#### Time to dollars

```I have a schedule that works really well to calculate how many total hours
per employee, but when I want to add a column that multiplies the total hours
by an rate per hour, the result isn't right--it comes out in the form of
time.  If I have a cell that results in 32:00:00 total hours and have that
multiplied by say 7 dollars per hour the answer comes out as 224:00:00.  I
need to use the result in other labor cost calculations, but it wont' work as
a time.  Is there a way to make that into a number (e.g. 224 )?  I need to be
able to divied the 224:00:00 result by a number equal to total revenue and
derive a percentage.  Any ideas?

Thanks people.

Rudy

```Thanks Jason, but that only converts the first answer of 224:00:00 to
9.3333333.

The schedule has times entered in and out 3:00pm to 11:00pm, then sums each
day up for a total of 32:00:00.  I've made another cell do the multiplication
of 32:00:00 x 7 (the employee's hourly rate of pay) which gives a result of
224:00:00.  Since all the results are in time, I can't divide to get a proper
ratio.  Changing the results cells format to anything else won't give me
total time.  I'm stuck in a catch 22.

```No you are not stuck in catch 22

=cell_with_32:00*24*7

formatted as general returns 224 as expected

224:00:00 formatted as general returns 9.3333333
you need to multiply by 24 as well

```Thanks everybody......EVERYTHING WORKS!!!!!  Now my managers who don't
understand where the "any key" is can turn in a shcedule without a bunch of
"VALUE" in the total fields.  Thank you all very much.

Formatting cells with Time data
I'm trying to set up my spreadsheet to format my cells to hhmm, but every time I try to enter data into the cells, the system automatically converts the hours I've entered into a date and leaves the time value at 0 any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

Time functions #2
Hi, I have to do some time calculations and I have a formula that outputs in minutes and I have to subtract a standard time to this number of minutes. For example, I have 8:00 AM in one cell and 20.68 minutes on an other cell. The output that I am expecting is 7:39 AM. Does anybody know how to bring an output like that by subtracting the minutes? Please help. Thanks With 8:00 AM in A1 and 20.68 in B1, use this formula =A1-B1/(24*60) Why does it work? Because Excel stores time as a fraction of a day. We convert minutes to days by dividing by 24*60 (24 hr/day and 60 min/hr) You could just u...
