Hi all, I am trying to get the boxplot for Time (HH:MM:SS) and day name data but unable to get the required plot. In detail, I would like to get the Boxplot in terms of days, (Monday to Sunday). I have attached the sample data and any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

Hi Cris thanks for your response. I have managed to get box plot using command "boxplot(x,y)" for similar set of data where column A data (please refer to the figure) were the same (x -data) but column B data were numbers. For that I have got the plot (attached here). But now, I am not able to get the boxplot for the time (HH:MM:SS) data. I can easily do the box plot if column B contains numbers or decimals. It is also demonstrated for Matlab 'carsmall" data set as an example. So any help in getting the boxplot for time data (HH:MM:SS) would be highly appreciated.

Yes, with numeric data, you can calculate medians and standard deviations. It looks like your data is a character array, meaning it is text. See Jonas' suggestion below.

i suggest to convert you time (Hour : Minute : Seconds) to seconds using
[~, ~, ~, H, MN, S]=datevec('14:35:22','HH:MM:SS');
MN=MN+60*H;
S=S+MN*60;
then doing you boxplot thing and then converting your boxplot y labels back to a timestring

or the other way around: if you have specific times you want to see, calculates them as seconds, set the values as yticks and then set the ylabels to the times you wanted
