Engage Hours per day = ([Start]-[End])

Hi @HenryJS ,

 

You could use Time.Hour() in query editor.

if [Start]>[End] then
24-Time.Hour([Start])+Time.Hour([End])
else Time.Hour([End])-Time.Hour([Start])

Here is the result.

@HenryJS try this expression

 

Column = DATEDIFF ( [Column1], [Column2], HOUR)

@parry2k unfortunately that didn't work, please see below

@HenryJS , The formula of @parry2k  will give the whole number. Not time.

You can do like

time([Date diff],0,0)

@amitchandak @parry2k how do I get the time?

@HenryJS , That is what your initial formula was doing ? was it a measure or column?

@amitchandak @parry2k I have two columns 'Start' and 'End' both 'Time' data type.

 

I need a new column which calculates the hours difference between the start and end times.

 

Is this possible?

@HenryJS we already gave you a solution, why you are asking the same question. Can you add a new column based on the expression I posted.

 

Your existing column has a time format because your original calculation was [Start] - [End] which returned time.

@parry2k  20:00pm - 05:00am should be a duration of 09:00 hours

@HenryJS you have to add a date identifier to make it happen because simple time doesn't know if it is the same date or future date.

@HenryJS you should keep the type of this new column to be a whole number, not time and I guess that is the issue. And as a best practice, always use table name with the columns in the DAX expression, not just column name and for measures never use the table name.
