It was my mistake when I explained as to what was required.

drop table tab1 purge;
create table tab1(start_time date, end_time date,machines number);

Insert into TAB1
(start_TIME, end_TIME,machines)
Values
(
TO_DATE('10/01/2014 14:00:00', 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS'),
TO_DATE('10/01/2014 19:30:00', 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS'),2);

commit;

select to_char(start_time,'HH12:MI:SS AM') starttime,
to_char(end_time,'HH12:MI:SS AM') endtime from tab1

Now I want the total drive hours end_time minus start_time ( in the format 5.5)
or 4  hour drive as 4

and the hours has to be divided by 2 and always round it down. This number has to be multiplied by no of machines used to draw. Now I get the capacity.

capacity = (hours /2 ) * machines

select  TRIM(TO_CHAR(TRUNC(((86400*(end_time - start_time))/60)/60)-24*(trunc((((86400*(end_time - start_time))/60)/60)/24)),'00')) ||'.'||
TRIM(TO_CHAR(TRUNC((86400*(end_time - start_time))/60)-60*(trunc(((86400*(end_time - start_time))/60)/60)),'00')) ||'.'  as drive_hours

Tried but did not get correct number.

``````select (((end_time - start_time) * 24) / 2) * machines
from tab1;
``````

btw: what exactly do you expect as result?!

I just need the drive hours in number format. For the example above I need as 5.5

The problem in my calculation is the date part in my database is not correct. If the drive is for today the date part says some day in 2010. So I have to only take hours and minutes in calculation the drive hours.

If you look at the data I am having problem when start time is 3.30 and end time is 7.30 I need am or pm here. That is why (end_time-start_time)*24 drive_hours is not working for me

Think about what the results you are wanting and formulate what you need to do to get the results.

From the last question:
You have the 'hours' and 'minutes'.
Minutes to fractional hours is minutes/60.

You get 5.5 from the first example, simple tweak from the SQL in the last question:
``````select
trim(extract(hour from numtodsinterval(to_date(to_char(end_time,'HH24:MI:SS'),'HH24:MI:SS')-to_date(to_char(start_time,'HH24:MI:SS'),'HH24:MI:SS'),'day'))) ||
case when trim(to_char(extract(minute from numtodsinterval(to_date(to_char(end_time,'HH24:MI:SS'),'HH24:MI:SS')-to_date(to_char(start_time,'HH24:MI:SS'),'HH24:MI:SS'),'day')),'00'))  > 0 then
trim(to_char(extract(minute from numtodsinterval(to_date(to_char(end_time,'HH24:MI:SS'),'HH24:MI:SS')-to_date(to_char(start_time,'HH24:MI:SS'),'HH24:MI:SS'),'day')),'00'))/60
end  mytime
from tab1
/

If your start times and end times are truly date datatypes, then use them to do your date math calculations and only use to_char for purposes of displaying the results. Please post a describe of your table and the results of the following query:

select start_time, to_char(start_time,'DD-MON-YYYY') display_start, end_time, to_char(end_time,'DD-MON-YYYY') display_end
from yourtable;

It's probably better for you to show us exactly what you're dealing with, then we can ask the questions to best determine what you need to do.

awking00,

The data is all messed up.  The columns are date data types but the actual date portion doesn't matter and the start date can be after the end date.

Only the time portion of the column matters.
