Generates time values from three inputs of Integer type: hour, minute, and second.

  • Source values can be Integer literals or column references to values that can be inferred as Integers.
  • If any of the source values are invalid or out of range, a missing value is returned.
  • This function must be nested within another function that accepts date values as arguments. See the example below.

Basic Usage

Integer literal values:

derive value: DATEFORMAT(TIME(23,58,59),'HH mm ss')

Output: Generates a column of values containing the map: 

23 58 59

Column reference values:

derive value: DATEFORMAT(TIME(myHour, myMinute, mySecond), 'hh-mm-ss')

Output: Generates a column of values where:

  • hh = values from myHour column
  • mm = values from myMinute column
  • ss = values from mySecond column

Syntax

derive value:DATEFORMAT(TIME(hour_integer_col,minute_integer_col,second_integer_col),'time_format_string')

ArgumentRequired?Data TypeDescription
hour_integer_colYintegerName of column or Integer literal representing the hour value to apply to the function
minute_integer_colYintegerName of column or Integer literal representing the minute value to apply to the function
second_integer_colYintegerName of column or Integer literal representing the second value to apply to the function
time_format_stringYstringString literal identifying the time format to apply to the value

For more information on syntax standards, see Language Documentation Syntax Notes.

hour_integer_col

Integer literal or name of the column containing integer values for the hour. Values must integers between 0 and 23, inclusive.

  • Missing values for this function in the source data result in missing values in the output.
  • Multiple columns and wildcards are not supported.

Usage Notes:

 

Required?Data TypeExample Value
YesInteger (literal or column reference)15

minute_integer_col

Integer literal or name of the column containing integer values for the minutes. Values must integers between 0 and 59, inclusive.

  • Missing values for this function in the source data result in missing values in the output.
  • Multiple columns and wildcards are not supported.

Usage Notes:

Required?Data TypeExample Value
YesInteger (literal or column reference)23

second_integer_col

Integer literal or name of the column containing integer values for the second. Values must integers between 0 and 59, inclusive.

  • Missing values for this function in the source data result in missing values in the output.
  • Multiple columns and wildcards are not supported.

Usage Notes:

Required?Data TypeExample Value
YesInteger (literal or column reference)45

Examples

Example - date and time functions 

This example illustrates how the DATE and TIME functions operate. Both functions require that their outputs be formatted properly using the DATEFORMAT function.

  • DATE - Generates valid Datetime values from three integer inputs: year, month, and day. See DATE Function.
  • TIME - Generates valid Datetime values from three integer inputs: hour, minute, and second. See TIME Function.
  • DATETIME - Generates valid Datetime values from six integer inputs: year, month, day, hour, minute, and second. See DATETIME Function.
  • DATEFORMAT - Formats valid Datetime values according to the provided formatting string. See DATEFORMAT Function.

Source:

yearmonthdayhourminutesecond
20161011230
20151120152230
20141225183045

Transform:

derive value: DATEFORMAT(DATE (year, month, day),'yyyy-MM-dd') as:'fctn_date'

derive value: DATEFORMAT(TIME (hour, minute, second),'HH-mm-ss') as:'fctn_time'

derive value: DATEFORMAT(DATETIME (year, month, day, hour, minute, second),'yyyy-MM-dd-HH:mm:ss') as:'fctn_datetime'


Results:

NOTE: All inputs must be inferred as Integer type and must be valid values for the specified input. For example, month values must be integers between 1 and 12, inclusive.

You can apply other date and time functions to the generated columns.
