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.

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 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 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 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:

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 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?

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?

Is there a method to calculate the total number of hours in excel. In my attached file, the excel treat the 24 hours as time and recalculate from 0 hour.

I am trying to determine the total hours of downtime accumulated when there are 2 or more machines down during the same time period. To do this, I need to be able to determine if at any point there are 2 or more pieces of equipment down at the same time, and if this is true, how many hours were overlapped. The attached spreadsheet shows how the data is presented.

Any way to calculate the total hours staff work based on the mininum time of the first transaction to the maximum time of the transactions. I used a DMIN and DMAX function to get those times per employee. The issue is then the time goes over from one day to the next, such as from 11 PM to 4 AM the next day. As you can see in the data below,the fourth record shows the minimum time as 12 AM and the max as 11 PM with total time worked as 23 hours. In this example, the total hours worked should be five hours.

I have call data in date/time 06/07/08 2:00 PM custom format for a 2 month period. I have my regular opening times eg Monday 9-3, Tuesday 10-4. For each call I want to know if it was made during opening times or not.

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.

We have a system called Datamart that outputs in excel formatted file.

The output of a duration is : 22.00:8.00:25.00 ( day hour minutes )

I want to be able to add, subtract, average, calculate the 10 fastest/slowests durations from a list of durations in this same format. I have googled and tried custom formatting but excel does not like this format. when I try to sum a range and divide by the number excel gives me 0.

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 need to calculate the difference between two cells that are formated like this: 11/10/2006 13:00. Simple subtract only works when the date hasn't changed (the subtract formula seems to focus on the time and ignore the date).

I found a formula that will work, but the results are in regular numbers, I need the hh:mm format and if I change the format of the result column, the time displayed is wrong.

The formula is=((B2-A2)*1440)/60)

If my result is 122.6 in regular numbers, when I convert to hh:mm I get 14:00.

Is there a better way to do this? Also, is there a way to eliminate weekend & holiday hours from the calculation? This is not as important as getting the results to calculate correctly in the hh:mm format.

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.

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?
