*The tutorial demonstrates different ways to convert time to decimal in Excel. You will find a variety of formulas to change time to hours, minutes or seconds as well as convert text to time and vice versa.*

Because Microsoft Excel uses a numeric system to store times, you can easily turn hours, minutes and seconds into numbers that you can use in other calculations.

In general, there are two ways to convert time to decimal in Excel - by changing the cell format and by using arithmetic calculations or Excel time functions, such as HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND. Further on in this tutorial, you will find the detailed explanation of the first way and formula examples demonstrating the other technique.

## How to convert time to decimal number in Excel

Overall, there are three ways to change a time value to a decimal number: arithmetic operation, CONVERT function or a combination of three different Time functions.

The easiest way to convert time to decimal in Excel is to multiply the original time value by the number of hours, seconds or minutes in a day:

- To convert time to a number of
**hours**, multiply the time by 24, which is the number of hours in a day. - To convert time to
**minutes**, multiply the time by 1440, which is the number of minutes in a day (24*60). - To convert time to
**seconds**, multiply the time time by 86400, which is the number of seconds in a day (24*60*60 ).

In the following sections, you will learn the other methods of converting times to a decimal number in Excel.

### How to convert time to hours in Excel

This section demonstrates 3 different formulas to convert hours from the standard time format (hh:mm:ss) to a decimal number.

#### Formula 1: Arithmetic calculation

You already know the fastest way to convert a time value to a number of hours in Excel - multiplying by 24, i.e. by the number of hours in one day:

`=A2*24`

Where A2 is the time value.

To get the number of **compete hours**, embed the above formula in the INT function that will get rid of the fractional part:

`=INT(A2*24)`

#### Formula 2: CONVERT function

Another way to perform the "time > hours" conversion is to use the following Convert formula:

`=CONVERT(A2, "day", "hr")`

#### Formula 3: HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions

Finally, you can use a bit more complex formula, whose logic, however, is quite obvious. Extract the individual time units by using the HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions, then divide minutes by 60 (the number of minutes in an hour) and seconds by 3600 (the number of seconds in an hour), and add up the results:

`=HOUR(A2) + MINUTE(A2)/60 + SECOND(A2)/3600`

### How to convert time to minutes in Excel

The same three methods can be used to convert minutes from the standard time format to a decimal number.

#### Formula 1: Arithmetic calculation

To convert time to total minutes, you multiply time by 1440, which is the number of minutes in one day (24 hours * 60 minutes = 1440):

`=A2*1440`

If you want to return the number of **compete minutes**, utilize the INT function like in the previous example:

`=INT(A2*1440)`

You can view the results in the screenshot below:

#### Formula 2: CONVERT function

To do the "time > minutes" conversion with the CONVERT(number, from_unit, to_unit) function, supply "day" as the unit to convert from and "mn" as the unit to convert to:

`=CONVERT(A2, "day", "mn")`

#### Formula 3: HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions

One more way to get the number of minutes is to multiply hours by 60 and divide seconds by the same number:

`=HOUR(A2)*60 + MINUTE(A2) + SECOND(A2)/60`

### How to convert time to seconds in Excel

Converting time to total seconds in Excel can be done in a similar fashion.

#### Formula 1: Arithmetic calculation

Multiply the time value by 86400, which is the number of seconds in a day (24 hours * 60 minutes * 60 seconds = 86400):

`=A2*86400`

#### Formula 2: CONVERT function

The formula is basically the same as in the above examples with the only difference that you convert the "day" unit to "sec":

`=CONVERT(A2, "day", "sec")`

#### Formula 3: HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions

Use the HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions like in the two previous examples (I believe at this point you don't need any further explanation of the formula's logic :)

`=HOUR(A2)*3600 + MINUTE(A2)*60 + SECOND(A2)`

Tips:

- If any of the above formulas returns a value formatted as time, simply change the cell's format to
**General**to display it as a number. - To convert time to a decimal number that represents the time in the internal Excel system, apply the
*General*format to the cell. With this approach, 23:59:59 will be converted to 0.99999, 06:00 AM to 0.25, and 12:00 PM to 0.5. If an integer part of the converted number is greater than zero, it means that your cell contains both date and time values.

