Re: How to convert text format Numbers to yyyymmdd hh:mm format?

Here is the formula for the conversion

Date DMY(
	Num( Substr( :date, 7, 2 ) ),
	Num( Substr( :date, 5, 2 ) ),
	Num( Substr( :date, 1, 4 ) ) ) + 
	60 * 60 * Num( Word( 2, :date, " :" ) ) + 
	60 * Num( Word( -1, :date, " :" ) )

@txnelson's formula will work but there's a slightly simpler formula that will work also.

This one uses Informat() to convert the date and time values. 

 

 

Informat( Word( 1, :Column 1 ) ) +Informat( Word( 2, :Column 1 ), "h:m" )

Your question is vague. Please give an example of what the input values looks like, and what you want the output value to be...….

Re: How to convert text format Numbers to yyyymmdd hh:mm format?

The Format() function is used to convert a JMP date, time or datetime value to a text string.

 

For example:

 

x=informat("20000214");

show(format(x, "m/d/y"));

show(format(x, "d/m/y"));

show(format(x, "Date Long"));

show(format(x, "Monddyyyy"));

Results in this in the log:

 

Format(x, "m/d/y") = "02/14/2000";
Format(x, "d/m/y") = "14/02/2000";
Format(x, "Date Long") = "Monday, February 14, 2000";
Format(x, "Monddyyyy") = "Feb142000";

That's the style,Thanks!

The effect is the same:
format(x, "y/m/d")  ————    format(x, "yyyyymmdd")
