    Help formatting time

    Johan Adolfsson


      I am loading a textfile that has a "time_duration" field. Unfortunately all the time data isn't formatted the same way.
      The "time" can be formatted both like "1 min 32 sec" and like just "97" (meaning 97 seconds) .
      How can I handle this in Qlikview? I would like all data in that field to be displayed the same minutes and seconds.

      I have been trying to use time() and time#() without success.

          Could you please post few rows of sample data from the text file?

              Hi Murali!

              Here are some sample data. The data in time_duration field is formatted in two different ways. How can I make it same?
              I have tried time() function with no success. Also tried this...
              //If time_duration string doesn't have "min" in it then convert the data
              if(FindOneOf(time_duration, 'min')=0, Time(Time#(time_duration,'ss'),'hh:mm:ss'), time_duration) as time_duration



              type number time_duration
