Adding A Colon ( : ) To Convert A Standard Number Into A Time Format 
Adding A Colon ( : ) To Convert A Standard Number Into A Time Format  Excel 

Is there a way to enter a colon into a standard number to create a value that can be formatted into a 24 hour time value ?
eg a time is listed as 1345 with a general number format, and I want it returned as 13:45 witha custom format of hh:mm.
Other than creating a table and using a vlookup function, I am hoping there is a better way?

24 hour format i.e. 15:00. How can I do this?
Cell B5: start time: 4:15 formatted as 4:15:00 am
Cell B6: finish time: 6:15 formatted as 6:15:00 am
Cell B7: total time: 2:00 formula in cell: =TEXT(B6B5,"h:mm")
Cell B8: total batches processed: 22 (this is entered manually)
Cell B9: batches per hour: formula in cell: =B8/TEXT(B7,"h")
as long as I have this formula in cell B9 the answer comes out correct which should be 11 per hour.
If the formula in B9 is B8/B7, the answer is 264.0, Is this because of the way excel is reading the total time or the total time is formatted as a time, not an actual number? Is this the correct way to solve the problem?
answer should be 11 per hour.
For example: Cell A1 has a time format (hh:mm) value of 04:00; which is the Start Time. I would like cell D1 to have a text format value of "04:00" (result is dependant upon what is entered in A1). I would duplicate the same formulas to reflect Stop Times in other cells.
My final result is to have another cell (F1) use the Concatenate formula to have the Start and Stop time shown in one cell as "04:00  12:30". The times would change based on the Time formated values entered into the Start and Stop time cells.
I have researched this in the board and found many excellent ways to do the opposite, but not convert Time format to Text format. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

format/cells/number from the category list. But it won't take, and stays
textlike. Any ideas?
Please help!!!
We have a client who will pay using the 1/4, 1/2/ and 3/4 of an hour increments as follows:
From the hour mark to 6 minutes = 0 time paid
Over 7 minutes to 15 minutes = 1/4 hour 15
16 minutes to 30 minutes = 1/2 hour 30
30 minutes to 45 minutes = 3/4 hour 45
46 minutes to 60 minutes = one hour.
They work on shifts and the operation is 24 hours. Each gets 30 minutes for breaks which is not paid. Pay is biweekly and overtime is anything over 40 hours. Currently, the template we are using looks like this (sorry, I could not figure out how to paste it so you can see it in Excel layout):
WEEK 1 Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
5/16 5/17 5/18 5/19 5/20 5/21 5/22