## How to split date and time in Excel

As is often the case, your Excel worksheet may contain dates and times in one cell, while you want to split them into two separate cells.

Remembering that in the internal Excel system the date value is stored as a whole part and the time value as a fractional part of a decimal number, you can extract the date using the INT function, which rounds the cell value down to the nearest integer.

Supposing your original dates and times are in column A, the following formula will accomplish the separation:

`=INT(A2)`

To extract the time portion, subtract the date returned by the above formula from the original date and time value:

`=A2-B2`

Where column A contains the original date & time values and column B contains the dates returned by the INT function.

If you'd rather not have time values linked to the separated dates (for example, you may want to remove the date column in the future), you can use the following MOD formula that refers to the original data only:

`=MOD(A2,1)`

Tip. If the separated date and time values are not displayed properly, change the format of the new columns to Date and Time, respectively.

This is how you split date and time in Excel. If you want to further separate hours, minutes and seconds into individual columns, then use the HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions, as demonstrated in How to get hours, minutes and seconds from a timestamp.

## How to spell time in Excel

Sometimes, you may need to convert time into the format that reads something like "*# days, # hours, # minutes and # seconds"*. A good thing is that you already know all the ingredients of the formula:

- Extract days using the INT function;
- Extract time units with HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions, and
- Concatenate all parts in a single formula.

Having difficulties with figuring out a proper formula for your worksheet? The following example will make things easy!

Supposing you have the dates of upcoming events in column B beginning in cell B4, and the current date and time returned by the NOW() function in cell B1.

The formula to calculate the time difference is as simple as `=B4-$B$1`

. Of course, nothing prevents you from subtracting the current date and time directly with `=B4-NOW()`

.

And now, let's make a countdown timer that would show how many days, hours, minutes and seconds are left until each event.

The formula to enter in cell D4 is as follows:

`=INT(C4) & " days, " & HOUR(C4) & " hours, " & MINUTE(C4) & " minutes and " & SECOND(C4) & " seconds"`

If you wish to get rid of 0 values, like in cells D6 and D7 in the screenshot above, then include the following IF statements:

`=IF(INT(C4)>0, INT(C4)&" days, ","") & IF(HOUR(C4)>0, HOUR(C4) & " hours, ","") & IF(MINUTE(C4)>0, MINUTE(C4) & " minutes and ","") & IF(SECOND(C4)>0, SECOND(C4) & " seconds","")`

All zeros are gone!

Note. When either of the above formulas refers to a negative number, the #NUM! error will appear. This may happen when you subtract a bigger time from a smaller one.

An alternative way to write time in words in Excel is to apply the following custom time format to the cell: *d "day," h "hours," m "minutes and" s "seconds"*. No formulas and no calculations are required! For more information, please see Creating a custom time format in Excel.

## Convert text to time in Excel

If your time formulas and calculations do not work right, time values formatted as text is often the cause. The fastest way to convert text to time in Excel is using the TIMEVALUE function.

The Excel TIMEVALUE function has just one argument:

**Time_text** is a text string in any of the time formats that Excel can recognize. For example:

`=TIMEVALUE("6:20 PM")`

`=TIMEVALUE("6-Jan-2015 6:20 PM")`

`=TIMEVALUE(A2)`

where A2 contains a text string

As you see, the formulas with cell references and corresponding text strings deliver identical results. Also, please notice the left alignment of time strings (text values) in cells A2 and A6 and right-aligned converted time values in column D.

## Convert time to text in Excel

Supposing you have an Excel file full of times formatted to look like "8:30:00 AM" and you want to convert them to the text format. Simply changing the cell's format to TEXT won't work because this would change your time values to underlying numeric representation of the time. For example, 8:30:00 AM will be converted to decimal 0.354166666666667.

So, how do you convert cells to the text format so that your cells still have the time in them? The answer is to use the TEXT function that converts a numeric value to text with the display formatting that you specify, for example:

`=TEXT($A2,"h:mm:ss")`

The screenshot below demonstrates other possible formats:

## How to convert numbers to time format in Excel

If you have a list of numbers such as 1, 2, 3.5 and you want to convert them to a time format, for example 1:00:00, 2:00:00 or 3:30 AM, perform the following steps.

