Converting datenums to get time durations

I need the time durations that the component is in operation, above a certain height. The time is in 24 hour time. So essentially I want to end up with a matrix with one column that has the component ID and another column with time durations for each component. Any advice?
% Load excel
CompID = data(:,1);
Date = data(:,8);
Height = data(:,10)
%% Converting datenum to datetime
Date = datetime(Date,'ConvertFrom','yyyymmddHHSS');
H = 3;
i = WaveHeight>H;
ThreshH = Height(i);
ThreshDate = Date(i);
ThreshID = CompID(i);

I don't see where WaveHeight is declared, but you can calculate a duration by subtracting datetimes.
ThreshDate = datetime('now');
newDate = datetime('now');
dur = newDate-ThreshDate
dur = duration
To get the answer in seconds (similarly for minutes or hours):
converted = seconds(dur)
converted = 1.0100
