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

1. ## 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,

Many thanks. Yes thats great. Do you know a similiar formula to convert a number (days) into format that will show for example 2 days, 15 hours 24 mins?

Can you post a sample number and what you want it to translate to?

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?

Yes 30 days please , thanks

With
A1: 68.6

Maybe this:
``Please Login or Register  to view this content.``
For that example, the formula returns: 2 month(s) 8 day(s) 14 hour(s) 24 minute(s)

Does that help?
