Trying to get the time difference from when a sales order was created and when it was shipped. The only function I could get was DateDiff. Is it possible to get the time in the format of “HOUR:MINUTE”?


=DateDiff( 'MINUTE',[SOShipment.ConfirmedDateTime],[SOOrder.CreatedDateTime])*-1

Was thinking of using MOD to achieve what I want as follows

Use this to get hours =DateDiff( 'HOUR', [SOOrder.OrderDate],[ARInvoice.CreatedDateTime],)

And this one to get the minutes.

 DateDiff( 'MINUTE', [SOOrder.OrderDate],[ARInvoice.CreatedDateTime],)%60)


The issue is now on how to combine the two. Will appreciate any suggestions on how to achieve this.

Hi @development93  This can be achieved easily from the SQL VIEW.


Can you please share the GI, so that I can build a SQL view and then create GI accordingly with the HH:MM:SS

@development93 You can also use the Concat() function to get the two differences combined into one field, something like:

=Concat(Cstr(DateDiff('h', [SOOrder.OrderDate], [ARInvoice.CreatedDateTime])+':'+Cstr(DateDiff('n', [SOOrder.OrderDate], [ARInvoice.CreatedDateTime]))

Or did I misunderstand and you just want to SUM them into minutes or hours?