I am very new to Excel and need help creating a formula that will allow us to calculate this timesheet? I am in desperate need for help.
Thanks..
Cells accept hours over 23,
Adding cells in column returns correct total time.
Have not found a way to multiply these cells by a $ hourly rate.
So use HOUR(cell ref) and MINUTE(cell ref) to capture values in referenced
cell  then use these values to calculate total payment for $rate per hour.
However, the HOUR(cell ref) formula returns the hours in excess of 24 when
the cell contains an hour value in excess of 23 (ie 27 hours returns 3).
We will be building 8 "widgets" a day.
We will work 10 hours a day.
There is a 20 minute break at 9:20 am.
Production shuts down for lunch 30 minutes for lunch at 12:30.
Production starts at 6:00 am.
Here is what I can do.
Production cycle time = (10*60)30/8 or 71.25 minutes
If we start at 6:00 am, the first scheduled cycle completion time = TIME(6,0,0+71.25/1440)
My problem is when I am trying to use a logical "IF' statement to account for the 20 minute break or lunch and still calculate the end of each cycle time through the day I receive a number of error messages.
This is the formula I am trying to make work. I have the cell the formula is in, formatted with a "mm,ss" format.
=(IF(D4+G1/1440>9:20,(D4+G1)/24,(D4+G1+15)/1440))
I have included an attachment to help (a picture is worth a thousand words).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have bought a number of books in an attempt to figure this out, and I am still stumped
The call times are in the custom format h:mm, although it could easily be changed to an Excel time format. I'm using Excel 2002. I want the cell to have a different fill color if it falls within particular time frames.
Example: If the call came in between 22:00 and 23:59 color is light green.
If the call came in between 23:59 and 08:00 the color is yellow.
Example spreadsheet is attached.
Thanks in advance.
I am working with an Excel spreadsheet and saving it as a .csv file in order to upload to an application that parses out the .csv data as transactions. The system requires .csv files, so this is how I need to save my doc (with this extension). I have been successful at preventing Excel from coverting that long number into scientific format. I have saved as a TXT file, pasted the longer number and it displays correctly. That is all good. But I have to save as a .csv. So if I do that, close the Excel window, and then open again (as the .csv file), the numbers are back to being displayed in scientific format. I have tried creating an Excel doc from scratch and entering text in Text format, to see if this created a cleaner file. But again, the second I save as .csv, close the window and then open that file up again, that dang scientific format is back.
Does anyone have any idea of how to work around this? Once I have successfully gotten the numbers to display as the longchain number, how can I get them to "stick" so that they don't revert back to scientific format when I reopen the file?
Thanks so much for your help!
example;
8:00 to 8:07 = 8.0 hrs
8:08 to 8:23 = 8.25 hrs
8:24 to 8:38 = 8.5 hrs
8:39 to 8:53 = 8.75 hrs
8:53 to 8:59 = 9.0 hrs
I am having trouble writing an equation that would sum the clockin and clockout times (2 per day) and display the total time in these quarter hours and adding an additional hour if it is >= to *:53. Any help would be great.
... If the time 04:16 falls in the time range 04:00  04:29, than put a one (1) in the filed x...
... If the time 04:16 doesn't fall in the time range 04:00  04:29, than leave the x fiel empty
Any help is appreciated.
i have a column of numbers that we extracted from a database as whole numbers. for instance, 30 should be .30 and 100 should be 1.00. when i try to increase or decrease the decimal point it doesn't allow me to convert it to those positions.
would any one have a tip of how i can easily convert this? there are over 2000 entries in my excel spreadsheet so to do it manually would take a lot of time/effort.
thank you!
I have a dillemma here,
I have to create a schedule which incorporates lunches automatically (either half hour or 1hour lunches, depending on the circumstances).
The schedule only has time in and time out, but I need excel to automatically deduct the lunch break depending on the circumstance:
If you worked less than 6 hours = no lunch
If you worked more than 6 hours, but less than or equal to 8 hours = 0.5 hour lunch
If you worked more than 8 hours = 1 hour lunch
I am assuming the formula for this will be really long, but I have looked online everywhere and have not found ONE formula for it. I can't put lunch breaks seperately, so all I have to work with is Time in/out.
Also, I wouldn't be able to use military time, so I don't know how excel can assume that time in is in the morning, and time out is in teh evening and/or halfday.
If someone can help it would be greatlyyyy appreciated
Does anyone know a better way to do this?
Thanks in advance!
Can you please help me,
A1= time in
B1= time out
C1= time in
D1= time out
I want to calculate the late and under time,
Office start at 9:am w/30 mins Grace period,
The break time is one hour only, please include over breaktime in calculation.
End of office hours 6:00 pm, strickly no over time
I made a simple worksheet that we have been manually entering the time for employees, but there are too many errors (even with simple math). Can someone help me convert the time of ex: written 84:30 or 103 (meaning 8:00am to 4:30pm) where you have the total weekly hours? Right now I have a column for overtime. Is there a way to automatically calculate the over time also? The work day is 84:30 with a half hour lunch (lunch is not calculated into the hours, so you minus a half hour). 84:30 equals 8 hours. So, if a person works 8am to 6:30pm, how can I set it up where in the first row of time, I will type in 86:30pm. In the totals column to the far right, it will display 8 hours. In the (O.T.) column, it will display 2 hours.
This way, when I call in my payroll, I will have the total "regular" hours in one row and underneath, I will have the total overtime hours.
Or... does anyone have a better solution to keeping track of their hours?
Thanks!

I need help....I am working production scheduling with Start and End time but there is a lunch time and tea time. Is there any formula to calculate Start time to End time with excluding lunch time?
Here is example :
Lunch time :12:00pm to 1:00pm.
Duration Process :6 hours.
Start Time (8:00am)
End time (5:00 pm)
I need a formula to calculate from Start Time 8:00am and what is the End Time? with 1 hour lunch time...
