Excel: Formula to separate out hours minutes and seconds


I have a cell that has a value format like 0:00:30, (30 seconds). When I view the cell it shows 12:00:30 AM. It's a count down timer that is being used to fill in my textbox in a userform.  However, when I pass the value to my textbox it shows up as a value "3.47222222222222E-04".

It maybe because of the way I am passing it.  Here is the code
TimeLeft = Sheets("Event Management").Range("C8")

Or if that isn't the fix, then I was thinking I would some how separate the cell that has the formula as 0:00:30 and show 0 hours:0 minutes: and 30 seconds.  Something like that..

Any help is much appreciated.

pls try

TimeLeft = format(Sheets("Event Management").Range("C8"), "hh:mm:ss AM/PM")
