Turning hour as number into time

Hello

 

I have data where the hours are numbered 1-24 and stored as whole numbers

 

I would like to convert these to actual times s0 00:00, 01:00, 02:00 etc  and then add them to my date column to create a datetime.

 

I;ve tried used #duration and subtracting -1 from Hour but I get 00:00 as the time for every hour, regardless of which one it was originally.

 

 

Where am I going wrong?

Without your code it is hard to say where you went wrong.

 

This is working code:

 

let
    Source = Table.FromColumns({{1..24},List.Dates(#date(2017,6,9),24,#duration(1,0,0,0))},type table[hours = Int64.Type, date = date]),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(Source, "time", each #time(0,0,0)+#duration(0,[hours]-1,0,0)),
    #"Inserted Merged Date and Time" = Table.AddColumn(#"Added Custom", "datetime", each [date] & [time], type datetime)
in
    #"Inserted Merged Date and Time"
