Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help create a VBA code to convert all data starts with "24 to 30"  at Column A (Source sheet) into 00 to 06.

E.g. Data at cell A253 (24:19:02.00) become 00:19:02.00, data at Cell A300 (26:10:00.00) converted into 02:10:00.00, and data at cell A349 (29:52:21.00) become 05:52:21.00.

Hope Experts could help me create this feature. Attached the workbook for Experts perusal.

Hi Cartillo

I've created a little function to do this, which I have included in your module1. It looks like this:

Function TransformTime(sTimeIn As String) As String

    Dim sNewTime As String
    Dim i As Integer
    
    Select Case Val(Left$(sTimeIn, 2))
    Case 24 To 30
        i = Val(Left$(sTimeIn, 2))
        i = i - 24
        sNewTime = Format$(i, "00") & Mid$(sTimeIn, 3)
    Case Else
        sNewTime = sTimeIn
    End Select
    
    TransformTime = sNewTime
End Function

Open in new window


I hope it's what you were looking for.

Hi plummet,

Thanks for the code. Is that a possible to retain the data in the same column but make an alteration only at the start of the time?

Hi Cartillo

Gowflow seems to have a good solution. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you earlier but I have been too busy to spend time on EE.

Good luck.
