5.02341435185185

      select to_char(trunc(sysdate)+ 5.02341435185185,'hh24:mi')
 from dual;

I think I am good with the previous solution. Instead of converting further, I am diplaying the first value of 120:33 . Will make further tests and let you know. Thanks.

####:20  --- this means the result was 4 digits, i.e.  > 999 hours

if you need to display a results that large
change

this:   to_char(floor((sysdate -bleed_end_time)*24),'fm009')


to:   to_char(floor((sysdate -bleed_end_time)*24),'fm0009')

you can keep adding 0s to the format to expand as needed.



I'm not sure what you were trying to say in http:#a37739663
