Default Merge Switch Question

As the result of a recent upgrade to our company database software I need
to reformat a number of the merge documents that information is pulled into.
When a user sets up an appointment it is done via this software, and part of
this includes the duration of the appointment. Formerly, the software created
a CSV file that showed this as a duration in hours and minuets e.g. 2h 45m
but apparently this was causing problems for some customers and if now just
creates a CSV file containing the duration in minute format, regardless of
duration. Since some of our appointments last a number of hours, its really
not suitable to put in 165 minutes in a letter.

Im using date switches in another part of the letters, but I cant figure
out how to devise a suitable switch to format this number string into a
format where is displays as something like 1h 45mins instead of just the
number of minuets. Im sure there should be a way round this, but I just
cant find it.

Any suggestions would be very helpful.
