If I have a table name time_hrs that contains the hour value in integer format i.e 7,8,9,10...etc Is there a dynamic query that can convert take the value of the table - the current time and convert the result into minutes?

This is for informix.

I can almost get you there:


select   datetime(time_hrs.column_name|":00") hour to minute - extend(current, hour to minute)


This will give you an hour to minute datetime variable, but I can't find any commands that return an integer number of minutes from a datetime.  Can you do that in the client instead?  Why do you need to do it?
