Adding Date And Time Fields

From an outside source, a date is brought into one cell, and time is brought into another. Is there a way to combine them into one cell with the format of m/d/yyyy h:mm?

I tried concatenate, but that did not work.

Skip Weekends Adding Time To Date & Time
I need a formula to add just the time to ' date and time', ignoring weekends.


Fri 24-Aug-07 10:52 is the date and time

28:48:00 is the time

If I add the time to 'date and time', result is coming as Sat 25-Aug-07 15:40

But it should come as Mon 27-Aug-07 15:40 (hence ignoring weekend)

I have a problem concatenating time in excel if it is of Date + Time format..
What formula do I use to just add the time by, say, 3 hours? I'll need to use, say cell B2, which will add 3 hours to it.. What formula do I use?

Adding An Updated/revised Date/time On The End Of Row.

Adding Time To A Date Excluding Weekends And Holidays
I've been reading up on Excel's date and time functions and can't really figure out the best way of doing this.

I have a total amount of time that a machine should take to finish a task. I'd like to enter a date and time into a cell (Start Date) and have another cell return the date and time that the machine should be done with the task excluding weekends, and holidays (End Date). This would be based on a certain number of "working hours" (hours in the workday minus break periods) that would be calculated in another cell.

Adding Years, Days, Months To Date/time Format
I have some cells which must be in the format 15/06/2007 15:25

I then need to add either days, months or years onto it.

Say the above date/time is in cell A1, when I do =YEAR(A1)+5 it displays 2012 if I choose the general cell format, but when I select the same cell format (date time) it comes out as 04/07/1905 00:00

Date/Time Formula: Pick Up A Date With Time Entry On A Worksheet And Place It Into A TextBox On A UserForm
I am attempting to pick up a date with time entry on a worksheet and place it into a TextBox on a UserForm. Format on the sheet is mm/dd/yyyy h:mm AM/PM. The UserForm is placing the value as mm/dd/yyyy 12:00 AM. here is the

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
If Not Range("dDate").Value = "" Then
TextBox2.Value = Range("dDate").Value
TextBox2.Text = Format(DateValue(TextBox2.Text), "mm/dd/yy h:mm AM/PM")
TextBox2.Value = ""
End If
End Sub

"dDate" is the named range where the date is sitting. The format is also set on the TextBox2 exit event. Can anyone see why only the date portion is being transfered with the default 12:00 AM for no time component of the value?

Adding A Time Offset Based On Time Of Day
I am replicating a Matlab program which calculates tide levels at different times of day. I need to replicate it in excel to speed up data analysis and I am nearly there.

what happens is I need to apply a time offset to the time of high tide at port a based on the time of day, so if it is:

between 00:00 and 06:00 the high tide at port b is 81.6 minutes after the peak at port a
between 06:00 and 12:00 the high tide at port b is 74.56 minutes after the peak at port a
between 12:00 and 18:00 the high tide at port b is 81.75 minutes after the peak at port a
between 06:00 and 12:00 the high tide at port b is 79minutes after the peak at port a

I tried this formula, where CO2 has the time/date of the high tide at port a:

The problem is the high tide on 07/01/2005 07:45 is read as 38359.32 rather than 0.32 - is there any easy way to tell excel I'm only interested in the time not the date? I have this spreadsheet setup now to do all the other bits required and i is just the timing that is a problem.

Format Date & Time To Show Day, Date & Time
I have a sheet with a list of dates in it that I wish to format to show the day as well as date and time. I am trying to do this automatically with a macro, below is the before and the desired after.

Format - dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm
Appearance - 29/03/2009 00:30

Format - ddd dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm
Appearance - Sun 29/03/2009 00:30

This works fine when I format the cells manually, but when I try to format them via macro '29/03/2009 00:30' becomes 'Sun 29/03/2009 12:30' which is obviously a totally different time! Has anyone got ay idea why it might be doing this?

Adding And Subtracting Time
I have the formula in my spreadsheet to compute time. It works only if the time in B1 is greater then the time in A1. I would to know if there is a formula to compute time with either negative or postive answer. For example if a carrier was set to load their papers at 12:02pm and ended up loading early at 11:50am I would like the result in C1 to be -12 or (12).

