Default Time - converting HH:MM:SS to Minutes

Is there a way I can use a time entered in a cell in the format hh:mm:ss and
convert it into a decimal of minutes?

I have tried using the 'Time' function but can only get it to work if I
enter each of the three parts in separate columns.

Thanks

Noel

You could use a helper cell with a formula:

=A1*24*60
(Format it as general, though)
