Claus 12-22-2013 8:45:23 PM - 09:11:11 PM

 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

If you have a timetable extracted from a database with some SQL or List(), then useually the times contain the seconds, which are often not significant. This function simply searches the text for the pattern (n)n:nn:nn and if found converts that into (n)n:nn simply by cutting of the last 3 characters.
AM/PM doesn't disturb the function and is disregarded as long as there's a space between it and the seconds.

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