Show value as days and hours and aggregate

So i'm trying to display the below value in the format "x days, y hours" but when i change the format, it does not aggregate being a text output. Has anyone worked on this? Can we have the value in the background but still display as human readable format of days and hours.

Thankyou @amitchandak for your suggestions.  I have now tried this out. Only challenge now is the fractional day doesnt get converted to hours, but only shows as fractional hours. 
so 0.83 days i am expecting it to convert to 20 hours. 


The other alternative I tried was splitting hours in days and hours 

var days = INT(total_hours/24)
var hours = MOD(total_hours,24)/100 and adding them up to show the correct days and hours. However as expected they wouldnt add up to the totals. 



Hi @lalTel20 ,


What's your data model? Can you provide me with some dummy data and expected results?

Current outcome - 


need to update the days value from decimal format such as 6.375 days --> 6 days 9 Hrs 


Hi @lalTel20 ,


Sorry for my late reply.

Below is how I show you how to display the change from 6.375 days to 6 days 9 Hrs.

First, create a calculated column as follows.

DATEDIFF is to get the hours of the time difference. Divide the number of hours calculated by 24 to get the number of days, and then multiply by 100 plus the remainder of the number of hours divided by 24.

For example, _hours=153 → 609

DayHours = var _hour=DATEDIFF([Start Duration],[End Duration],HOUR)
return INT(DIVIDE(_hour,24))*100+MOD(_hour,24)/100

And then create a custom format like


Now, "609" is changed to "6Days09Hrs".


"None" should be seleceted in Display units.
