    How do I convert week or day numbers into its correct format in words/numbers in Excel?

    Hi all,

    In Microsoft Excel 2010, does anyone how we can convert week or day numbers into its correct format?

    For example, if the answer is 9.8 in cell X. Cell X being weeks.

    9.8 is 9 weeks 5 days 14 hours and 24 minutes.

    Or 68.6 days.

    How do we get the answer 9.8 (weeks) to display as “9 weeks 5 days 14 hours and 24 minutes” or 68.6 (days) as “9 weeks 5 days 14 hours and 24 minutes”?

    Many thanks.

    With
    A1: a number of weeks and partial weeks.....9.8

    This regular formula returns that value formatted as you indicated:

    In that example, the formula returns this text: 9 week(s) 5 day(s) 14 hour(s) 24 minute(s)

    Is that something you can work with?

    Hi,

    Sure. Let’s say cell A1 = 68.6

    Cell A1 being days

    We want to convert this to months and days so it reads as “ 1 months, 2 days” etc (just an example) in cell B1

    Also how we convert it so it reads as “68 days, X hours”. Etc. in cell C1

    Thanks,

    That "months" requirement can be troublesome.
    What constitutes a month? 30 days?

    With
    A1: 68.6

    Maybe this:

    For that example, the formula returns: 2 month(s) 8 day(s) 14 hour(s) 24 minute(s)

    Does that help?
