Hello everyone, I have a question about inserting dynamic table with time values. Here is example of the table that I have to insert in db:
|Schedule for 10/05/2016|
|09:30 AM - 10:00 AM||Remove|
|10:00 AM - 10:30 AM||Remove|
|10:30 AM - 11:00 AM||Remove|
|11:00 AM - 11:30 AM||Remove|
|11:30 AM - 12:00 PM||Remove|
|05:00 PM - 05:30 PM||Remove|
|05:30 PM - 06:00 PM||Remove|
|06:00 PM - 06:30 PM||Remove|
|06:30 PM - 07:00 PM||Remove|
I do not have a problem to insert values if my time difference in always the same. Like first few time slots are increased for 30 min but then I have a gap from 12:00pm all the way until 5:00pm. My problem is there. I do not know what is the best way to save these values. Since values are created dynamically and all of them are under the same date. If I do not have time breaks that would be really easy but in this case where I have time gap looks really complicated. If anyone can tell me what si the best way to store this in database please let me know. Thanks in advance.
My suggestion is, don't save schedules in the database. Save the data in the two datetime columns startTime and endTime.
I have that already and is not what I need. Because if I just have stored start,end time and interval value I only can make equal time differences. What is I have 2 hours break in between time intervals?

I don't understand what you mean. In any case, here is a dynamic example:
<cfset t1_meridiem = getMeridiem(t1)>
<cfset t2_meridiem = getMeridiem(t2)>
<!--- time in 12-hour format; note the lower-case letters --->
<cfoutput>#timeFormat(t1,"hh:mm")# #t1_meridiem#-#timeFormat(t2,"hh:mm")# #t2_meridiem#</cfoutput>
<cfargument name="t" default="#now()#" required="true" type="date">
<!--- time in 24-hour format; note the capital letters --->
<cfset var time24 = timeFormat(t,"HH:MM")>
<cfset var hour24 = listFirst(time24, ":")>
<cfif hour24 LTE 11>
