How to convert time column to from HH:MM:SS to minutes and seconds?

6 views (last 30 days)
I have a doubt , I want to convert Time column ( HH:MM:SS) to min, there is a direct command time2num but it requires toolbox and it's paid.So without using time2num how can I convert into minutes. I tried with datetime also but I got error.
table=readtable('sample.csv'):
times = datetime(table.Time,'InputFormat','HH:mm:ss:SSS');
times = hour(times).*60 + minute(times) + second(times)./60;

% table=readtable('sample.csv'):
A=readtable('sample.csv') % table is a function name in matlab

class(A.Time) % A.Time is duration and it is not the time
ans = 'duration'
%times = datetime(A.Time,'InputFormat','HH:mm:ss:SSS')
% times = hour(times).*60 + minute(times) + second(times)./60;
% you are finding minutes from A.Time
t_minutes = minutes(A.Time)
t_minutes = 621×1
