#### Cells with time format and calculating the diffrence

``` I have formatted 2 cells say A1 and B1 as time and chose the first type
being in the form 13:30 - This shows up in the equation line as 1:12:00 PM.
So I type in 13:12 and I get what is required BUT is there a way that I can
type 1312 without having to put the ':' in? and still get it to produce the
time equation format for my 3 rd cell C1 which will be to calculate the
minutes difference between the 2 first cells eg. 13:12 and 13:20 giving the
3rd cell as 0:08 . I have used =+B1-A1 for the C1 cell.

Also the other thing is that when I wish to calculate the minutes between
the 2 times eg 13:00 and 14:00, I get 1:00 as the answer but I need to have
the minutes i.e 60. How can I format this or do I need to write a script/
macro of some sort?

Use an extra input column (say Z) and format it as text, and apply this
formula in your time column A and B:
=TIMEVALUE(LEFT(Z1,2)&":"&RIGHT(Z1,2))

If you enter "1312" in Z1 then A1 will show 13:12 as a real XL time value.

Use custom format [mm]

```Cheers Stefi- Tell me though - I am happy not to have the cell as 13:30 at
all and just be able to type 1330 as I knw I mean it as 24 hour time -SO LONG
AS - the minutes calculated in the third cell is the difference between the
first two times. so again I want to type 1330 in A1 and 1415 in B1 and have
the C1 calculate the difference as minutes?

How may I do this?

Happy New Year

```One way,

=TEXT(B1,"00\:00")-TEXT(A1,"00\:00")

format as [hh]:mm will return 00:45

if you want minutes as integers multiply the result with 1440 and format as
General

```Thats brilliant Peo- I appreciate all the help- Tell me though why the cell
that I copied the formula you gave  =TEXT(B1,"00\:00")-TEXT(A1,"00\:00")
produces the C1 and C2 area as a grey shaded area with the answer ?

```And could I * the cell c1 by 1440 ? as in
=TEXT(P8,"00\:00")-TEXT(O8,"00\:00")*1440
I have tried and I know this is not correct - what is missing?

```I have no idea why, the formula certainly won't do it, maybe you have some
conditional formatting applied somewhere?

```You need to enclose the whole formula in parentheses like in

=(TEXT(P8,"00\:00")-TEXT(O8,"00\:00"))*1440

after that it is important to format as general or number, NOT time
