Using DATEDIFF to calculate (hh:mm)

I am trying to find the difference in time down to the hour and minute. Here is an example of some of the data.





I cant seem to write a DAX statement that allows me to output the hours and minutes elapsed between the two columns. One problem I am running into with the HOUR feature is that it maxes at 23 hours. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @cmiller1221 

try smth like

Column = 
var diff = VALUE([ResolvedDate] - [DiscoveredDate])
var h = ROUNDDOWN(24 * diff, 0)
var m = ROUNDDOWN(60* (24 * diff - h), 0)
h & "h " & m & "m"

Re: Using DATEDIFF to calculate (hh:mm)

@cmiller1221 , you date diff between

Date1 - Date2 = it will be in time, more than 24 hours will in day


if you try datediff(Date1,Date2,Minute), You need convert into hours and minute using Mod and quotient and display as text
