Go to the Column Info for the formula column and select a Format to use. Since there is not a direct format that will just display the Hour component of a time based column, you need to select a "Custom" format. The value you need to specify for the custom format is

`Hour( value )`

I took a different approach. I abandoned time and directly obtained hours. Here is the resulting table:

Here is the formula that I used.

I attached the modified data table for you.

Learn it once, use it forever!

Re: Extract hours to the nearest hours from duration ( hour:min) format

Here is how I do it

```
Names Default To Here( 1 );
time=informat("15:22:00","h:m:s");
show(format(round(time/inhours(1))*3600,"h:m:s"));
time=informat("10:49:00","h:m:s");
show(format(round(time/inhours(1))*3600,"h:m:s"));
```

Re: Extract hours to the nearest hours from duration ( hour:min) format

Thank you

Is there a way to do this without a script? I am not familiar with JMP programming but I run sas programming.

Is not then how to recode this with my actual variable name that is called "hours" and is in duration ( hr:min) formant. I would like to create a col hours1 and extract the hours and do the rounding?

Attached is a data table with a time column and a formula column called Rounded that rounds the hours using the formula

`Round( :Time / In Hours( 1 ) ) * 3600`
