"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

With VBA:

Sub CallStringToTime()
    Dim strTimeString As String
    strTimeString = "1,90"
    MsgBox StringToTime(strTimeString)
End Sub

Function StringToTime(strTimeString As String) As Date
    Dim strTimeParts() As String
    strTimeParts = Split(strTimeString, ",")
    StringToTime = TimeSerial(strTimeParts(0), strTimeParts(1), 0)
End Function

If your values are decimals, a one-liner will do:

datHours = TimeSerial(Int(t), (t - Int(t)) * 100, 0)

ConvTime: Format(TimeSerial(Val([tm]), Mid([tm], InStr([tm], ",") + 1), 0), "h \hr mm \m\i\n")

The above will convert 1,90 to give you 2 hr 30 min

I still believe 0,90 and 1,90 represent decimal numbers, thus should be treated as so.


Yes, that's interesting. But if the asker has continental settings so that 1,90 is the same as decimal 1.9 hours, then it would convert to 1 hour and 54 minutes, which is not what the asker expects.
