Convert minutes into hours and minutes
I use a spreadsheet that totals minutes in different cells. I need those
totals added then converted into hours and minutes, NOT into days and hours and minutes, and NOT into fractional hours. As an example, 1520 minutes should be 25 hours and 20 minutes or 25:20. Days, hours, minutes (01:00:20) does me no good, nor does fractional hour (25.33). I used the TEXT formula, but found that minutes could not exceed 1440 (24 hours). In the example above with 1520 minutes, it returned 01:20. The CONVERT formula falls short since it only converts minutes into (fractional) hours and not minutes into hours and minutes. Any help?

Format the cell as Custom [h]:mm.
The formula in the cell shouLd be: =SUM(A1:A100)/1440  Vasant "southtxxbox" wrote in message ... I use a spreadsheet that totals minutes in different cells.

If your minutes are entered in nontime format, add them and divide by 1440.
Example: =SUM(A1:A19)/1440 Format the result [h]:mm The site below will give you some understanding why this works how times are stored in Excel. http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/ExcelDateandTimes.htm Steve "southtxxbox" wrote in message ...

Convert minutes into hours and minutes
What if I want to display the converted hours and minutes as 25 h 20 min and
not as 25:20? When I tried to format the cell as Custom [h] h mm min Excel though the first m of "min" meant minutes and displayed 25 h 20 20in. How to go around this and display neatly time with text abbreviations 25 h 20 min?

That takes a special type of stupid.
