# Help with formula

if I have a time in cell P4 like 12:00 and a date and time in cell T4 like 31/07/2015 12:15

what would be the formula to say

If T4 [Time] is less than P4, Yes, No

I thought maybe something like

=IF(RIGHT(T4,5)<=P4,"Yes","No")

Date and time are recognised in Excel as a serial number. For example 31/07/15 12:15 as a number would be 42216.51  the 42216 being the serial number for the date 31/07/15 and .51 being the portion of a day, ie the decimal portion of the integer.

MOD function divides the number by a factor and gives the remainder, so dividing by one gives you the decimal remainder.
