Custom Format Does Not Work - How To Change Column B2 To Hours And Minutes

Mar 3, 2013

The attached file contains data. In Worksheet 1 (and also 2 and 3) column B2 shows day, month, year, hours, minutes and seconds. I was hoping to convert this to just Hours and Minutes, but all the usual methods using Custom Format does not work. This leads me to think that its in TEXT format. How can I change Column B2 to 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?

I would like to find out a way to work out the number of minutes worked during particular shifts for weekdays. Basically I have two columns, one for start time, and one for end time. They are formatted like dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm. So they have the date in there as well.

I would like a formula that would look at a range say A1-A11 and work out what shift it is and then output number of hours worked per shift. Day shift would start at 8am and finish 5pm, Twilight shift would start at 5pm and finish at 9:30pm, night shift would start at 9:30pm and finish at 8am the next day. So I would need it to check for example the start and end times (and dates) and then output 3 rows that show the total minutes worked.

There will be multiple days so it would need to say for example Monday Day, Twi, Night, Tuesday Day, Twi, Nights etc. Up to Friday Day shift because we don't work Friday Twilight or Nights, and we don't work Weekends.

Basically there is a list of jobs completed with Start Time and End Time for each and I also have a column that works out the number of minutes worked on that job. So the formula would need to look at many rows.

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.

Data in a cell is formatted in h:mm which is truly a result of a calculation of # of hours & minutes detained at a location. D

Data is result of microstrategy query so result is

E.g. 17:08

Cell is formatted as custom h:mm, but there is actually a fictitious date of 1/1/1900 defaulting in front of h:mm when double clicking into cell or viewing in fx field above. How do I get rid of that date which is inhibiting me from converting 17:08 to minutes by using the formula of =TEXT(L3,"[m]")

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 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 am using a formula such as =Text(A5-E5,"H:MM) to get the difference in clock-in time and clock-out time on a daily basis (Monday-Saturday). I want to add the results as a total for the week. I am not sure what formula to use to get that result. I prefer not to use decimals unless I have to. Also, the above formula does not work when the time goes past 12 midnight.

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

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.

I have a formula which will calculate the number of hours and minutes between two military times. I would like it to calculate the total number of minutes instead of hours and minutes. I have uploaded a small example of what i have so far.

I'm trying to convert 3786 minutes to day:hours:minutes. So divided it by 1440 which is 2.63... but I want this displayed in the worksheet as 2 days 1 hour and 3 minutes (02:01:03), I just can't seem to get it to work and it seems quite simple... but I'm missing something.... I was trying a custom format like dd:hh:mm or [d]:hh:mm and I was also trying a convert function and =day/1440+hour +minute

creating a formula for converting time data that has been created in an excel spreadsheet in minutes i.e. 516 minutes which I need to turn into Hours and Minutes i.e. 08:36 I am not experienced using Formulas, apologies if this question has been posted before, I did use the search facility to look for threads, but could not find anything related

I have a worksheet which I am trying to format as a template which includes inputting start times and end times of work and calculating how many minutes are taken to do the job. I just can seem to find the correct formula.

I saw there were codes to sum or count cells that have a specified Fill Color http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/sum-count-cells-by-color.htm

However it says the changing of a cells fill color will not cause the Custom Function to recalculate, I really need to recalculate the data if there are any changes in the selected range

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 am trying to make a employee work hour sheet so i can add the time and it add up all the hours and minutes he/she been working . now what i am trying to do is to enter 810 in the cell it automatically change it to 8:10 format but the problem it change it to 12:00:00. even when i enter 083612 it again change it to 12:00:00.

now i have used the format cell > time and no luck. i already removed and installed my office but i still have the same problem.

I have a macro that runs through a list and stores elements to an array. If the element is not found in my list, it adds to the next available row and adds the value from the array to that cell. Right now, I am searching in column d but am storing the value of column a at that location. When I switch the reference to column D, the value is not inserted into my new list.

Here is my current code:

Code: Sub Arraytest() Dim arr As Variant, lastrow As Long, i As Long, f As Long, l As Long, lastrow2 As Long, insertrow As Long

[Code].....

Why does the code not work properly when I switch to D? The value is storing correctly in the array. I test this by the last line of the code and it executes properly.

I know similar questions have been asked in the past, but I can't seem to get this to work for my specific case. I need to convert hours into minutes, and these times do not conform to a 24 hour clock. For example, I need to convert 1000:15 into 1000.25

I have a database which shows a time some one came into work and a time they left. Formatted as HH:MM. I can minus the time they left from the time they came in...to work out how many hours they worked. However, whenever i want to work out how many mintes it is (time left - time in * 60). It does not seem to work.

Unsurprisingly I have a spreadsheet: Column D contains the total hours that a component has been installed for Column C contains the additional hours the component acquired

I need the total of these 2 sets of time added together to give me the new hours that the component has acquired. All cells have been formatted [h]:mm:ss

I attach an extract of the spreadsheet. At the moment the values in column D are all calculated manually. When I add the values together Excel returns #Value!

The annoying thing is that in cells B2 and A3 I tested this and can do this with no problem...the value in B3 is the sum of B2 and A3.

I am trying to calculate employees hours of work from information provided to myself.

Each employee is contracted to work 40 hours per week. The information provided to myself is in the format - Employee has worked 39.30 This is in fact 39 hrs 30 minutes. Obviously when I subtract 39.30 from 40.00 I get 0.7 and not 30 minutes. I tried formatting the cell containing these figures to hh:mm but it comes out at 15.30 & 15.00 respectively because it is over 24 hrs. How do I convert the digital number (0.7) to minutes I.e. 30 minutes.

I have tried to convert the 40 hrs into minutes but because the hours are greater than 24 then I struggle.

I have a spreadsheet that keeps track of my flight time by the day and then totals it for the month however, I keep it in a decimal number (i.e. 89.23). I want the final total number to be in Hours and Minutes hhh:mm and can not for the life of me figure out the formula to make it come out in hours and minutes. I can either convert the one final decimal number over to hours and minutes or add the entire collumn of decimal numbers and have THAT total converted to hours and minutes. It's doesn't matter to me. I just can't figure out the formula.
