    Converting Time Frame based on Cell Values

    Guru's

    I've looked all over the place with no luck.

    Is there a function to change time frame based on cell value.

    For example, in column D i have a list of date and times values in Central time and in column E i have values of "Central" "Pacific" or "Eastern".

    Is there a way to change time based on values and place results on column G?

    Attachment is an idea on what i would like to have.

    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    hi reyrey. 2 ways here. 1 is to put the time differences in a table somewhere in say J4:K6
    Eastern -1
    Central 0
    Pacific -2
    then do a VLOOKUP like this:
    =D4+VLOOKUP(E4,$J$4:$K$6,2,0)/24

    the other way is to exclude the table & do multiple IFs:
    =D4-IF(E4="Eastern ",1/24,IF(E4="Central ",0,2/24))
    notice my formula for the Time Zone has a space. i followed yours. your Column E texts has a trailing space

    Pacific time to Central time should be +2 instead of -2 from your example
