#### Change Time in a Cell from [hh]:mm to decimal value ie 16:45 - 16.

```Here lies the problem.  I'm cheap, I want to be paid for every minute that I
work,  I do the time cards for work and I'm using Excel to perform the
functions.  I have no problem with adding and subtracting the times in single
cells or totalling all of the time.  If I come up with a person having 47
hours and 13 minutes how do I get Excel to convert 47:13 to 47.22 so that I
can then multiply the 40 by hourly rate and the 7.22 by 1.5 the hourly rate ?

```Hi!

This all depends on how you have things setup.

To convert 47:13 to 47.22 just multiple 47:13*24.

If 47:13 is the result of a formula:

=SUM(A1:A7)

Then:

=SUM(A1:A7)*24 returns: 47.21667

So, if you want 47.22 then you'll have to round:

=ROUND(SUM(A1:A7)*24,2)

Again, this all depends on your setup!!!!

Assume that formula is in A10.

For the regular hours (<=40)

=MIN(A10,40)*regular_rate

For OT (>40)

=MAX(A10-40,0)*OT_rate

```this is the solution I found in one of these newsgsroups

for e.g. a1
47:13:00

now in B1 type
=a1*24
and then FORMAT B1 as GENERAL (or some numeric format) -Not as time

you will get
47.21666667

Excel VB-Copy formula down until adjacent cell (left) is blank?
Here is exactly what I am trying to do through VB in Excel: Weekly data pull fills colums A:G. Row count is always different.

Hi all, Here's my problem. I've got a set of Excel files with monthly data which is updated every month. So in January I only have Jan data. In February I have Jan and Feb data, and so on.

Read Online Statement -- All the Time in Money 2006?
I just upgraded to Money 2006 from the '04 edition. It appears that it always wants me to "Read Online Statement" for all of my investment accounts, even though there's been no actual transactions in the funds. I think all that's changed is the price of the fund or stock for the day. I don't think earlier versions worked this way, and it seems odd that it asks mne to Read the Online Statement after doing nothing than grabbing the day's latest prices. Is this what everyone is experiencing, and am I the only way to find this odd? Thanks, Paul Pinella Radar Media G...

Q: Referencing named cells in external worksheet ?
Using Excel 2002. I have a workbook with 12 worksheets (one for every month of the year), wherein a lot of the information is looked-up (using VLOOKUP) in simples arrays. I saw no point in implementing the arrays as a 13th worksheet, because I will have a yearly version of my monthly worksheets in one workbook (so one for 2003, 2004, etc). If I change the array(s), I want them to be reflected in all referencing cells. Problem: If my workbook containing my arrays (called "Global") is loaded, I have no problem and the references to it read as: (blabla) 'Global.xls'!Roster ...

how do i change days in a year to 365
How do I chage Excel's standard of 360 days in a year to be 365, for functions such as Days360 and other methods of figuring out how many days occur between 2 dates? The number of days between two dates can be calculated by direct subtraction. For example, if A1 contains 1/1/2004 and A2 contains 1/1/2005 and you enter the formula =A2-A1 in another cell, the result will be 366 (formated as an integer). -- Gary's Student "tripjules" wrote: > How do I chage Excel's standard of 360 days in a year to be 365, for > functions such as Days360 and other methods o...

Visible cell characters
Can I increase the # of characters that are visible in a cell? 67 Excel Help on "limits" or "specifications" reveals that Excel will allow 32,767 characters to be entered in a cell. However, it goes on to state that "only 1024 characters will be visible or can be printed" To work around this limitation, stick a few ALT + ENTERs in at appropriate spots. The ALT + ENTER forces a line-feed and expands the 1024 limit. How far is not really known. Just experiment. .........From Dave Peterson.......... I put this formula in A1: ="xxx"& REPT(REPT(&...

why does wrord change the origianl date when I open a saved doc
I do not want word to change the date of a saved doc when i open it I assume that the reason is that you have inserted a date field which shows the system date.
