sorry but your question is not completely clear.
Could you perhaps explain in what format the entries are in the database (and which database), and how you try to convert them afterwards?
You get a datetime but you want your field to be a time, am I right? Your best bet is to use Nominal to Date and use hh:mm as your date format, because you do not care about the date.
All the best,
