Format DateDiff Field

Good Afternoon,

  I am pulling Data into an App to show a DateDiff. The Field is pretty tough to read as it is formatted +0000000 00:00:00.00000 . Is there a way I could use ColumnAdd( )and format that field to display better?  This field is being pulled from an Oracle Database as varchars.

Re: Format DateDiff Field

Hi @RichV ,

Do you want to format your varchar field to a better displaying form?

How do you format the “+0000000 00:00:00.00000” value? It will be better if you could give me the formulas or pictures.

Could you describe more clearly about ‘display better’?

I assume that ‘+0000000’ represents date, ’ 00:00:00.00000’ represents time. And make it display better like ’0418 12:00:00’(display the part of +0000000 00:00:00.00000),

You could try this formulas:

        AddColumns('[dbo].[test412]',"fieldname2",Mid(fieldname,5,13))

Here’s a doc about formatting values for your reference:

Sorry I have not responded but have been out sick and forgot about this as other stuff came up when I came back into work. Attched is a Screenshot of the Code with the highlight showing the code. I also attached a Screenshot of some data showing what it looks like.
