Can you change SPSS time format to millisecond precision hh:mm:ss.sss (3 decimals instead of 2)?
I want SPSS to display my time as it is originally in a format with milliseconds precision (3 decimals after seconds): hh:mm:ss.sss, but I only see that SPSS only offers hh:mm:ss.ss. So when importing my data into SPSS it transfroms into this 2 decimal format.
Is there any way, in options, an extension, or a macro to change this, to display time in format hh:mm:ss.sss?
The most fine-grained time format is hh:mm:ss.ss, for what I know. But format is only display format, not the actual format. The actual value of any time variable is in seconds, and as such it can have any number of decimal digits. 601.0000, for example, will display as 00:10:01.00 (10 min 1 sec). But you can keep a value, say, 600.000001. It won't be displayed with such fine precision in a time format, but it it will be processed mathematically correctly.
