Time formatting #3

Just a quick question one of my calculations returns a length of tim
in hours in a decimal format. I was wondering if there was a way t
format the cell so that for example if the figure 53.5 was returne
then the cell would display the value 53:30
(for 53 hours 30 minutes). the best that i can get so far is using "
?/60" to return:
53 30/60
This isn't as neat as i would like. I have tried the date/tim
formatting options but they only seem to return things like 12:00:00.
Any ideas

Don't think it can be done as the decimal part refers to parts of 60, not
parts of 10/100/1000 etc, so it needs a conversion, which isn't a natural
facet of formatting.

I do not think there is any format, but you can create something like
it. If you assume the result of your calculations is in cell A1, then
In cell A2 write:
In stead of "A1" you can write your calculation, but then it can get a
little complicated

Excel Time Problem
I exported a file from a telephone switch reporting system as a "tab separated text" file, because when I export the data in Excel I have to deal with merged cells and other formatting problems. I have a couple of columns that have time values like 160:02:05 for logged in time, and 34:16:46 as the waiting dime� Both are time �DURATIONS� or time in a state. I used the Format, Cell, custom and [ss] to get the duration value to seconds, and I get 123406 and 576125 respectively. I then use these numbers in a calculation typically like 1338 / (576125 - 123406) and I get 219 as the an...

default mail format based on domain

kill formatting brought over from reports
When I export a report from various sources (crystal reports or an Access Database that has an option to send to Excel), the worksheet format buttons stop working, or work erratically depending on something that must be coming over. Also, sometimes I get a sheet sent to me from someone who has done weird formatting, and it overrides my buttons (where the $ sign button produces some custom symbol, for example). I can copy the detail and paste to another worksheet, where the buttons will work, but is there a way to tell Excel to ignore this type of menu change when it receives a spreadsh...

Incompatible file format.
Have been using Money for years and have Money Deluxe 2007 installed on both my home (Vista) machine and my notebook (XP) machine. Problem is when I go on the road and take my Money file with me, my XP machine says that the file is incompatible and was created with a newer or updated version of Money. Both machines have the same version and are both include the latest updates. What gives? Did Microsoft create something in Vista that precludes using the Money file under any other operating system?

CRM 3 - User Transfered All Cases to Own Name
We had a user that left the company. Another user transfered all of his cases (resolved / active) to his name. He some how reassigned all the resolved and active cases in the DB to his own name. Is there a transaction table for changes to cases? Or a way that we can roll back the transfers? Unfortunately, we do not have a back up. CRM does not offer a transaction logging sollution out of the box. The SQL database does, but this has to be configured and can only rollback all changes not specific ones. A thing you can try is (using the SDK) retrieve the last activity for each case ...

I've reviewed the posts and tips relating to time, but haven't found an EXACT answer to what I'm trying to do. Like one of the other posters, I keep an hourly logbook. I might enter a start time as 23:30 zulu, and an end time of 01:15 zulu. In this case, the time difference should equal 1:45, and then converted to tenths should be 1.8. When I'm not starting and ending on a different zulu day, I'm able to get the function to work perfectly. BUT HERE'S THE RUB.
