Description:

When a time is combined into a calc with other text, the result needs to be text. As such, you cannot use FileMaker's built-in layout time formatting to properly format the time in a layout field object. The default is for FMP to show time in a 24-hour format. This function provides a simple means of always showing the time in a 12-hour format.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I've been searching the Filemaker Tech site for an answer to show the time value in a Variable without showing seconds. I couldn't find an answer until I stumbled accross you custom function. It was perfect.
