Convert Seconds Into Hours, Minutes & Seconds
I have a spreadsheet that imports data relating to phone call durations. The information imports as a total number of seconds taken.

What I need to do is to change that number of seconds into hours, minutes and seconds.

Changing the format of the cells doesn't work.

I've tried everything I can think of, and run out of ideas.

example:

23 needs changing to 00:00:23
96 needs changing to 00:01:36
268 to 00:04:28
9374 to 02:35:14

Convert Hours, Minutes And Seconds Into Total Seconds
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.

Hours:minutes:seconds Convert To Seconds
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)

Example:

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.

Calc Minutes And Seconds Difference
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.

A1 (8:52, m:ss) - A2 (8:40, mm:ss) should = 0.12 (12 seconds)

Presently I am using the following: =TEXT(A2-A1,"h:mm:ss"), I only want to
display m:ss, hours are meanlingless

Converting Time To Seconds.
I have the below macro. It is used to translate time to seconds (i.e. 0:20:04 minutes to 1204 seconds)
This works well, but i just want to know 3 things.
First, can the new data (seconds value) be added to new worksheet (worksheet 4) of the workbook the original data is taken from, instead of a whole new workbook?
Second, can this be done without having to save the original workbook first?
Third, (Im sorry i know this is VERY simple) but this macro is part of a larger macro, and i just want to know the code to hide the screen updating as the macro is running.

Sub Refresh()
Columns("A:A").EntireColumn.Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Selection.TextToColumns Destination:=ActiveCell, DataType:=xlFixedWidth, _
FieldInfo:=Array(0, 4), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
End Sub.........

Time As A String And Converting To Seconds
I have an ACD program that gives me a time in "mm:ss" format, or in ":ss" fomat. I have 2-3 problems with charting this data.

1 I am inheriting the production of charts from someone else, with old data being displayed by seconds only I am supposed to keep this display.

2 the data that is in mm:ss format is recognized as being in full date format, for example 2:14 is recognized as 2:14:00 AM instead of 2 minutes, 14 seconds.

3 the data that is in :ss, ie :44, is recognized as a string.

Any thoughts on how I can convert both cases to a integer seconds? I know for example that I could mid() the second condition, but I am stuck thinking about the first condition.

I can't adjust the way the time comes in, unfortunately. It is an auto-generated export of the data from a switch.

Macro Takes Seconds In XP And 2003, Minutes In Vista And 2007
I have a fairly simple macro that takes a few seconds on my XP-computer with Excel 2003 but takes several minutes on my Vista-computer with Excel 2007.

The XP-PC has 2GB memory, the Vista-PC only 1GB, but it's hard to believe it's only that.
Is Excel 2007 so much slower than 2003?

The macro makes quite extensive use of the .rows(Rownr).Delete method. Is the fact that 2007 has 1 million rows against the 65536 of 2003 the culprit? It has to shift much more data up when deleting a row, no?

Jump To Next Cell After X Seconds
1. Create a worksheet for each set of tables (Sheet1: 2x table, Sheet2: 3x table etc)
2. In field A3 (e.g.), I'd type (Formatted as text): 2x1=
3. In field B3, he'd have to type the answer. To prevent him from using the cell as a calculating tool, it will be formatted as text (courtesy of Prevent Someone From Entering A Formula In A Cell)
4. He'll start the test by clicking a button that says "START THE TEST" (or something more exciting, like "Earn some money!"). I'd like a macro to select the first cell (This I can do, believe it or not! :-)) and then, after, say 5 seconds, jump to the second cell, then the third etc up to the last cell (2x13=)
5. Despite the timer, the active cell must be allowed to be changed to the following one (one down) by pressing "Enter" (In other words, if the timer is set at 5 seconds and Jonathan enters the answer in 1, he may then press enter and move to the following cell immediately)
5. He can only enter the answer in the cell while highlighted and I'll have the whole sheet protected once the macro has done its run to the end or once he's answered the final question and pressed "Enter".

Play Sound Every X Seconds
I would like to create a macro that plays a sound every 45 seconds or so. In other words, I would like to have a countdown timer that counts from 45 seconds down to 0 seconds and at the end it plays a sound file(could be mp3, wav, etc) to signal the end. After that it should automatically reset itself back to the start of 45s and count down again. This would be repeated about ten to eleven times. What is the easiest way of doing this? It's too confusing. Lets say the audio file was located in: C:my soundseep.wav

Imported Document Time To Seconds
I have an imported docment that stores the data as excel time. I need the data in seconds. I changed the format to [s]. This was great, exactly what I needed until I imported the document in to Access. Access changed the data back to time format. So here is my question: Is there any way to paste [s] data and save it as an text? or Is there a formula that I can change the data into seconds? I have searched the forum for a couple of days and went to the formula help page, but there was nothing that addressing my issue.

See Example below

Original imported data:
0:17:57; 1:53:00
10:04:11; 34:54:36
127:19:04; 804:26:33
297:58:37; 127:10:07
72:59:56; 273:31:29

Changed to [s] (desired values in Text or number format):
1077; 6780
36251; 125676
458344; 2895993
1072717; 457807