- Divide the numbers by 24 (there are 24 hours in a day). The formula can be as simple as =A2/24.
- Select the cell(s) with the formula result, right-click and select
*Format Cells*from the context menu or press Ctrl+1. Either way, the*Format Cells*dialog will appear, you select*Time*on the left pane under*Category*, and choose the format you want on the right pane under*Type*. Please see How to format time in Excel for more details.

If your time exceeds 24 hours, 60 minutes, 60 seconds, use these guidelines to correctly show it.

That's all for today. If someone wants to get the first-hand experience with the formulas discussed in this article, you are most welcome to download the sample workbook below.

Hi

Wanting to do 'end time' - 'start time' in order to get travel time.

End time and start time are in 24hr clock format.

For example, end time is 1100 and start time is 1000. Thus 60 minutes. But I need a formula for this.

No AM / PM or : used.

Please help! I've read the above.

Hi!

I recommend reading this guide: Calculate time in Excel: time difference, add, subtract and sum times.

Nevermind. I figured it out. Used LEN and RIGHT functions to add : to all values then I used the formula you presented above.

Hey, I'm trying to convert 61:20:00 to decimal, but the formulas I'm finding online are not working because it's over 24 hours. Any tips on how to get it to work? I'm using Google Sheets.

Hi Rowan,

Please see this article: Convert time to decimal in Google spreadsheet

You can also check solutions here (including the comments): Calculating time in Google Sheets

Awesome! Found the solution in the first link. Thanks so much.

i have looked in the posts and can not get the following to work out. in column a i have "start time", b is "end time", c is "duration"and in column d i need it to be in minutes. ie - (start) 11:08 AM, (end) 3:20 PM, (duration) 4:12 - but can not get the results in minutes. Which formula do i need to convert duration to minutes?

my formula for duration is b3-a3 (formula is hh:mm

Hi!

I hope you have studied the recommendations in the tutorial above. Pay attention to the following paragraph of the article above - How to convert time to minutes in Excel

Hi,

I've received an excel sheet with the format of '# days # hours # mins' per cell in one column. Some cells have '# hours # mins' and others have just '# mins', all in the same column. I'm really stuck on how to convert all into mins without calculating each cell individually. Is there a formula I can apply to update this? Would really appeciate any direction!

Hello!

If I understand your task correctly, the following formula should work for you:

=IFERROR(--LEFT(A1,SEARCH("days",A1)-1),0)*1440+ IFERROR(--MID(A1,SEARCH("hours",A1)-3,3),0)*70+ IFERROR(--MID(A1,SEARCH("mins",A1)-3,3),0)

I hope my advice will help you solve your task.

Hi Alexander,

Thank you so much - it's working, I only need to add a '0' before the data that reads as '2 hours 30 mins' etc, so it's '02 hours 30 mins', otherwise it won't work on those cells. But this is wonderful, thank you! so much faster than what I was working on before!

Hi Amy, is there a formula that could fix this? Running into the same issue

Hello Alexander, just wanted to say the above helped me so much!!! I searched many forums and articles and you were the only one that had the answer. Thank you

Hi,

I need to show whether the time elapsed between 2 dates is within the required time frame.

I have generated the different between the 2 dates using:

=INT(W4-C4)&" days "&TEXT(W4-C4,"h"" hrs ""m"" mins """)

And then want to use a simple IF formula to determine if it's within the time frames:

=IF(Y4>K4, "No", "Yes")

where

Y4 is the cell with the first formula

and K4 is either 0 02:00, 1 00:00 or 5 00:00 (in custom format dd hh:mm)

This seems to work fine for the 2 hours and 1 day option but "Yes" is always return for the 5 day option.

I've also tried this where the first formula is a simple =W4-C4 and i have the same issue.

Can you help please?

Hello!

The formula in cell Y4 returns text. Therefore, you cannot compare text value with > or < .

In cell Y4, enter the time in the time format. For example, 2 days is 48:00:00.

Remember that date and time in Excel are numbers.

Try this formula

=IF((W4-C4) > K4, “No”, “Yes”)

I hope my advice will help you solve your task.

