# How To Make Clock To Show Time In Words

Aug 29, 2013

I want to make a Word Clock. Instead of showing the time as "12:30" I want it to show the words "It is half past twelve"

To Do this I've created a Square of Letters on an excel sheet (one letter per cell!) with black letters and black back grounds, when it is 12.30 I want the relevant letters to (cells) to change the text coulor to white so it shows up.

The cell I'm using are from D8 to P19 and the time is shown in A1

So lets say at 12.30 Cells D9, F12, H14 and M16 need to change from Black Text Colour to White Coulour,

I need a code or some VB that says "If A1 = 12.30 the Cells D9,F12,H14,M16 = White Text Colour, if not Black Text Colour".

## Select A Time From A Clock?

Jun 12, 2013

I've linked some cells to the date picker function so a date can be selected from a pop-up calendar.

Is it possible to do the same with a clock function?

## Use Excel As Time Clock?

Sep 6, 2005

I currently use a manual time clock for my employees to punch in and out. I then use Excel to tally their times. This is very tedious and error prone.

Is it possible to use Excel as the timeclock itself? I know that the employee can enter the time in a spreadsheet manually. But this also opens the door for error and potential dishonesty.

What I am looking for is, if the employee can punch in and out by doing a keystroke and Excel uses the computer's clock to timestamp.

## Time (clock) Times A Number

Apr 2, 2009

I have a start time in one column, end time in another and a column with the difference between the two. In another column I have profit. In the last column I have profit per hour where I divide the profit by the hours, but since one is hours and the other is a number it gives me an error.

## Time Related To 24hr Clock

Jun 22, 2009

What i try to achieve is: from 00:00hrs to 24:00hrs = 24hrs which is 1.0 day
Have made the attached spredsheet to calculate it correctly to 1 day. But if you look on the attachment the "total hrs" is saying 00:00 (it transfers to 00:00 when i am putting in 24:00). Basically how am I able to make Excel to display 24:00 insted of 00:00. Maybe there is an add ins availible like the pop up calendar but for times instead.

## Time Clock And Converting To 3 Min Increment

Jul 8, 2009

Okay I have a basic Time clock calculation in excel (i.e.-(timeout1-timein1)+(timeout2-timein2)="Total time"). What I need to do is convert the "Total time" to be changed to 3 min increments. I don't know if that is the best way to put it but let me show you the chart for the conversions.
3 mins=.05 hrs, 6 mins=.10, etc etc etc.

So lets put this into us

A1 (timein1)= 6:42 AM
A2(timeout1)=11:30 AM
A3(timein2)= 12:00 PM
A4(timeout2)= 5:00 PM (17:00)

So A5(Total Time)=9h 48min, but I need it to equal 9.80 hrs because with the conversion, 48 mins is .80 of an hour. So how can I set up A5 (Total time) to automatically do this calculation? This website is how I would like it to work http://www.1728.com/timecard.htm

## Calculating Time (24 Hour Clock)

Jul 16, 2012

I've calculated the time of hours worked by staff using th 24 hour clock - "hh:mm" format.

When summing up the hours, it goes a bit haywire, i.e.

Staff A = 12:30
Staff B = 14:00
Sum = 02:30

Total should equal 26:30 (26 and a half hours), however I get returned 02:30. I assume it is down to the 24 hour clock and I so I tried adding 24 to it in the formula bar to get the right answer and it didn't work.

## Time Countdown - A Live Clock In The Spreadsheet?

Nov 5, 2011

I need to calculate how much time I've got left before the earliest order needs to be despatched (it might be 2 or more on every day). This wouldn't be a problem if orders would be placed daily. But for every item it varies. For example: for "X" product there is an order in 3 days time to be despatched at 19:00. I have built a live clock in the spreadsheet but I can't work out the formula.

P.S. Also I need two time formats, first - days(text) hh:mm second - just a numeric value that can be formated as [hh:mm].

## Running Clock In Excel With Different Time Zone

Nov 28, 2013

Need running clock in Excel... in A1 I have put running clock which is taking current system time. However, I want to add running clocks for EST in B1 - CST in C1 and PST in D1.

VB code I used to display current system running clock

Global clockOn As Boolean
Sub runClock()
Range("A1").Value = Now()
If clockOn = True Then

[Code] ......

## Time Clock Six Minute Rounding Formula

Apr 27, 2007

I am trying to figure out the written formula for needing this answer:

For a time clock with 6 minute rounding.

If I type in 8:20 as the arrival time, I need it to round to 8:18, so that the final time will be in tenths.

Here is the rounding:

Actual Rounded Minutes in Time Clock
:57, :58, :59, :00, :01, :02
:03, :04, :05, :06, :07, :08
:09, :10, :11, :12, :13, :14
:15, :16, :17, :18, :19, :20
:21, :22, :23, :24, :25, :26
:27, :28, :29, :30, :31, :32
:33, :34, :35, :36, :37, :38
:39, :40, :41, :42, :43, :44
:45, :46, :47, :48, :49, :50
:51, :52, :53, :54, :55, :56

Anything in the same line will round to the bolded time.

Example: I arrive to work at 8:09 and go to lunch at 11:59, it will round to 8:12 and 12:00, making my time worked 3:48 or 3.80. Then I get back from lunch at 12:59 and leave at 17:14, which will round to 13:00 and 17:12, making my time worked 4:12 or 4.2 for the 2nd 1/2 of the day and 8:00 or 8.0 hours for the day.

Time In----------Time Out----------Total Time----------Decimal Time----------Total Hours
...8:12.................12:00..................3:48......................3.80
..13:00................17:12..................4:12......................4.20..........................8.00

The problem is I want to write the actual time and not have to round everything myself and yet I need the decimal time to match what my time clock actually calculates from.

