I have a pervasive database with a time field that is in numeric value

13070614 = 1:07:06 pm and 14 milliseconds
9163401= 9:16:34 am and 01 milliseconds

I only need the hour and minute.

Can someone help me with a formula to convert to time for this?

StringVar sMyTime := ToText({your_numeric_column}, 0, "");

IF Len(sMyTime) = 8 Then
    cTime(sMyTime[1 to 2] & ":" & sMyTime[3 to 4] & ":" & sMyTime[5 to 6])
Else
    cTime(sMyTime[1] & ":" & sMyTime[2 to 3] & ":" & sMyTime[4 to 5]);

I'm trying, I really am. But I've seen so many wrong approaches involving date(time) boundaries I despair about my inability to explain it. I've seen quite a few recently that define a non-leap year as 364 days, or 366 days and the list goes on. …
