Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
The format NNNN should be populated with valid values to represent the concept of hours and minutes. The first, second and fourth digits may be represented with values ranging from 0 to 9. The third digit may only be represented with values between 0 and 5.
For example: A value of 9 hours and 59 minutes is a valid response, and would be represented as 0959. However a value of 12 hours and 68 minutes would not be a valid response.
This value domain was previously represented with a format of HHMM.
