To convert a number of minutes into a more conventional hours, minutes and seconds format in Excel, just follow these two simple steps:
1) Divide the number by (24*60), so if the number is in cell A1, put a formula in any other cell which reads =A1/(24*60)
2) Then choose the required time format from Format, Cells, Number.
good to use interesting for excel digestors
Just what I needed. Thank for sharing!
Step two should read: 2) Then choose the required time format from Format, Cells, <b>Time</b>.
I tried this, but it does not work with large numbers, ie 2400 minutes should be 40 hours (60*40) but it gives you 16 hours instead. Other than that, it is good.
