I have a column of tasks that take a certain amount of time to complete formated as h:mm:ss. I want to total the column and convert the total to days, hours and minutes. Is that posible and if so how do I configure a formula and format the cell? example:

Assuming that a workday is from 8:30am to 5:00pm. (also need to not calcualte Saturday and Sunday but this example doesn't show it).

Wednesday, 7/18/07 at 4:00pm (minus) Friday, 7/20/07 at 9:00am (should equal) 10 hours or 1 day, 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Basically what I want to do it determine how much work time has elapsed from the time a message was left on voicemail to the time that someone picks that message up. We only want to assume that a message can be retrieved duruing business hours but a message can be left at anytime!

I have a spread sheet with a colum showing average time to complete a task. This is currently shown as Days:Hours:Minutes:Seconds (4:19:33:19). I meed it to be shown purely as minutes, or at least as hours and minutes.

1) The output of an excel duration is : 22.00:8.00:25.00 ( day:hour:minutes ) - excel cannot average and work with this number format

2) resolution - =(LEFT(L2,4))+MID(L2, FIND(":",L2)+1,4)/24+MID(L2, FIND(":",L2,7)+1,4)/1440 as an array and Custom Format the cell as [h]:mm - works perfectly.

Q: to be conistent, the initial reporting is dd:hh:mm and then I convert to hh:mm so that excel can process the data. How can I convert from hh:mm to dd:hh:mm so that the excel report can be consistent in presenting the data to senior management?

When I am converting a time from Hours/Minutes to Hours/Tenths, Excel is not converting it consitantely. EXAMPLE: 1:15 = 1.25. When I format the cell to present only one place past the decimal point, sometimes the cell will round up to 1.3, and other times it will round down to 1.2. What am I missing?

I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me please?

I am trying to write a function that will convert a number into days-hours-minutes. I have managed to get as far as hours-minutes using the following function.

=INT(A1/60)&"h "&ROUND(MOD(A1/60,1)*60,0)&"m"

e.g. If A1 = "7090" the result of this function will be "118h 10m".

I now need to express the result as xxxd xxxh xxxm and this is where I am stuck!

I am trying to add duration time for song files. 4 minutes and 32 seconds + 3 minutes 45 seconds, etc. etc. to get total hours and then to total to days. The range of cells is over 5,000 and I am trying to find out how long a playlist will play.

I have two columns A and B. Column A contains problem title and column B is duration minutes. In column B we enter always min and seconds it took us to resolve certain issues (22.15 = 22 minutes and 15 seconds) . At the end of the month I need to run a report for my manager to show her by problem title how long it took my group to resolve issues and it should output as Hours/min/days.

Is there a way to have it show the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds? So it will say 45:1:23:42? (45 days, 1 hour, etc...) Or something along these lines?

I want to Sum up the minutes in the particular Column, so that at the end with i put formala, the output would be X Hrs X Mins, one more thing i would like to do in it is , I want to copy paste the value of formula in next column, for eg the formula is in A6, i want value of that formula in B6.

I have data sheet that has a field minutes. I a pivot table I have the Average Minutes per category. How it the pivot table can I show the Average minutes as Days, Hrs, Minutes? I am working in Excel 2007.

Having trouble adding a column of minutes and converting the total into hours and minutes. Say Cell A1 through Cell A18 each have 12 minutes in each cell. I want cell A19 to tell me how many hours and minutes of total time that have elapsed. I have tried hh:mm, [hh]:mm, but nothing works.

Just basic enter a start time in column A a finish time in column B and column C gives you total in hours and minutes and then maybe a way to sum those hours and minutes. how to do "Math" on time and how it should be entered (formatted) for it to work properly.

I've got a worksheet that deals with dates and time. Similar to a checkbook, I need to take the balance and subtract what's taken from that. But the writer copied this from another software program and it's in this format. How do I convert it to a time format? Or is that what I really need? Right now the taken and balance are both in a general format.

I just need to know on any of the given days what the balance of this person's time was in hours and minutes.

i need a vba code , i have time in column F like 8:30 , 3:30 , 5:30 , 8:30 , 9:30.......i need a macro which will add 00:30 in all cells in column F if time is less than 7.00 hrs

basically I am trying to make a time calculator for work, I want it to automatically add the hours up but then also minus break times and then give me a whole paid total hours worked that week.

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?

I am a truck driver and keep a record of my loading times when I am loading and unloading. At the end of a trip i transfer all the data to my computer, then "auto sum" the "HOURS" and the "MINUTES" columns. At the bottom of ech trip I end up with figures, lets say 32 (hours) in column "J" and 303 (minutes) in column "K".

Now 303 minutes is {5 hours and 3 minutes}. Now we all know that mathematically we can work out that {3} minutes is 0.05 of 1 hour and that would make the total time worked 32 (hours) + 5 (hours(from the minutes)) + the last 3 minutes and the total is 37 hours and 3 minutes.

What I am in need of is a formula that will take the hours in column "J" add the hours from column "K", leaving the minutes to be converted to 0.05, giving me a total in cell "M29" that can then be multiplied by the wage rate in cell "M30", giving me an amount that I should be paid in cell "M31"

if someone called me at 4:55pm and ended the call at 5:10pm, the whole call lasted 15 minutes. So, I want to show on excel that the call lasted 5 minutes in the 16th hour of the day (4:55pm) and 10 minutes in the 17th hour of the day (5:10pm), for a total of 15 minutes.

find a formula that will calculate the hours between the two below values but only take in to consideration the business hours (from 9 to 17) and exclude any weekends?
