    Covert date/time to military time hour only

    Hello,

    i converted "6/1/2013 1:30:41 AM" to show as just "01" (military hour), but I am not able to do anything with it because when you click on the cell it still reads as "6/1/2013 1:30:41 AM". How can i convert the date/time to just "01" so i can sort or subtotal?

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    Formatting does not change the actual contents of a cell, just the cosmetics - how it looks. If you want to change the actual contents of a cell, you usually need to apply a formula to it. Something like this, in B1 (assuming your data is in A1)...

    =TIME(HOUR(A1),0,0)
    and then format custom as hh
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)

    Hi,

    What do you mean by 'converted'? Is the cell a date number like 41280 that's formatted to show just the hour. i.e. are you just formatting it rather than converting it as you say.

    Maybe in another cell...
    =(A1-INT(A1))*24
