In MS Excel, how do I convert time from hh:mm to hh.hh?  For example, 4 hours and forty-five minutes = 4:45.  In decimal hours form it is four and three-quarters hours or 4.75.  Thus what is the equation to convert 4:45 (hh:mm) to 4.75 Hours (hh.hh)?

Hi, bobbat.

Just multiply the time by 24 and set the cell's format to Number with 2 places of decimal.

(Excel stores 24 hours as 1, 12 hours as .5 etc.)

Regards,
Brian.

assuming a date/time value in cell A1

e.g. 2013/02/01 4:45

this formula would provide the answer 4.75

=HOUR(A1)+(MINUTE(A1)/60)

Careful, for "04:44:59", it displays 4.73 whereas mine is the more accurate 4.75. (Using two places of decimals.)

On the other hand, mine assumes that the input is a Time, whereas PortletPaul's will handle Date as well.

good point Redmond

how about this?

=TIME(HOUR(A1),MINUTE(A1),SECOND(A1))*24

works for time and date/time
format to desired decimal precision
