Hello, needing a macro to perform the following:

I have a sheet that ingests data from the web and then I parse out the data via a macro.  What I need is in cell BG1, there will be four possible values in this cell, 00Z, 06Z, 12Z, 18Z.  Each one is a time reference like 18Z is 18 UTC time.  Based on which value is in BG1, I need make BE2=BG1, then add one hour and put that vlaue in BF 2, add another hour and put that value in BG 2.

I need this in a macro format as I have to clear the data often and the formulas will get deleted.

This macro should get you the results you want:
Sub FormatTime()
Dim i, x As Integer

i = Left(Range("BG1").Value, 2)
Range("BE2").Select
For x = 1 To 19
  If i > 23 Then
    i = 0
  End If
    ActiveCell.Value = i
    i = i + 1
    ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
Next x

End Sub
