Excel - Converting Total Time hh.hh to HH:MM:SS

Asked By David on 22-Jun-07 11:04 AM
I have a total time of 56.50 hours I need to convert to HH:MM:SS (56:30:00)
total. Help, I have tried =Text(A1/24,h:mm:ss, this is not working for me.
Help, it is driving me crazy!

Option1:
=TEXT(A1/24,"[h]:mm")

Option2:
=A1/24
format as [h]:mm

first option outputs text that looks like time, and the second option
outputs time in excel format.  The brackets [] tell excel to output the total
hours instead of the time of day (ie at 24 hours it does not go back to 0:00).

Hi David

You need a set of quotes around the formatting.
Also, if you want to show values over 24 hours, it needs to be
[h]:mm:ss.

=TEXT(A1/24,"[h]:mm:ss")

I need the inverse - I need to change a total time, like 35:45:00 to a
decimal, 35.75.

Thanks in advance for the help.
