Time Format: Format Cells To Contain Minutes, Seconds And Hundredths

Oct 15, 2009

How can I format cells to contain Minutes, Seconds and Hundredths of seconds to be used in calculations eg 1.24.99 means 1 minute and 24.99 seconds. Example calculation is: 1.24.99 - 1.24.90 =0.0.09

I have a report that tells me how many items are completed every "x" seconds for a person. What I would like to do is when I enter that information into my spreadsheet is to have it calculate those seconds into minutes and seconds. (i.e. I will enter 105 (seconds) into a cell and I want it to display 1:45. Is there a formula or setting in the cell format that can do this? The problem I am going to have is that I will have to enter in each cell as seconds every time and then need it to convert to the minute and second format.

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 am trying to set up a workbook to record times for our swimming club. This will involve recording the swimmer's time as minutes, seconds, tenths and hundredths. I would then want to be able to compare the new time to the swimmer's previous personal best and calculate the difference.

I have a formula that gives me a time value (ie 12:53). I need to perform another formula that will use this data but I need the numbers seperated (12 in one cell and 53 in another)

In essence, what would be the formula to pull off the minutes number and the seconds number into individual cells. I know anything is possible in Excel, I just can't figure this one out.

I currently have a lot of times saved in an excel file that are in seconds for example 245.9 seconds. Need formula where i could have in the next cell to it where it would say 4 minutes 5.9 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.

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.

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.

Have a large spreadsheet with time posted in minutes, but is formatted as "general" not time. (ie 8.15 is the entry in general format. Needs to be 8.25 to pay employee correctly). What formula can I use to convert that 8.15 to 8.25 easily?

I have a consolidated sheet which I maintain to keep track of the scores of my team. Unfortunately from time to time, the format of all the cells is getting changed to "time" value. I do sometimes use an addin which I have downloaded from Straxx.com (excel password remover) and I am not sure if this add-in has anything to do with this.

I am having to change the format of almost 20+ columns every time this happens.

I have delay accounting software that can dump to Excel, but it puts the duration in the format "xdxhxm". It will display only as many digits as required, ie if it's 5minutes it will show "0d0h5m". If it's an hour and 45 minutes, it will show "0d1h45m" etc. I'm looking for a formula that will convert these to minutes so I can sum the events.

I found a similar formula, but it only worked if there was a space between number and letter and I don't understand the formulas well enough to fix that.

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

Is there a way to format cells so 24 hour time may be input without the colon, as an example 1425 instead or 14:25? We can do it in Access. One would think it possible in Excel, yet I have not discover how if indeed its possible.
