You can't add integer directly to time formula
Excelchat Expert 07/09/2017 - 06:16
if you want to add hrs in time then you have to first divide your number (in this case its 30) with 24 and then add it
Excelchat Expert 07/09/2017 - 06:17
if you want to add seconds then divide the number with 1440
Excelchat Expert 07/09/2017 - 06:18
Sr if you want to add minutes then divide the number with 1440
Excelchat Expert 07/09/2017 - 06:18
and if you want to add seconds then divide the number with 86400
Excelchat Expert 07/09/2017 - 06:19
i suggest you first divide the number (if hrs then 30/24) in seperate cell and change the format of the cell to time and then use that cell in the formula
Excelchat Expert 07/09/2017 - 06:20
it is the best and the easiest way to solve this type of problem
Excelchat Expert 07/09/2017 - 06:20
please confirm if i gave you the right solution
