I have a DateTime Var  that I need to round to the nearest quarter.
7:19 AM, round to 7:15 am,.......Normal rounding rules for time values.
If I need to convert to decimal time, then round, and change back to normal time, not sure how to go about that, if you could help.
Thanks

You could convert the time to minutes then round using a formula like below then convert back to time

Round ( {database.field} / 4, 0 ) * 4

You can also create a formula that tests for intervals in the minutes and rounds the time.

Here is a formula that does it without converting to minutes

If Minute({Sheet1_.Time on}) <= 7 then
    DateTime(Date({Sheet1_.Time on}), Time(Hour({Sheet1_.Time on}),0,0))
Else If Minute({Sheet1_.Time on}) <= 22 then
    DateTime(Date({Sheet1_.Time on}), Time(Hour({Sheet1_.Time on}),15,0))
Else If Minute({Sheet1_.Time on}) <= 37 then
    DateTime(Date({Sheet1_.Time on}), Time(Hour({Sheet1_.Time on}),30,0))
Else If Minute({Sheet1_.Time on}) <= 52 then
    DateTime(Date({Sheet1_.Time on}), Time(Hour({Sheet1_.Time on}),45,0))
Else 
    DateTime(Date({Sheet1_.Time on}), Time(Hour({Sheet1_.Time on}),0,0))

Thanks again- You have been a time-saver for sure for not re-creating the wheel!
I basically used your formulas without converting into my report with small modifications.
Thanks Again-