My current formula for the decimal shown above as 3.80 is this: =(HOUR(F7)*60+MINUTE(F7))/60
My current formula for the total time for the day (regular hours) is this: =IF((((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24)>8,8,((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24)
My current formula for overtime is this: =IF(((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24>8,((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24-8,0)

This is not a time clock, it is my personal copy of what my time for the week was/is, so that I can compare it to the actual time card that I have to sign off on.

## Make Userform Show Data From Spreadsheet And Add Delete Or Make New Entry

Jan 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet on sheet 1 with a list of customers and their information. So on column A I have the customer number (i.e. k968, e37, p528,...), on column B i have the customer's name, on column C the street's name, on Column D the house number, on column E the zip code and finally the city on column F.

Right now there are around 600 customers in this list.

I have made a userform with a combobox in which I want to select an existing customer (pulled from the spreadsheet). On the same userform I have textboxes (customer number, name, street, number, zip, city). When I select a customer in the combobox, I want this customer's info to show up in the textboxes. I want to be able to change the info and hit Next to store the changes in the spreadsheet. When I do not select a customer from the combobox, I want to add new info in the textboxes and hit Next to store this info as a new customer. The userform also has a delete button. Then I select a customer in the combobox, this customer (and it's info) should be deleted from the spreadsheet when i hit Delete. So the spreadsheet is variable in length.

## Replace Like Words In Column To Make Word Cloud?

Jun 21, 2013

how to accomplish more work quickly is proving difficult. I am making a word cloud of survey responses for my boss and he doesn't like to see similar words in the cloud (like Ease and Easy or even Fast and Quick). I have several hundred of these responses that are open ended answers that say one or many of these terms. Any way I can separate all the words and have them in one neat column? If I can get to that point, replacing those words will be simple enough.

## Time (clock) Times A Number= Very High Number?

Apr 2, 2009

I have time start and time end and the difference between the two times. In a third column I have profit and want to calculate the profit per hour. When I divide the profit with the time spent I get a very very high number. If I for instance type in 1 hour of work and profit 100, then I get profit per hour 2400. (profit/hours spent)

On a side note I am trying to get the numbers as 24 hours and not use am or pm and in the spread sheet I get these numbers but in the box at the top where you see the formulas etc. it shows as am and pm. I have uploaded an example.

## Make A Drop Down List Show The Picture

Jan 2, 2007

I am trying to do, is make a drop down list show the picture above it. I have tried to change everything, and I am sure I am just a hair away from getting it right. I got the spreadsheet to where it will pull up the "Picture #" in the appropriate box, and even had it delete/hide all my pictures (I say delete/hide because I couldn't get them back after I removed the coding I was working on).

Another nice function I would like would be a button, around cell B74, to erase all the picks and reset the sheet for the next season... it would have to have a prompt to verify the user was absolutely sure they wanted to do that though! But I don't know where to begin on that button issue. Can someone point me in the right direction?

The spreadsheet is too big to attch, so it's hosted at the link below. The sheets involved are NFL Survivor & PicTable. On sheet PicTable, the Names & Pic #'s have already been named PicTable for ease of coding.

## Make Multiple Name Show Up Only Once In Pivot Table?

Mar 27, 2009

In the attached file (xlsx) under 'Database' Tab poeple have indicated their preferences (multiple choices) for different food items "specialties". The specialties are grouped under broader buckets called "groups". The specialties are bucketed into groups in a way that people end up more than once in each specialties and groups due to their muliple selections. When we create a pivot by specialties (Pivot Specialties tab), each person appears only once for each specialty...it's great. But, when we create a "group" pivot (each group has multiple specialties), now, people appear more than once for each group. Is there a way, each person can show up only once under each group so the group count does not appear to be misleading?

## IF Formulas - Make First Line To Show Delayed?

Feb 20, 2014

I have a problem with 2 "IF formulas"

A B C
23:30 00:30 1:00 - =IF(B2>B2,A2-A2,B2+1-A2)
14:00 13:00 On Time -=IF(B3<A3,"On Time","Delayed")

My question is: - how to make the first line to show me Delayed. It is a problem with the time before and after midnight.

## Make Certain Worksheets Show/hide When Others Are Clicked

Jan 6, 2010

Essentially what I want can be shown in outline form:

I. Stats (workbook)
A. 2009 (worksheet)
1. Jan (worksheet that appears only when 2009 worksheet is clicked)
2. Feb (worksheet that appears only when 2009 worksheet is clicked)
B. 2010 (worksheet)
1. Jan (worksheet that appears only when 2010 worksheet is clicked)
2. Feb (worksheet that appears only when 2010 worksheet is clicked)

I was hoping there was a way to have one workbook that displays only the years (2009, 2010) as worksheet tabs but once clicked, would reveal 12 nested worksheets (one for each month). Once a different year worksheet was clicked, the month worksheets currently displayed would hide again.

## How To Make VBA Editor Show Userform Code By Default

Apr 25, 2014

When you create a userform in the vba editor, then go to another module, then return to the userform, you see the userform object by default and in order to show the code you have to right-click on the userform and select "view code".

## Make Entries Into Time Log

Feb 2, 2010

I am creating a log to keep track of my start and stop times when I work on a project. I have two columns labelled START and END and I can use a macro button to make the current date and time appear in the cell under these headings. What I haven't been able to find is a way of getting the macro to move to a new blank cell ready to accept the next entry. For instance, move one cell to the right or move one cell down and one to the left.

Can anyone tell me how to do this? (recording it just names the cell so it always goes back to that named cell.)
