Column B needs time zone descriptor also.

Example UTC -5:00 Central Time, US.  
Also the plus(+) or minus(-) sign in front of the zone should be stated explicitly.


my sheet >> https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0ApGg6c9aeywQdGZ5VzcxZHljZkJjQmJ5Y2hJMFgzYUE&hl=en
potential examples >> http://www.michaelapproved.com/articles/timezone-dropdown-select-list/

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I need to understand this.
Are we updating the info at google?
Do we save it back there?
What happens if more than one users save it with different updates?

In any case I think we should be posting the results in this forum because the sheets may be deleted from google and this question looses its functionality.

You are right Saqib. The only reason I haven't posted anything back was that question was accepted after I updated the google spreadsheet and before I got back to the question. The solution also becomes somewhat irrelevant in this case since it will only work on the google spreadsheet. Anyway using the now updated version:

Tables changed in sheet3 to add a description i A and Time Zones in B
enter in C2
=if(A2="","",mid(text(now()+vlookup(B2,sheet3!A:B,2,false)/24+5/24,"'Weekday 'EEE"),8,10))
and copy down
enter in E2
=if(A2="","",text(now()+vlookup(B2,sheet3!A:B,2,false)/24+5/24,"hh:mm:ss a"))
and copy down
enter in F2
=if(A2="","",text(now()+vlookup(B2,sheet3!A:B,2,false)/24+5/24,"HH:mm:ss"))
and copy down

Cheers,
Curt

This is a copy of the google spreadsheet which currently is working. It will not work properly in Excel bu all formulas used in this question and related questions can be seen.
