How to use the Time type and retrieve

I am confused as to how to use the Time type in inserting data in my table.  Currently I have Time as the type and 17:00:00 (hours:min:sec) as the way I am entering but am unable to retrieve it as 5:00 PM.

 I have tried DATE_FORMAT(%H, i%) but it does not seem to work.

 The actual syntax was:
Select example.Name, example.DAY, DATE_FORMAT(example.TIME(%H,%I))
FROM example

and

So I think I am doing everything wrong.  Any help would be appreciated.

syntax is date_format(column_name, 'formatting options')

to get that format you should use '%h:%i %p' as your format options.  BTW if the column is just of TIME type better to use TIME_FORMAT see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/date-and-time-functions.html#function_time-format
