# Adding A Colon ( : ) To Convert A Standard Number Into A Time Format

## Is there a way to enter a colon into a standard number to create a value that can be formatted into a 24 hour time value? eg a time is listed as 1345 with a general number format, and I want it returned as 13:45 witha custom format of hh:mm. Other than creating a table and using a vlookup function

Time Format Why I Enter Colon Between The Hours And Minutes
I have used the format [hh]:mm in a cell for 24 hr clock calculations. Why do I have to enter the numbers with a colon when I populate the cells? Is there a way to set it up so I just type in the four numbers and the colon between the hours and minutes populates itself?

Convert Standard Time In Military Time
I need a simple formula to convert standard time (1:05pm) into military time (13:08).

I've read through several posts, but all I've found is reformatting or time subtraction type information. The reformating works to an extent, it gives me the hours in military but the minutes stay standard.

Basicly, all I need is:

Cell A1 = 1:05 p
Cell B1 = formula that shows/converts 1:05 p as 13:08

Input Time Without Colon
I am making a template for our security kiosk log and I wanted to simplify it as much as possible. I found the "time mask entry" and imputed that into the vba code. It was working for awhile however stopped working a few days ago. I went back and copied and pasted it again and changed the range to what I needed and an error came up stating "unable to set the NumberFormat property to the range class."

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim vVal
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A100")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

With Target

vVal = Format(.Value, "0000")
If IsNumeric(vVal) And Len(vVal) = 4 Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
.Value = Left(vVal, 2) & ":" & Right(vVal, 2)
.NumberFormat = "[h]:mm"
End If
End With

Application.EnableEvents = True

End Sub

Convert Number To Time & Decimal Time
I need to separate a list of times from a telecommunications bill. I have 170,000 line of data.

The Times are represented as below.

eg

159 1 min 59 sec
200 2 mins

How do I separate them to a decimalized per min value.

Adding Time :: Recognize Format Hh:mm:ss
I am importing from another program into Excel. Anytime I have a time in a column with a 0 in the 2nd hour place it will not add that time in. Example (05:21:32)

A2 05:12:15
A3 10:15:12

Total= 20:35:24

How can I get excel to recognize a time in this format with a zero (05:34:23)?

Convert Serial Date Time To General Format
I use software that exports date/time stamps in the format of: MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss.s
I like to keep the data in this general format so that we can keep it consistent and it can be useful to others using other software.
I recently had to do some date/time stamp manipulations where I added 61 days to a dataset because the data was erroneously set to a diferent calendar. (Still don't know how that happened but it isn't relevent to this issue) When I set up a formula to add 61 days, it appears that it automatically converted it to the excel serial date/time format before adding the 61 days. Now I have a column of data that is mostly general format but has this portion in serial format. How can I get the serial format changed back to general so that the entire column is in the same format?

Find Time Format Cells And Convert To Date
I am pasting a large amount of data from a sql server query into excel. There is multiple tables output in each query. Some of the data is date/time and excel is formatting all of these cells to time. The date/time cells to not neatly line up in any row or column, so I cannot just format any give column or row. I need a macro that will find all of the cells that are formatted as time and change them to a date format.

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

Convert Number To Percent Format
I have built a spreadsheet that pulls data into B60:AA240 (Sheet name is "Actual Numbers Report") from a different sheet in the same workbook. Some of the data is in Number format and the other is in Percent Format. What I would like to do is if AL10 in the Actual Numbers Report sheet says "Actual Numbers" then I would like the cells in B60:AA240 convert to a number format "000,000,000" If AL10 says "Trends" then I want it to convert the cells in B60:AA240 to a percent format "0.0%". I tried creating some code, but it doesn't seem to work.

Private Sub Convert_Percent()
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B60:AA240")) Is Nothing Then
If .Range("AL9") = "Actual Numbers" Then
Range("B60:AA240").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "000,000,000"
ElseIf .Range("AL9") = "Trends" Then
Range("B60:AA240").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "0.0%"
End If
End If

End Sub

If this can work then the 2nd question I would have is can this same line of thinking work to format the chart that this data is pulled from? So if it is Actual Numbers the chart would be in a number format and if it is Trends then it will change to a percent format?

How To Convert TEXT Into NUMBER Format

Cannot Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Number Format
There is probably a really easy answer to this question but I cannot seem to figure it out. I need to calculate the sum of pages faxed on a fax report at my office on an excel spreadsheet which is downloaded from our server. It appears the file is not meant to be used in excel but it downloads as an "*.xls" file anyway. When I open the file I receive this message:

"The file you are trying to open, 'FaxCetailReport.xls', is in a different format then specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"

The file is comnig from a trusted source so I select "Yes" and it opens just fine. There are just over 50 rows of info, one of them being the number of pages. In a blank cell I enter "=SUM(select rows)" and the result is a "0". I have converted the cells to the "number" format, no change. When I right click on the cells and select format, the protection tab on the right has the check box "Locked" checked and unchecking it does nothing, it is checked as soon as you go back in to the protection tab.

The only way around this is to manually retype the numbers in a cell next to the pages column, which is ok for 50 numbers, but I have some sheets where there is over 1,000 entries.

Convert A Date Format To A Text Format
Example......

In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08

As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!

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

eg:

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

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

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:
=IF(CO2<0.75,IF(CO2<0.5,IF(CO2<0.25,CL2+(81.6/(24*60)),CL2+(74.56/24*60)),CL2+(81.75/(24*60))),CL2+(79/(24*60)))

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.

Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format

I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.

First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.

Convert Number In TextBox To True Number
i have this function that poulates data from a userform into a sheet.

.Offset(1, 3) = Controls("txtCBM" & lLoop)
.Offset(1, 4) = "= ROUND(E" & Y & "*167,0)"
.Offset(1, 5) = "=IF(D" & Y & ">F" & Y & ",D" & Y & ",F" & Y & ")"
.Offset(1, 6) = "=IF(F" & Y & ">D" & Y & ",G" & Y & "-D" & Y & ",G" & Y & "-F" & Y & ")"
Y = Y + 1
End With
Next lLoop

My problem is that the data being entered into the sheet for the lines highlighted in red is going in as text, and not true numerics, so that the subsequent formulae are not working correctly.

Time Sheet :: 12 Hour Time Format With AM/PM
I found a formula for calculating time in the HH:MM AM/PM

=IF(B1<A1,B1+1,B1)-A1

This formula was to give me total hours in the cell for which it is entered, and cell format for the formula was in military format.

I cannot find this post. The formula worked in OpenOffice Calc program, but when it came to converting to excel, I came up with #value!

I want to enter the time in 12 hour format and using am/pm to designate. I am making it for someone to make work schedules with and they do not know military time.
