would really appreciate anyones help with this.
I have a column full of textformatted fractions...
4/5
6/4
3/1
2/5
4/5
etc, etc.....the column is very long!!
I need to convert these to actual fractions...ones I can add to equations, allowing me to multiply and add.
If I highlight the column and goto "format Cells" and change to fraction, the values still stay in the left of the cell.....its only when I manually click on each individual cell, then tick the little green tick, does the cell validate, and the value in the cell moves to the right (and is therefore a proper value).....problem is I have to keep doing this for each individual cell.....and I have 70000+ cells in this column!
Any suggestions on how I could speed this up?
thanks
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..
Received Date & Time: 10/29/2010 3:27:00 PM
Completed Date & Time: 11/1/2010 3:57:32 AM
Business Hours: 08:00 AM to 05:00 PM
Non Business hours: 05:00 PM to 08:00 AM
Weekdays : Monday to Friday
Weekends: Saturday & Sunday
If I calculate TAT for this time period it should show me 1 hour 33 minutes, why because business hours are closing by 5:00 PM on 10/29 so it should not calculate duration after 5:00 PM to until 08:00 AM on next day, however 10/29 is Friday so formula should calculate the duration from 10/29 Friday 3:37 PM to 10/29 5:00 PM and again it should calculate from 8:00 AM on 11/01 Monday and formula should skip Saturday & Sunday.
In this scenario I have completed the task before 8:00 AM on 11/01 so it should show duration of 1hour 33 minutes.
Please let me know if you need any more details
When I try to replace all commas (with nothing or with another character), I get the error message "The formula you typed contains an error."
I have tried various formats (text, general, etc.) and various file types (.xls,.xlsx, .csv) and still get the same error.
B value Time of day punch in: 9:30 AM
C value =IF(D11="","","")
D value Time of Day punch out: 6:00 PM
E value =IF(D11="","",IF(D11
I have a figure 4,929,524,832 in excel. I want excel to automatically covert this figure into millions/billions/trillions. I tried through 'format cells' but there was no option for this.
Any help?

In range A1:D10, I have entered the figures in actuals (e.g. 34532642.45,
78945624.89 etc.). How can I convert those figures in Lakhs / Thousands /
Crores? Before converting, Can Excel 2000 prompt me for conversion in Lacs /
Thousands / Crores?
inbetween the two dates. Does anyone know how to then convert the number of
days into months?
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
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
Please can someone help me. How do I create an IF formula to find cells where the number of hours in one cell is more than the number of hours in another cell? eg one cell has 0.40 hrs and another has 02.25 hours  I want have an IF formula to say where 02.25hrs > 0.40 then type "FAILED" but I cant overcome the greater than problem on the hours which is giving me the wrong answer.
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 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.
I'm working with Excel 2003 sp 3 on Windows xp.
I have been banging my head trying to jar loose the formula to calculate man days where 1 equals 8 hours. I have one that was given to me by a coworker:
=INT(Q3/8)+(((Q3/8)(INT(Q3/8)))*0.8)
That calculates man days from total hours. I need a formula that will total man days and return the man day answer. Example:
weekending 12/25 = 16.2 which is 16 man days and 2 hours
weekending 1/1 = 24.7 which is 24 man days and 7 hours
Total = 41 man days and 1 hour
I have also been asked if there was a way for a number to be entered into a spreadsheet and automatically put in order without a macro or "pushing a button".
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Happy New Year!

For example, if I have a total of 53 calls and the total talk time is 4:19:05, what would the average talk per call be? I tried doing everything in seconds (this would give me a total of 15545 seconds) but the total I was getting is 4:89.
What would the formula be to get the correct average time?
worksheet. The first column of the table is a list of numbers. I tried
converting the table into text with manual line breaks and tab stops to
divide columns and rows, but that didn't solve my problem.
Excel pastes the data into several rows. When I try to merge them, I
get a warning that the selection contains multiple data values, and
merging into one cell keeps the upperleft most data only.
What I tried that didn't work:
* Formatting the Excel cells as text before pasting the data.
* The various options for "Paste Special." The closest I got was
inserting the table as a Document Object, which could be a workaround,
I guess.
What I am saving for when all else fails:
* The obvious solution of copying row by row into one Excel cell.
The data in the table is information about my dad's medications. I
would like to have reference charts of how to identify the strength of
each tablet by its color and markings. I got the info from the
manufacturers' websites and entered it into tables in Word, which I
would like to copy into a more comprehensive file I am creating in
Excel. The first column of each table is the strength of the tablet,
entered as 1 mg., 2 mg., etc. The subsequent columns describe the
shape, color, and markings. There are 3 tables, each with about 45
rows.
Is there a way to copy each one  whether as a table or as text  into
a single Excel cell without losing data?
Many thanks.
I want to calculate the total time worked such that i have the hours worked. So if i worked 7 hours and 30min then the total time would be 7.5hrs. But i am not sure how to take into account the lunch break time (see enclosed sheet).
anyone have any ideas?
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).
