I need to convert it to MM:SS using query and get the Average of this column. How can I do it? I have tried Avg(Convert(nvarchar(20), [Calling Time], 108)) .. but I got error : The average aggregate operation cannot take a nvarchar data type as an argument.Help!!!! :(

I have a field with seconds in it and I need to disply it in hours which I can do by dividing it by 3600, but I am trying to figure out how to round it up to the nearest 15 minutes. I have tried a couple of things with ROUND and CEILING, but am not getting the right numbers back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a column of data that is the number of seconds. I need to format this column into the HH:MMS format. If there are 130 seconds the second column should read 00:02:10. How can I accomplish this in report builder or is it even possible in Report builder? I can use the following formula in SQL but is there a way to do it in Report Builder?

can any one tell me how to change seconds to minutes by using if condition in rss...

for example i have value of seconds=50, minutes should come like this 50/60=0.833333.... i got the answer ... but the problem is how to roundoff or truncate the minutes to 0.83 or 0.84 from 0.8333333...

I have two field and I need to find the sum I guess of them. One is called the clm_dout (process date) and the other one is clm_rcvd (received Date). These are both date and time fields and it looks like this 2006-03-17 00:00:00.000. I need to create a formula that wiil i guess give me the difference and create it into hour and minutes because I an trying to create a turn around report. this is what I had...

TimeValue({clm_doubt}-{clm_rcvd})

This is not working for me. Can someone give me a suggestion please.

Hi Can anyone help me convert a number to give the result in hours and minutes? For example 195 as 3:15 or 210 as 3:30. We are trying to create a report showing hours and minutes worked without having to export to Excel.

I've had a look around the net and this seems to be quite a difficult function in SQL Server.

guys - is this a decent query to pull all columns (dateCreate) that have a timestamp less than five minutes? i know its simple, but i've never done a date compare with minutes or hours in sql server thanks rik:o

select top 10 * from ptpuritm where datediff(MINUTE,dateCreate,getdate()) <=5

select top 10 * from ptpuritm where datediff(MINUTE,dateCreate,current_timestamp) <=5

I am trying to get this to work - but it only returns minutes & seconds:

Function Seconds2mmss(ByVal seconds As Integer) As String Dim ss As Integer = seconds Mod 60 Dim mm As Integer = (seconds - ss) / 60 Seconds2mmss = String.Format("{0:0}:{1:00}", mm, ss) End Function

Can anyone help me out? I am not that familiar with VB.

Hello friends what is the right datatype to store the hours and minutes part in the database? i found some info which says we have to convert the duration(hrs and min) into minutes and then store is it the right approach? Regards Sara

I need to ignore the hours minutes and seconds elements of a datetime field - I've got a way of doing this in my select statement but it seems to be this can't be the most efficient way!

CONVERT(datetime, CONVERT(nchar(10), db.tab.field, 101)) AS date_key

I have a problem formatting a field in Reporting Services (minutes to hours).

I have a field called duration which stores time in whole minutes only. I can format this into hours within mssql using the following:

cast(sn.duration/60 as varchar(5)) + ':' + RIGHT('0' + cast(sn.duration%60 as varchar(2)), 2)

But I need to have totals and average columns in my report, which means that the data must come through to RS in the minutes format so I can perform the calculations there.

I am trying to convert hours and minutes to decimal and arrive at a sum of time taken. The column TotalTimeSpent is the diff in hours/mins between the Started and Ended times.

SELECT DATENAME(weekday, Started) AS Day, C.Category, ClientCode,Description, dbo.FormatDateTime(Started, 'HH:MMS 12') as Started, dbo.FormatDateTime(Ended, 'HH:MMS 12') as Ended, CONVERT(varchar,TimeTaken,108) AS TotalTimeSpentFROM dbo.Journal JLEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.Categories C ON J.CategoryID = C.CategoryIDWHERE--DATENAME(weekday, Started) =@Weekday AND Started >= @StartDate ORDER BY Day, Category, Started