Currently I am using the formula: =HOUR(B1-A1)*6+MINUTE(B1-A1). Like I said, it is all good until someone loads early and then I get a "#NUM!"

Are there any other formula's that I can use or is there a simple modification to the formula I am using?

Adding Time Values
I'll admit that the database I'm currently working on is not a vital on - it's my CD collection but I do use it as a testbed for spreadsheets at work so please bear with me!

I'm trying to add running times of CDs together, but of course can't simply use SUM as it will assume the values are base 10

I've got some extra columns in to separate the minutes and seconds, then for totals to divide the seconds by 60, add the result to the total minutes and finally add the remainder of seconds to this but........

is it possible format a cell so it won't allow erroneous time entries (ie, if I tried to put in 45:65 it would reject it?)

Adding Time Cells Together
1) I am trying to find a way to add together the total number of hours worked from shift start time to the end of the shift start time throughout the week.

2) Add together the total number of hours travelled. again from the start and end times throughout the week...(presumably, if I solve the first problem, it in itself will provide the second solution.!! (Grin)

Where shift start and end times are concerned, the cells are formatted as time, but I want the sheet to produce the results of the total number of hours worked, so that I may cost the hours and make payment. Ie: 62 hours worked = £ at such and such a rate, and 25hrs travel paid at £ different rate.

Adding Time Racking Formulas
I want me to track our inbox. All jobs that go into the inbox get logged on a sheet and at the end of the day get transferred to an Excel spreadsheet. They now want to track how long s job sits in the inbox before it's logged out and worked on. Currrently we put a time and date for both logged in and logged out. I've attached below a sample spreadsheet and a brief description as to some restrictions.

Our hours of work is 7AM to 6PM. So we only want to add add up the time the job was in the inbox based on those hours.... ie if a job came in right at 6PM at night and was logged out at 7:05AM in the morning, the total time that job was in the inbox was 5 mins. Same thing applies for the weekends.

Delete Date & Time Cells Based On Time
I have a large dataset where the first column is date and time i.e. "20/01/2005 03:41:06" and I want to delete certain rows based on the times. I have already tried playing about with macro's but failed fairly spectacularly so far. I have code from someone else to delete cells if the value equals a certain time but this doesn't work as the cell contains the date too.

I have already recorded one macro to reformat the data to as the software return 10 timestamped samples per hour and I want 8 i.e. every three hours so there is constant separation for statistical purposes. Both the macros are shown below so you can see what I have.

Ideally I would like to replace the line - If (r.Cells(n, 1) = TimeValue("22:41:06")) ............ - with one that reads - If (r.Cells(n, 1) CONTAINS TimeValue........ - but I don't know if that is possible? If not is there a way to separate the time from the date into 2 columns and then I can delete rows based on the time column using the code below? .......

Remove The Time From A Cell With Date And Time In It?
I have data exported from a defect management tool (that reports all the defects that have been recorded in the defect management system). This data has unique columns for name of originator, defect ID, date originated, priority, etc. The date originated column has the date and time. I want to create a report that tells me how many High, Medium and Low priority defects were created on each date - and I am using a pivot table to do this.

However, because the date column is actually the date and time the defect was reported/recorded, the time element of this is making all the dates unique eg, I have three defects recorded on 29/01/2009, a High priority defect (reported at 29/01/2009 12:23) and two Medium priority defects (reported at 29/01/2009 13:02 and 29/01/2009 13:32). My pivot table is showing each date as a unique date - with a count of 1 against each, whereas I want to see 1 date entry (for 29/01/2009) with a count of 1 against High and 2 against Medium.

I have tried custom formatting the date column to dd/mm/yyyy - which appears to work in the data (but doesn't in the pivot table, because the time stamp is still there, just not visible). I have tried copy and paste special [Values] (on the custom formatted date column) -but the time stamp is still there. I have tried formatting the date column to "General", but this changes the dates to the number format - eg 29/01/2009 12:23 becomes 39842.5166203704.

I have tried inserting a new column and using the =Left function for the first 10 characters of the cell (ie the 29/01/2009), but that gives the first 10 characters of the number form of the date, ie 39842.5166. Basically, without going into every date cell (and I have thousands) and manually deleting all the times, how do I quickly change the date column into just having the date in it (ie how do I strip off the time element)?
