Format ext HD for use w Time Machine

Want to backup computer to an external HD. Seems that the ext HD must be Mac OS Extended Journaled instead of AFPS, but presently it's AFPS.

Disk Utility (Mojave) offers no way of formatting the ext HD as Mac OS Extended Journaled.

How to get around this??

Select View > Show All Devices from the menu bar.

Then select the drive-icon that appears above the volume-icon on the left side of the DU window and when you opt to erase you will have the options to do so as GUID/Mac OS Extended (Journaled.)
