Subj:   Re: Convert time from twenty four hour to twelve hour format
From:   Fred W Pluebell

TIME and CURRENT_TIME(n) seem similar in that they both return some "time of day" value, but as you discovered they are not interchangeable.

The data type returned by the old built-in function TIME is actually FLOAT. CURRENT_TIME or CURRENT_TIME(0) returns type TIME(0) WITH TIME ZONE.

(By contrast, DATE and CURRENT_DATE both return a type of DATE.)