Hi, I'm having a classic problem with a graph being messed up because I have midnight time in my data.

I solved this once year's ago, but have since forgotten and can't find the answer. Was it something to do with writing that midnight time as decimal number?

Hi!

Sorry, it's not quite clear what you are trying to achieve.

Hi,

I was wondering if anybody can help me with this:

In an Excel sheet, I have accumulated deducted minutes in cell D1 displayed like this:

146:50 (146 hrs & 50 minutes)

cell formatted as: [h]:mm

I want to display deducted time in 3 separate cells like this:

H10 G10 F10

18 2 50

(days) (hrs.) (min.)

** each 8 hours = 1 day deduction

Thanks in advance,

Jaafar

Hello!

To get working days, hours and minutes, use these 3 formulas:

=INT(D1*24/8)

=INT(MOD(D1*24,8))

=(D1*24-INT(D1*24))*60

Hope this is what you need.

Hi,

This is what I needed. Problem solved.

Many many thanks, Alexander.

Hi Hi!

This should solve your task.

Hi & thanks for your most excellent site, it has come in handy for me so many times!

I have a problem where I'm trying to calculate the difference between two datetimes like this

Start: 29/Nov/21 11:52 AM

End: 1/Dec/21 5:38 PM

Excel nicely converts the above when pasting in to the cells A2 & B2 as follows:

A2: 29/11/2021 11:52

B2: 01/12/2021 17:38

C2: =B2-A2 returns the difference, expressed by Excel as: 02/01/1900 05:46

D2: =int(C2) returns the days, expressed by Execl as: 2 (format cell to number)

E2: =MOD(B2-A2,1) gives me just the time, expressed by Execl as: 05:46:00

So, I can use the above to deterrmine days & hours. If I use 8 hours as a working day, 2 days equate to 16 hours, plus the 5:46, would equate to 21:46 hours:minutes.

1. I'm wondering if there's a better way than the above?

2. My second problem comes from having to account for weekends (non-working times).

I have no idea how to do this. I suspect I'd have to use a calendar?

Would really appreciate your thoughts.

Many thanks,

Derrick

Hello!

Try this formula in cell C2:

=B2-A2-NETWORKDAYS.INTL(A2,B2,"1111100")

The NETWORKDAYS.INTL function counts the number of weekends. In this formula, these are Saturday and Sunday.

I hope I answered your question. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Hi I've been trying a few different formulas to convert from time to an hour decimal but they're all giving me the same odd results.

eg. for A1*24

7:35 is producing 559.58

I've made sure the format is decimal, and tried it in different ones but same issue. Any help would be awesome. thanks =)

Hi, how can I convert time 06:15 to 6.25? Thanks

Hi!

Have you tried the ways described in this blog post?

The answer to your question is in the first paragraph of this article.

Yes, but it doesn't work.

Well, the time that I need to convert is a result of calculated time. i.e. Start time is 9:00 (A1), end time is 18:30 (B1). I use the subtraction formula (=B1-A1) to get 9:30 (C1), and then I use the formula =C1*24 as stated in the first paragraph but it gives me 12:00 instead of 9.5. I am not sure what I did wrong in converting the 9:30 to 9.5. Please advise.

Hi!

If you want to count the time as a decimal number, then set the correct number format - decimal or General.

Got it, it works now. Thank you so much :)

Hi!

Read the first paragraph of this article carefully.

I have a column for duration. It varies from 22S to 17M 13S. Is it possible to create a formula to read this in 00:00:00 format? I can do something like =timevalue("0".&Left(C1,1)&":""&MID(C1,4,2)) for a duration of 2m 46s but that formula then wouldn't work for the next cell if it is 17m 59s. Is there a way to have one formula convert varying durations to the 00:00:00 format?

Hello!

If I understand your task correctly, the following formula should work for you:

=SUBSTITUTE(IF(ISNUMBER((SEARCH("m",C1))), "0:"&SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(C1,"m ",":"),"s",""), "0:0:"&SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(C1,"m ",":"),"s","")),"m",":0")

I hope my advice will help you solve your task.

It worked. Thank you.

