How is time represented in Statistica data files?

Time values of variables are stored as (optional) decimal values representing the fraction of the day since midnight; for example, 6:00 A.M. is stored as 0.25. Time values stored in this manner can be used in subsequent analyses and transformed using arithmetic operations; at the same time, they can be displayed as times in reports or graphs (e.g., used to label scale values).

To specify the time format for reports or graphs, access the Variable specification dialog box (double-click on a variable header), and in the Display format box, select Time.


See How are dates represented in STATISTICA data files? for a discussion of the Auto Format Cells and the Date Operations dialog boxes.
