Hi,

Anyone got a simple method for converting decimal time duration to HH:MM.

For example:

1.5 to 1:30
30.75 to 30:45
95.25 to 95:15

etc

Many thanks for any assistance.

Matthew

Hey,

This will do it BUT - You arent getting days in that.

DECLARE @hours decimal(15,4)
SELECT @hours = 28.75
SELECT RIGHT('00' + CONVERT(varchar(2),FLOOR(@hours)),2)
+':'
+ RIGHT('00' + CONVERT(varchar(2),FLOOR(((@hours-FLOOR(@hours))*60))),2)
+':'
+ RIGHT('00' + CONVERT(varchar(2),FLOOR(((@hours-FLOOR(@hours))*60)-FLOOR(((@hours-FLOOR(@hours))*60)))*60),2)



Here's the thread from google. There's another method there too which will get you the full datetime data type too.

declare @time decimal(5,2);
set @time = 95.25;
select cast(@time as int)+(((@time-cast(@time as int))*.60));

Here's my first guess at it; i left lots of stuff in there to look at to help understand it.

With PayRollHours (TheTime)
As
(
SELECT 1.5 UNION ALL
SELECT 30.75 UNION ALL
SELECT 40.00 UNION ALL
SELECT 95.25
)
SELECT DATEADD(minute,TotalMinutesInteger,'1900-01-01') ResultsAsDateTime,
CONVERT(VARCHAR(5),DATEADD(minute,TotalMinutesInteger,'1900-01-01'),108) ResultAsString,
*
FROM (
SELECT TheTime * 60 AS TotalMinutes,
CONVERT(int,TheTime * 60 ) As TotalMinutesInteger,
CONVERT(int,TheTime * 60 ) / 60 As HoursPortion,
CONVERT(int,TheTime * 60 ) %60 As MinutesPortion

FROM PayRollHours
) X

@Cnporteus, yes saw that one, didn't work for high enough hours though.

@Laurie - Thanks for this tweaked it to:

declare @time decimal(5,2);
set @time = 95.75
select replace(cast(convert(decimal(10,2),cast(@time as int)+(((@time-cast(@time as int))*.60))) as varchar),'.',':')



Which seems to work nicely

Thanks a lot.

Even better!

BTW - I left a surplus pair of brackets in - removed below:



select replace(cast(convert(decimal(10,2),cast(@time as int)+((@time-cast(@time as int))*.60)) as varchar),'.',':')
