Change Minutes to Hours, Minutes

8 - Asteroid

We have employees tracking some work they are currently working on.  Right now, we have them calculating time spent in minutes.  They are tracking this in SharePoint, which is saving the data as a number.


Management wants an accumlated total of hours/minutes spent on these projects. This information will be growing daily.


Any way to show the ongoing total as HH:MM?

A formula like:

PadLeft(ToString(Floor(TotalMinutes/60), 0), 2, '0') +
":" + PadLeft(ToString(Mod(TotalMinutes, 60), 0), 2, '0')

Should give you what you want.

I just saw that @jdunkerley79 answered too.  I can't wait to see his solution too.

Thanks MarqueeCrew !

I re-used it.


I simply modified the last calculation (Time) to avoid having results like 5:7 when you probably expect 5:07

My code:


If length([Minutes])>1
THEN tostring([Hours],0,1)+":"+ToString([Minutes])
ELSE tostring([Hours],0,1)+":0"+ToString([Minutes])

Hope it will help.
