# Turning General Numbers Into Time And Minutes And Multiplying For Month

Mar 3, 2014
I run a report from a scheduling software that gives me the total hours and minutes for a weekday for my bus routes. For instance, 253 hours and 23 minutes for one day. Now though, I need to calculate how many hours and minutes for the entire month. The report will only come out with 253h23. I need to somehow take that, turn it into time and then multiply it by 20 (January weekdays). But I need real hours and minutes and I'm having trouble getting them.

Usually this question is asked the other way around, but I have a somewhat unique problem. A certain website gives out tables filled with numbers. Positive numbers show in black font and negative numbers show in red font, but unfortunately, negative numbers do not include the minus sign -- the font is red and that's it!

I need a macro (or any other solution) that will turn the red font numbers to negative ones and would possibly format the cell to show negative numbers in red (I guess the last part is easier). The main problem is searching for the red font numbers and turning them negative.

I'd like automate consists of entering 56 numbers (up to 3 digits, 000-999) and finding the difference between today's numbers and yesterday's numbers. Then multiplying each difference by a set number (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20, or 25). These numbers may, from time to time change (i.e. the 32nd entered number may be multiplied by 3 for 2 months, then we might swap out a product and then need to multiply by 5, etc). At the end, I need all 56 differences multiplied by their individual respective multipliers totaled. This needs to be done daily using previous days numbers and be able to change the multiplier without effective previous data.

I was trying to to this myself by Column 1 = multipliers, Column 2 = yesterdays' numbers and Column 3 = today's numbers. The calcualtions are done by excel and a total is summed. This I can do. However, each day i'd need to make a new file and enter yesterday's and today's numbers. This is time consuming. I'd like a system where I can just entere today's numbers and any changes to the multiplier and it will spit out the total.

If anyone can guide me or point me in any direction to accomplish this automation. I would greatly appreciate it. I'm pretty computer savvy, but just have not had the time to dwell into Excel.

For those interested in what this is for: I have a small business that sells instant lottery tickets. Each day we have to figure out the number of tickets sold the previous day. We have a notebook and manually write down numbers, do the substractions by a calculator and total. The table in the notebook is seperated by ticket values (i.e. $1 tickets, $5 tickets, etc). However, certain tickets run out or occasionally we need to move tickets to a different spot, thus the MULTIPLIER in the automated system would need to change.

Looking for a formula to convert time (00:00:00 AM) to a general 4 digit number (0000). Example 08:30:00 AM ---> 0830. Tried using format cells but no luck.

I was able to convert a standard number to time using the following formula: =TIME(INT(H2/100),MOD(H2,100),0)

I'm trying to make an excel formula that generalizes product names based on their format. So the general format would be XYZ08/T13. I know a ? is equal to a general letter, but is their a symbo that specifically means letter or number. I'm running into problems using the ? because the formula ends up identifying additional items that are not products as products.

I use software that exports date/time stamps in the format of: MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss.s

I like to keep the data in this general format so that we can keep it consistent and it can be useful to others using other software.

I recently had to do some date/time stamp manipulations where I added 61 days to a dataset because the data was erroneously set to a diferent calendar. (Still don't know how that happened but it isn't relevent to this issue) When I set up a formula to add 61 days, it appears that it automatically converted it to the excel serial date/time format before adding the 61 days. Now I have a column of data that is mostly general format but has this portion in serial format. How can I get the serial format changed back to general so that the entire column is in the same format?

I have created a simple spreadsheet to keep track of work hours. I simply enter in each days hours and then I get a total. I have each cell formatted for time (hh:mm). However it is annoying to have to type in the colon for each days time.

Is there a way I can just type in the three digits '9,3,0' into the cell and have it come out as '9:30'?

I populated an XL sheet from another one using a formula. However, in order to use my new sheet I need all the cells to be numbers and not formulas. Is there a way to turn all the formulas into numbers, leaving behind just the numerical value ? Basically like pasting only values, only without having have to paste them somewhere else.

I'm trying to convert some data which excel is reading as text into numbers for example I have:

[Code] ......

All the numbers I've imported from an app analytics company into excel which are greater than 1.0 appear as numbers (to the right side of the cell) and all the numbers less than 1.0 appear as text (to the left side of the cell). I want all the numbers appearing as text to appear as numbers so I can multiply them with other cells.

I've clicked format cells - number but this has no effect. I click format cells -protection - unlocked but this has no effect.

I have thousands of rows with all numbers less than 1.0 as text instead of numbers. What's the easiest way to mass convert them all to numbers seeing as the above options haven't worked.

I don't want to have to click through thousands of rows to edit it manually...

I am trying to provide a tool for department leaders to monitor productivity for order processing in their departments. The variables I have are: Number of orders(variable), number of pickers (variable), start time(variable). Then, I know each order takes 1 picker 4 minutes to pick on average, and there are 45 minutes worth of breaks during the picking process. So after entering the variables I used =(((C3*4)/60)/D3) to come up with the time needed to process the orders. What I can't get to is how to add this number to the start time, factor in break minutes and get to the projected completion time. I have Excel 2003 at work. Clearly I need to take a class!

I am trying to write an array formula that will work out how many minutes of tickets are open within a particular month. I have a formula shown on the first table which calculates how many minutes a ticket is open for within a particular month, but this only works for an individual ticket, Basically I neet to populate the 2nd table with an array formula that will calculate the number of minutes within the month that numerous tickets are open, effectively a SUMPRODUCT but I can't get it to work.

The right hand side of Table one doesn't exist in my main file, I am trying to populate the 2nd table using only the first four columns within Table 1.

I have made a form with a calender control, a keypad for hours and minutes. I have no problem getting the date from the active cell into a label caption and changing it by the calender, but I am having trouble reading just the hour and minutes into separate label captions from the active cell and changing them via the keypad and updating the active cell at the same time with a new date and time.

I have been racking my brains about this for the last hour without any joy. If I have a time value of say 01:12:00 in cell A1 (which is the difference between two other time values), but I want it displayed in minutes, so it displays 72 or 72:00 instead of 01:12:00 (which is 1 hour 12 minutes),

My data sheet has a Month column, and those months are simply numbers one to twelve. They are formatted as plain old numbers. The data is coming from somewhere outside Excel.

How the numbers look in the data sheet doesn't matter. But I use this data to generate pivots, wherein the months are the columns. I want it to say Jan, Feb, etc. across the top of the pivot.

I realize that I could just loop through the raw data and convert the numbers to text. However, I want the pivot table to recognize this data as dates, so that I can do date-related stuff, such as the date grouping described on p. 85 of Jelen's Pivot Table Data Crunching book.

If I go into the raw data and try to convert the cells to the mmm format, they all convert to January.

I'm aware that formatting doesn't translate from raw data to pivot table anyhow. But it's not clear to me how I can use the date field grouping functions without somehow showing Excel that these are dates. Or is the pivot table smart enough to realize that just by the names, even if they are formatted as text?

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 have applied the excel suggestion to no success. Currently I take the hour and minutes and then manually use a time conversion chart to add. 3:00 PM to 4:10 PM will reflect 1:10 but adding time should convert to 1:17 (in 100ths)

I know how to do this in a worksheet: =(b1-a1)*1440. B1 being the end time and A1 being the start time. I have a userform where the start time and end time are entered in text boxes. txtstart1 and txtend1. I would like the result to show up in txtmin1. Here is my code that doesnt work. I tried to convert code from a non-time sheet of mine. Dim as Integer may be the problem, I just learn as I go, and so far have only dealt with Integers.

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.
