#### dividing a number into hours and minutes

```My users are entering numbers into column B.  Is it possible to take the
total of column B (say Row X) and divide it into hours and minutes putting
the hours in Row X Column D and minuntes in Row X Column E (two seperate
cells)?  They are entering just numbers in multiples of 5 and usually not
more than 30 minutes.  Do I need to convert Column B to some form of 'time'
to get close to the result I'm looking for?  Is this even doable?
```

```Try this...

In D1, enter   =INT(B1/60)
In E1, enter   =MOD(B1,60)

In this example, Row X is row 1.

Hope this helps,

Hutch

Avoid user having to enter 00 hours when using [mm]:ss format

When the RMS Manager informs us that the PO number is RMS will create one for you. How can we reset the auto numbering for PO's to a lower number for blank POs?
