Hi,

 

According to your description, i create a sample like this:

After Apply&Close, it shows:

Then try this calculated column:

TimeDuration = 'Table'[Custom]*24

The result shows:

Here is my test pbix file:

Hope this helps.

@Finnair ,Try like a new column

 

New column = hour([Time]) + Minute([Time])/60

No, my time values are in fact durations, so your suggestion is not ok. Thanks anyway.

Try something like below

Time=hour(table[time])+(minute(table[time])/60)

If you are facing any issue related to type use format function to convert it into appropriate one
Thanks
