I have a current formula I'm using thats converting hours worked into decimals - ie; 53 hours 49 minutes > 53.81667 How do I add to the formula so its only showing 53.81 =VALUE(MID(A1,1,FIND(":",A1,1)-1))+VALUE(MID(A1,FIND(":",A1,1)+1,LEN(A1)))/60

i need help adding up my hours in my billg worksheet. i enter hours both in the "time Entries' and "Bill" sheets. The time is in hours and minutes, so 1.45 is 1 hour and 45 minutes, but in the billing sheet its adding the time up in decimals, so in other words if i enter 1.45 + 1.20, excel will total it as 2.65, and it should be 3.05.

I use Excel in Office 365. When I enter a calculation in a cell, the cell being formatted at %, Excel automatically expands the numebr decimals and widens the column width. How can I stop this? I notices when I look into number formats, custom formats there is a custom % format with over 10 decimals. I deleted this custom format. The I entered the same calculation and again Excel expands the decimals and widens the column. When I check custom number formats, Excel has added back the % format with over 10 decimals. How can I stop Excel from adding decimals and widening the column?
