I trying to figure a formula to convert time on a phone call eg. 01:01:21 into total seconds (3661). Phonecalls will never be more than an hour long but the spreadsheet I will be supplied with (havn't got it yet!) will display them in the 00:00:00 format.
I am trying to convert a number of "hours" "minutes" and "seconds", to give me a result in seconds only, in order that I may then financially cost the amount of time spent on a task. (A time and motion costing exercise)
1119:48:06 Represents 1119hours:48minutes:36seconds spent on a task.
I can manually convert this to 4031286 seconds, but it just takes too much time !!!(sorry!)
The data is extracted from a database which is unable to split the hours,minutes,seconds into seperate fields, which prevents me from using three cells in excel.
I have an excel sheet with a row of numbers example below. These numbers represent the length of time that a telephone call was. The problem is they are decimal numbers (units of 100) but they represent seconds and minutes of a phone call which change up one number when the seconds hit 60 ...
I have some time data that is dumped into an excel file from a phone system. I'm trying to average the data, but I get division by zero errors. The data is originally formatted as "general" and when I convert it to a time format I still get the error. I've attached a small version that has just the time column.
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.
Spreadsheet tracks race times for cross country races and needs to be able to calculate improvement time in mm:ss (or zero if less than previous race).
Also,it would be nice to be able to enter times without using colons or have to reference the field as h:mm:ss. The race result will always be mm:ss and the last two digits will always be seconds, the result will never be more than 60 minutes so hours are a real bother.
How do I custom format a cell to display degrees minutes seconds. I now there is a way. I found in on the web once but can not find it again. The formating from cpearson does not work the way i want.
For example if in cell a1 I input 50.2536, I want to to format the cell as 50° 25' 36". opefully this can be applished without any formulas. Either soem code or formating would be great. The last time I found it I thought it was something like ###° ??'/??" but that did not work. Thanks in advance. The reason I need it, is to use the convert_decimal function I found on the microsoft website.
I have a sheet where staff enter the time it takes to do a task. I'm using a custom format of [mm]:ss. However, I enter (for instance) 5 into the cell, the value becomes 7200:00. I finally figured out that this is because that is the number of minutes in 5 days. However, I don't want staff to have to enter 00:05:00 to indicate they worked for 5 minutes. I would rather them be able to enter something like 5:30 (or something along those lines) to indicate this took 5 minutes and 30 seconds.
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.
