Hello experts,

I have a table in excel containing time but written as number (not time values)

For example 600 instead of 06:00

I need your help in developing a user function that would convert 600 to 06:00.

Please see attched sample sheet.

Thank you     Convert-number-to-Time.xlsx

Hi viralypatel
Thanks for the suggested solution, but I've tried this already and didn't work. It gave me wrong dates and time.

Have you tried it yourself? Did it work?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I don't normally go near date/time questions, but this seems to work for your sample:

=TIME(C2/100,RIGHT(C2,2),0)

Mehawitchi,

This is a cell formula. If you need a VBA formula it should be easy to convert.

=TIME(MID(C2,1,CHOOSE(LEN(C2),1,1,1,2)),MID(C2,CHOOSE(LEN(C2),3,3,2,3), 2),0)

Sincerely,
T-Bone

You can use this formula in another column, see attached

=TEXT(C2,"00\:00")+0

format as hh:mm

Hey, I'm overwhelmed.

All solutions worked but my preference goes to StephenJR because in one step I have a time value
