#### Date,Time Problem

```HI!!

We take the difference of two Date/Time Fields having Custom format and
Values like this

Start Date                           End Date               Cycle
Time

2/24/03 16:30                 3/25/03 10:11         689:41:41

m/d/yy h:mm                    m/d/yy h:mm           [h]:mm:ss

Now I want this Time to be taken as absolute Number expressing it as
Hours/Minutes, so that I can take such values for further analysis.
But as such it is not possible because Excel always show �Cycle time�
value (689:41:41) as �28/01/1900 17:41:41�,  and does not yield to any
arithmetic operations.
How I can use 689 Hours as a absolute value of time only, so that I can
do any arithmetic operations on it.

Thanks
```

```Hi

1 is a day in Excel, so 1 hour is 1/24. Multiply 689 hours by 24 to get the
"real number" 689.

```You could use a formula to determine the number of hours this represents.
Assume this data is in cells A2 and B2. Determine your cycle time with this
formula:

=DAY(B2-A2)*24+HOUR(B2-A2)

Now format this cell as General (Format, Cells, in the Number tab, select
General).

Calculate Years/Months Between Dates and then Average
We are using the formula =DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"y") & "." & DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"ym") to calculate the years and months from an employee hire date. Is there an easy way to average the years and months for a group of employees with the results of that formula? You could use: =AVERAGE(A1:A10*1) Array-entered, meaning press ctrl-shift-enter. But you could also just change your current formula to: =1*(DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"y") & "." & DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"ym")) Then just use: =AVERAGE(A1:A10) which is *not* array-entered. ...

Font problem
It seems that the Cambria Math font has recently acquired an extremely large Ascent and Descent.

Post Dated Checks
I had to prepare some post dated checks and we did not have fiscal periods set up yet to match the dates of the checks. Currently the check batches are waiting to be posted.

strange date format problem
Hi, I downloaded some data on excel using Bloomberg. One column has dates and the other has numbers. Dates appear as 01/01/1980 format which I want in Jan-80 format.

I cant even copy paste format after that .... TIA/amag I am not sure, but is your workbook set to Auto-Recalculate? Try pushing <F9> to do a manual re-calculation, see if that changes the formats.

How to sort by name then date?
I would like to look through all the emails to a particular person. If I click on the "To" column I can see all the emails to a particular person (actually there is a problem with that which I will mention next) but they seem to be in random order. Is there a way to have them sorted by date? (i.e. by name first, then by date). Actually, sorting on the "To" column does not get all the emails sent to a given email address. Because Outlook uses the "display as" field. It will often give different "display as" names to the same email address. C...

Multiple Accounts problem

Concatenate including a date so that the date appears as a date

I have tried changing the cell formats - probably there is a combination that works but I haven't found it. I also tried copying the original date cell to another cell and changing the latter cell's format and concatenating using that latter cell, but still no success. Use the TEXT function. For example, =TEXT(NOW(),"mmmm d, yyyy") would give January 6, 2010 "dd...

443 routing problems
Hi, We have our e-mail working fine through our Local Education Network. Our mail A records point to the LEA mail forwarding server and mail arrives here before being forwarded on the WAN to our Exchange 2003 mail server (which was installed today). So our mail domain yggwyr.swansea.sch.uk both accepts and sends e-mail without any problems. The LEA will not allow us access on Port 443 to our Exchange server. The politics behind this are not for here, but to combat this we had a seperate ADSL line installed and we now use our Netgear router to forward port 443 to the Exchange server - ...

An uneven time-increment
Dear all, If in a spreadsheet you have years 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2050 with associated data for each year, how do you produce a line graph of this without 2050 being positioned at the same interval on the x-axis as the difference between the other years? To clarify, because the difference between 2050 and 1990 is greater than the difference between the previous years (all 1), how do get Excel to represent this on the x-axis of a line graph?
