Any suggestions?

Cheers.

Hi @Onjai,

I'm sure there are other ways to approach this, but I've had luck with the following when I've needed to do that (this requires that you have a numeric :DateTime column):

`Round(:DateTime / 60) * 60`

(Edited: replaced with the simpler formula pointed out by Jerry)

Hope this helps!

I am using the latest version of JMP. The transform worked as well.

Thank you!

Re: Column formula to round timestamp to nearest minute

Hi Onjai,

If you're using version 14, you can right-click the heading of your Timestamp column, select New Formula Column->Transform->Round. You'll then get a dialog box to set the desired parameters (because you're wanting to round to the nearest minute, you'll just need to select "Nearest" from the dropdown and click OK). This is the resulting formula:

Round(:Timestamp / 60) * 60

Re: Column formula to round timestamp to nearest minute

`:Time Stamp - Modulo( :Time Stamp, 60 );`

Learn it once, use it forever!
