Default Formula to convert time zones??

Hello - I wanted to convert time zones, for example from New York (EST) to
London (GMT) - is there a formula out there for me to use? I would like to
just time in a time and Excel will automatically convert. Using Excel 2003

Thanks.

Well, it's just a matter of adding or subtracting so many hours, isn't
it? EST is 5 hours behind GMT, so if you enter GMT time in A1, put
this in B1:

=A1-5/24

to get EST in B1. Format both cells in time format.

Hope this helps.

If you've got New York time in A2 and the offset of New York from London in
B1 in hours (currently -5), then use
=A2-B$1/24

[Remember also that London is not currently on GMT, but on BST, which is
GMT+1.]