I am creating a sheet to calculate how much time it will take to perform a series of daily tasks. I have a set number of items that require 7 minutes of work per item. I.e. I have a wo that states standard time to complete 1 = 7 minutes so in my mind if I utilize military time as a decimal 0.12 * 150 = 18 which is incorrect If I state a whole number i.e. 7 * 150 = 1050. How do I get this to calculate expected time to complete to show as time and be correct?

Kindly help. How do I convert 7h 27m 51s to HH.MM

Hi!

Have you tried the ways described in this blog post? Use example "Formula 3: HOUR, MINUTE and SECOND functions".

If this is not what you wanted, please describe the problem in more detail.

Hi,

Can you please help me:

2m 46s need to change in this form 00:02:46

thanks in advance

Hi,

For your data, you can use the formula:

=TIMEVALUE("0:"&LEFT(C1,1)&":"&MID(C1,4,2))

Pay attention to the following paragraph of the article above: Convert text to time using TIMEVALUE function

don't know if you can help but kevin asked the same question of 5th feb

I have task that need to be completed each different time but I am sure if I get the one calculation right it can be change for that length of time for example.

1 task takes 20 mins over a week they do 392 which in my head is 20 x 392 = 7840 minutes

my simple head is divide that by 60 to gat 130.67 but then if I use =CONVERT(M204,"mn","hr")/24 I get 5.44 that convert to 10 hours 40 minutes it seems which way I use a formula I get a different answer

the other times are

1 task x 20 mins

1 task x 30 mins

1 task x 75 mins

1 task x 45 mins

but I I can get the right formula changing the length of time should be easy …….. or will it

what is the right formula for this to give me the right length of time in hours and minutes for all these jobs

thanks in advance

Hello!

If I understood your problem correctly, then to convert minutes to hours use the formula

=A1/60/24

Then set the cell custom format to "37:30:55"

I hope my advice will help you solve your task.

How to convert 56 to 056:00 in Excel

Thnx

Hello!

If I understand your task correctly, the following formula should work for you:

=TIME(0,56,0)

Use a custom date format

[hh]:"0"mm:ss

I hope this will help

Hi there,

Is it possible to convert time 08:30 to 08.30 instead of 08.5

Thanks,

Hello!

Time cannot be shown using a point. But you can convert it to text

=TEXT(A1,"hh.mm")

I hope my advice will help you solve your task.

Hi,

How could i convert shift times in to hours as a formula.

For example, if someone is working from 6am - 2 pm 5 days a week, how can I get the total hours worked calculated?

Hello!

This question has been asked many times. For example, here.

I hope it’ll be helpful.

I am trying to keep track of my employees hours worked in Excel. I do not need to calculate their "In" and "Out" times, but instead calculate their bi-weekly total hours to ensure they do not go over their allotted 69 hours per month.

Example:

Debra worked 31.45 hours for pay period 1 of 2.

Right now I have =69-31.45 to show me how many hours she has leftover for the month. However, it is giving me 37.55 - which is incorrect.

How can I change the whole number in Excel from 100 to 60 so it will calculate her remaining hours?

I hope this makes sense! I have been on a hunt to figure this out - YouTube, Google, my Excel book and I cannot figure this out.

Any help with this is SOOOO appreciated :)

I'm trying to take a Start Time and add 1 minute per question being answered to calculate an end time.

What I currently have:

(F13) Time Format (HH:MM) Start Time: Manually enter Time "example. 21:00"

(G13) Number Format Total Questions: =(Results!K3) "example. 153"

(H13) End Time: =SUM(TIMEVALUE(F13:G13)) "Result: Error Value"

Could someone help me resolve the error?

Hello!

If the number of minutes is written in cell G13, then you can add minutes to all of them with the formula

=F13 + G13/1440

I hope I answered your question.

How do you do the first example you shared if the time is greater than 12? for example, I have time 23:56

and I would like to convert it to minutes. When I use this formula =(R11*1440) I am getting 14396 - this should be 1436. Why is this happening? Thanks!

Hello!

My result is 1436. Check cell R11, you may have entered the date and time, not just time.

I want to convert minutes in HH:MM:SS format but condition is minute showing in General

For Example

Total min 200 is nothing but 03:20:00

Is there any formula to convert like mentioned above?
