Converting Time from 1200p to 12PM

Alteryx Partner

Hi there


I am somewhat new and would like some help in converting a date which is coming through as a string, for example, 1200p to a time format of HH:MM AM/PM. I have been able to convert to hh:mm using the DateTime tool but not able to pick up the AM/PM part of the string.


For clarification 8AM, for example, would come in as 0800a


Any help is appreciated.

How about just using string functions? Try out this formula where [Time] is the input (like "0800a"):


IF Right([Time],1)='p' THEN trimleft(Left([Time],2)+"PM",'0')
ELSE trimleft(Left([Time],2)+"AM",'0') ENDIF
